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

  • Hosted Graphite

  • Dashboards

The key thing to remember is that Hosted Graphite by MetricFire is more than just Graphite. Our Hosted Graphite product actually adds data dimensionality and better data storage.


The benefits of MetricFire are:

  • Simple, low-cost pricing
    A structured pricing model based on unique time series metrics allows you to work within your budget. The predictability and transparent pricing allow you to keep your costs in check and plan for the future. 1 metric is 1 metric.

  • Easy-to-use dashboards
    Easily share your dashboards with clients for free.

  • Responsive alerting
    Alert notification integrations PagerDuty, Slack, email, and webhooks.

  • Freedom of customization
    Custom metrics through your code.

  • Fantastic customer support
    Highly available support is provided by engineers for engineers to get you set up quickly.

  • Enterprise-ready
    Dedicated clusters for users that need their own environment. 

What is Linksys Ethernet Switches?

MetricFire is a comprehensive monitoring and observability platform that enables organizations to gain valuable insights into their infrastructure and applications. While MetricFire itself does not directly integrate with Linksys Ethernet switches, it can still be used alongside these switches to monitor and analyze network performance.


Linksys Ethernet switches are widely used in small to medium-sized networks and provide reliable connectivity for local area networks (LANs). These switches offer various features such as multiple ports, VLAN support, and Quality of Service (QoS) capabilities, making them an essential component of many network setups.


To leverage MetricFire's monitoring capabilities in conjunction with Linksys Ethernet switches, you can employ several strategies:


  • SNMP Monitoring: Linksys Ethernet switches often support the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), which allows for the monitoring of network devices. MetricFire can utilize SNMP to gather relevant metrics from the switches, such as link status, bandwidth utilization, and error rates. By configuring MetricFire to collect SNMP data from the switches, you can gain insights into the performance and health of your network infrastructure.


  • Network Flow Analysis: MetricFire can also integrate with flow monitoring tools like NetFlow or sFlow. These protocols provide detailed information about network traffic patterns, including source and destination IP addresses, ports, and protocol types. By analyzing flow data, MetricFire can help you identify bottlenecks, pinpoint abnormal traffic behavior, and optimize your network performance.


  • Log Monitoring: In addition to SNMP and flow analysis, MetricFire can ingest log data generated by Linksys Ethernet switches. By collecting and analyzing log messages, you can gain visibility into switch events, configuration changes, and potential issues. MetricFire's log monitoring capabilities allow you to set up alerts, search and filter log data, and troubleshoot network problems efficiently.


  • Integration with Other Monitoring Tools: MetricFire supports integration with a wide range of monitoring tools and services. If you are already using specific monitoring solutions alongside your Linksys Ethernet switches, you can integrate them with MetricFire to consolidate your monitoring efforts. This way, you can have a centralized view of your network and application performance, leveraging the strengths of different tools while benefiting from MetricFire's powerful analytics and visualization capabilities.


By combining MetricFire's monitoring and observability platform with Linksys Ethernet switches you can gain a comprehensive understanding of your network infrastructure. With the ability to monitor SNMP metrics, analyze network flows, collect and analyze log data, and integrate with other monitoring tools, MetricFire empowers you to identify and resolve network issues, optimize performance, and ensure the reliability of your network environment.
