What is MetricFire?

MetricFire is a full-scale platform that provides infrastructure, system, and application monitoring using a suite of open-source monitoring tools. We enable you to use Hosted Graphite and aesthetic custom dashboards to visualize your metrics so you can understand what is happening.



MetricFire offers users a complete ecosystem of end-to-end infrastructure monitoring, comprised of popular open-source monitoring software services: Graphite and popular dashboards. Plugins for many other open-source projects are preconfigured, such as StatsD, collectd, and Kubernetes. You get all these within a hosted environment as a single product. Not only does MetricFire fit well into the infrastructure monitoring use-case, such as network monitoring and server monitoring, but we also do application monitoring and business intelligence.


Through this hosted environment, MetricFire boosts the unique features of open-source projects to give you more functionality than the original products. Below are some of the MetricFire features at a glance: 

  • Cloud Monitoring

What is 3Com Baseline Switches?

MetricFire is a comprehensive monitoring and observability platform that enables organizations to gain deep insights into their infrastructure, applications, and services. It offers a wide range of monitoring capabilities, including real-time metrics, logs, and traces, to help businesses optimize their performance and ensure reliability. One of the key strengths of MetricFire is its ability to integrate seamlessly with various networking devices, including 3Com Baseline Switches.


3Com Baseline Switches are a series of network switches designed for small to medium-sized businesses. These switches provide reliable connectivity and efficient data transfer within a local area network (LAN). By integrating MetricFire with 3Com Baseline Switches, businesses can effectively monitor and analyze network performance metrics, identify bottlenecks, and proactively address issues.


MetricFire offers several integration options to connect with 3Com Baseline Switches:


  1. SNMP Integration: MetricFire supports Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), which is widely used for network monitoring. 3Com Baseline Switches come with built-in SNMP support, allowing MetricFire to collect a wide range of SNMP metrics, such as interface traffic, error rates, and CPU utilization. This integration enables administrators to monitor the overall health and performance of their switches and quickly identify any anomalies.

  3. Syslog Integration: Syslog is a standard protocol used for logging and transmitting system events in a network. MetricFire can integrate with the syslog functionality of 3Com Baseline Switches, capturing log messages generated by the switches. By analyzing these logs, MetricFire can help administrators detect network errors, security breaches, and other critical events in real time.

  5. Flow Data Integration: 3Com Baseline Switches can generate flow data using protocols like NetFlow or sFlow. Flow data provides valuable insights into network traffic patterns, including top talkers, protocols used, and bandwidth consumption. MetricFire supports the ingestion and analysis of flow data, allowing organizations to understand their network traffic trends, identify potential bottlenecks, and optimize their network configurations accordingly.


Once the integration between MetricFire and 3Com Baseline Switches is established, administrators can leverage MetricFire's powerful monitoring and analytics features. The MetricFire platform provides a user-friendly interface to visualize and analyze collected metrics and logs. It offers customizable dashboards, alerting capabilities, and advanced querying options to gain granular visibility into network performance and troubleshoot issues efficiently.


MetricFire provides built-in support for various other integrations, such as cloud infrastructure monitoring, application performance monitoring, and log management platforms. This allows organizations to consolidate their monitoring efforts, bringing all critical data sources under one centralized platform.


MetricFire's integration with 3Com Baseline Switches empowers businesses with comprehensive network monitoring capabilities. By collecting and analyzing SNMP metrics, syslog data, and flow data, MetricFire enables administrators to optimize their network performance, improve security, and ensure the overall reliability of their IT infrastructure.
