MetricFire is a comprehensive monitoring and observability platform that enables organizations to gain deep insights into the performance and health of their infrastructure, applications, and services. One of the key strengths of MetricFire is its ability to seamlessly integrate with various systems and devices, including the Cisco Catalyst IE3200 Rugged Series Switches.


The Cisco Catalyst IE3200 Rugged Series Switches are designed to operate in harsh and demanding environments, providing reliable and secure connectivity for industrial networks. These rugged switches offer advanced features such as industrial-grade design, high resiliency, and easy deployment, making them a popular choice for industrial applications.


MetricFire offers an agent-based approach to monitor network devices such as switches, routers, and firewalls. By installing the MetricFire agent on the Cisco Catalyst IE3200 Rugged Series Switches, organizations can gather important performance metrics and logs to gain visibility into the switch's operation and ensure its optimal functionality.


You can easily get insights from your Cisco devices with the Telegraf plugin by downloading a custom telegraf config in your Hosted Graphite account if you navigate to Agents => Telegraf. Then install telegraf using the steps outlined in our docs, and replace the default config with the custom config at the path that telegraf is installed at.




Here are some key features and benefits of integrating MetricFire with Cisco Catalyst IE3200 Rugged Series Switches:


  1. Real-time monitoring: MetricFire collects and analyzes real-time data from the switch, providing organizations with accurate and up-to-date insights into its performance. This allows IT teams to proactively identify and address potential issues before they escalate and impact the network.

  3. Customizable dashboards: MetricFire provides customizable dashboards and visualizations, allowing users to create personalized views of the switch's performance metrics. These dashboards can include graphs, charts, and tables that provide at-a-glance visibility into key indicators such as bandwidth utilization, packet loss, and port status.

  5. Alerting and notifications: MetricFire enables users to set up alerts based on predefined thresholds or custom-defined conditions. When a specific metric exceeds or falls below the defined threshold, MetricFire can send notifications via email, SMS, or integrations with other collaboration tools like Slack or PagerDuty. This ensures that IT teams can quickly respond to any critical issues that arise with the Cisco Catalyst IE3200 Rugged Series Switches.

  7. Historical data analysis: MetricFire stores historical data, allowing organizations to analyze trends and patterns over time. This helps in capacity planning, performance optimization, and identifying any recurring issues or bottlenecks in the network.

  9. Log management and analysis: In addition to metrics, MetricFire also supports log management and analysis. It can collect and process log data from the Cisco Catalyst IE3200 Rugged Series Switches, enabling IT teams to correlate logs with performance metrics and gain deeper insights into network behavior and troubleshooting.

  11. Integration with other systems: MetricFire seamlessly integrates with a wide range of other monitoring and observability tools and platforms. This allows organizations to consolidate their monitoring efforts and centralize their data for a holistic view of their entire infrastructure.


By integrating MetricFire with Cisco Catalyst IE3200 Rugged Series Switches, organizations can gain enhanced visibility, control, and actionable insights into their industrial network infrastructure. With real-time monitoring, customizable dashboards, alerting capabilities, historical data analysis, and log management, MetricFire empowers IT teams to ensure the reliable and efficient operation of their network switches, ultimately improving overall network performance and uptime.
