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 Linksys LGS105?

Linksys LGS105 is a popular unmanaged Gigabit Ethernet switch that provides reliable and high-speed connectivity for small to medium-sized networks. By integrating MetricFire with the Linksys LGS105, users can enhance their network monitoring capabilities and gain valuable insights into network performance, traffic patterns, and potential issues.


Here are some key benefits and features of integrating MetricFire with the Linksys LGS105:


  1. Network Traffic Monitoring: MetricFire allows you to monitor the network traffic passing through the Linksys LGS105 switch. It collects and analyzes network flow data, providing you with detailed information on bandwidth usage, top talkers, protocols, and traffic patterns. With this data, you can identify bottlenecks, optimize network performance, and detect any unusual activity or security threats.

  2. Real-time Alerting: MetricFire enables you to set up customized alerts based on specific network metrics or conditions. For example, you can receive alerts when network bandwidth exceeds a certain threshold or when there is a sudden increase in network latency. These real-time alerts ensure that you are promptly notified of any potential issues, allowing you to take immediate action and minimize downtime.

  3. Historical Data Analysis: MetricFire stores historical data collected from the Linksys LGS105 switch, allowing you to perform in-depth analysis and gain insights into long-term network trends. By visualizing historical data through interactive charts and graphs, you can identify patterns, forecast future network requirements, and make informed decisions about network capacity planning and optimization.

  4. Centralized Monitoring: MetricFire provides a centralized monitoring platform that allows you to monitor multiple Linksys LGS105 switches from a single dashboard. This eliminates the need to access each switch individually and provides a holistic view of your network infrastructure. You can easily navigate between different switches, compare metrics, and correlate data to troubleshoot network issues more efficiently.

  5. Integration with Other Tools: MetricFire offers seamless integration with other tools and services, allowing you to combine data from various sources for comprehensive network monitoring. For example, you can integrate MetricFire with logging systems, application performance monitoring tools, or other network devices to gain a complete understanding of your infrastructure's health and performance.


To integrate MetricFire with the Linksys LGS105 switch, you typically need to configure SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) on the switch and provide the necessary SNMP credentials to MetricFire. Once the integration is established, MetricFire will start collecting and analyzing network metrics from the switch.


The integration between MetricFire and the Linksys LGS105 switch empowers organizations to monitor, analyze, and optimize their network infrastructure effectively. By leveraging MetricFire's powerful features and insights, businesses can ensure optimal network performance, identify and resolve issues proactively, and ultimately deliver a reliable and efficient network experience to their users.
