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 Cisco 3900 ISR?

The Cisco 3900 Integrated Services Router (ISR) is a series of routers designed to provide reliable, secure, and scalable connectivity for businesses and enterprises. These routers are equipped with various features, including routing, security, voice, and data services, making them a crucial component of many network infrastructures.


To effectively monitor and manage Cisco 3900 ISRs using MetricFire, you can follow these steps:

  1. SNMP Monitoring:

    • SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) is widely supported by Cisco devices, including the 3900 ISR series.
    • Enable SNMP on your Cisco 3900 ISR device, configure SNMP communities, and set up SNMP traps if needed.
    • In MetricFire, configure SNMP data collection to gather performance and status information from your Cisco 3900 ISR.
  3. Metrics Collection:

    • Define the specific metrics you want to monitor on your Cisco 3900 ISR, such as CPU usage, memory utilization, interface status, and network traffic.
    • Configure MetricFire to collect and visualize these metrics in real time using SNMP queries.
  5. Alerting and Notification:

    • Set up alerting thresholds in MetricFire based on your desired performance parameters.
    • Configure notification channels, such as email or SMS, to receive alerts when specific thresholds are breached.
  7. Dashboard Creation:

    • Build customized dashboards in MetricFire to display real-time and historical performance data from your Cisco 3900 ISR.
    • These dashboards can provide at-a-glance insights into the health of your network infrastructure.
  9. Historical Data Analysis:

    • Use MetricFire's data storage and analysis capabilities to track historical trends, identify anomalies, and make informed decisions regarding network optimization and capacity planning.
  11. Integration with Other Tools:

    • MetricFire can also be integrated with other monitoring and management tools used in your network environment, creating a comprehensive observability solution.

Sending Cisco metrics to MetricFire is easy, but if you have any more questions on configuring Cisco ISRs, book a call!
