MetricFire is a powerful monitoring and analytics platform that enables organizations to gain deep insights into their network infrastructure, application performance, and system health. One of the key features of MetricFire is its ability to seamlessly integrate with various third-party tools and technologies, including HPE Aruba Ethernet switches.


HPE Aruba Ethernet switches are renowned for their reliability, performance, and scalability, making them a popular choice for many organizations. These switches provide a robust foundation for building high-speed, low-latency networks that can handle the demands of modern applications and data traffic. By integrating MetricFire with HPE Aruba Ethernet switches, organizations can enhance their network monitoring capabilities and ensure optimal performance and availability.


MetricFire offers a comprehensive set of monitoring tools and features that can be seamlessly integrated with HPE Aruba Ethernet switches. Here are some of the ways MetricFire enhances the monitoring capabilities of Aruba switches:


  • Real-time monitoring: MetricFire provides real-time monitoring of critical metrics such as network bandwidth utilization, latency, packet loss, and error rates. By collecting and visualizing these metrics in real time, administrators can quickly identify and address any network performance issues.


  • Alerting and notifications: MetricFire allows users to set up custom alerts and notifications based on predefined thresholds. This ensures that administrators are promptly alerted when specific network parameters exceed acceptable limits, enabling them to take immediate action and prevent potential downtime or performance degradation.


  • Historical analysis and reporting: MetricFire stores historical data from Aruba switches, allowing administrators to analyze network performance trends over time. This data can be used to identify patterns, make informed decisions about network capacity planning, and generate comprehensive reports for auditing and compliance purposes.


  • Visualization and dashboards: MetricFire offers a rich set of visualization tools, including customizable dashboards, graphs, and charts. These visualizations enable administrators to gain a holistic view of network performance and easily identify bottlenecks or anomalies.


  • Integration with other monitoring tools: MetricFire integrates seamlessly with other monitoring tools and technologies, enabling organizations to build a unified monitoring ecosystem. This integration allows administrators to correlate network performance metrics with other application or system-level metrics, providing a comprehensive view of the entire IT infrastructure.


To integrate MetricFire with HPE Aruba Ethernet switches, administrators need to configure the switches to export relevant metrics via protocols such as SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol). MetricFire can then ingest this data, process it, and present it in a user-friendly format within the MetricFire platform.


Integrating MetricFire with HPE Aruba Ethernet switches empowers organizations to effectively monitor and manage their network infrastructure. By leveraging MetricFire's monitoring and analytics capabilities, administrators can proactively identify and resolve network performance issues, ensuring optimal performance, reliability, and scalability of their Aruba switch deployments.

What is MetricFire?

MetricFire is a full-scale platform that provides infrastructure, system, and application monitoring using a suite of open-source tools. We will aggregate and store your data as time series metrics, which can be used to build custom dashboards and alerts.
