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.

What is Linksys SE3005v2?

MetricFire is a robust and versatile monitoring and analytics platform that helps businesses gain valuable insights into their systems and applications. Linksys SE3005v2, on the other hand, is a popular Ethernet switch that provides reliable network connectivity for small to medium-sized networks. To monitor your switch follow the steps below:


Before integrating MetricFire with the Linksys SE3005v2 switch, you need to set up a MetricFire account and create a project. 

  1. Go to the MetricFire website (https://www.metricfire.com/) and sign up for an account if you don't have one.
  2. Once you've signed up, log in to your MetricFire account and create a new project.
  3. In the project settings, take note of the API token, which you will need in the next steps.


Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is a standard protocol used for monitoring and managing network devices. To integrate the Linksys SE3005v2 switch with MetricFire, you need to enable SNMP on the switch.

  1. Connect to the Linksys SE3005v2 switch using a web browser by entering its IP address in the address bar.
  2. Log in to the switch's administration interface using your credentials.
  3. Navigate to the SNMP settings. The exact location may vary depending on the firmware version, but it is typically found under the "Administration" or "Management" section.
  4. Enable SNMP and configure the SNMP community string. The community string acts as a password for accessing SNMP data. Choose a strong community string and make a note of it for later use.
  5. Save the SNMP settings.


Now that SNMP is enabled on the Linksys SE3005v2 switch, you need to configure MetricFire to collect SNMP data from the switch. 

  1. Go back to your MetricFire project settings.
  2. Look for the "Integrations" or "Data Sources" section and find the SNMP integration.
  3. Click on the SNMP integration and provide the necessary information, including the IP address of the switch, SNMP community string, and other configuration options.
  4. Save the SNMP integration settings.


With MetricFire configured to collect SNMP data from the Linksys SE3005v2 switch, you can now monitor and analyze network performance metrics. MetricFire provides a user-friendly dashboard and various visualization options to help you gain insights into your network. Here are a few things you can do:

  1. Explore the available SNMP metrics in MetricFire and choose the ones you want to monitor. Common metrics include interface traffic, errors, CPU usage, and memory utilization.
  2. Create custom dashboards to visualize the SNMP metrics that are most relevant to your network. You can create graphs, charts, and tables to track the performance over time.
  3. Set up alerts and notifications to get notified when certain network metrics exceed predefined thresholds. This allows you to proactively address any performance issues.
  4. Use MetricFire's analytics features to perform an in-depth analysis of your network data. You can apply filters, aggregations, and statistical functions to gain deeper insights into your network's behavior.

Remember to regularly review your network metrics in MetricFire to identify trends, detect anomalies, and optimize your network performance accordingly.

Integrating MetricFire with the Linksys SE3005v2 switch allows you to monitor and analyze network performance metrics effectively. With the steps outlined in this guide, you can set up the integration and gain valuable insights into your network's behavior, helping you optimize your network infrastructure.
