MetricFire is a powerful monitoring and analytics platform that can be used to monitor a wide range of systems, applications, and infrastructure. One of the key advantages of MetricFire is its ability to integrate with a variety of hardware and software tools, including the Netgear GS105 switch. In this page, we will explore how MetricFire integrates with Netgear GS105 and the benefits of this integration.


Netgear GS105 is a 5-port gigabit Ethernet switch that provides high-speed connectivity for devices in a network. It is a plug-and-play switch that requires no configuration, making it easy to set up and use. It is an affordable and reliable solution for small businesses and home networks.


MetricFire offers a Netgear GS105 plugin that enables you to monitor the switch's performance and activity. The plugin collects data from the switch using SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol), a protocol used to manage and monitor devices on a network.


The Netgear GS105 plugin collects the following metrics:


  • Port traffic (bytes per second)
  • Port errors (number of errors per second)
  • Port status (up or down)
  • Switch temperature
  • CPU utilization
  • Memory utilization


With this data, you can monitor the switch's performance, identify issues, and optimize its configuration for better performance.


  • Better Visibility: With MetricFire, you can get a comprehensive view of your network's performance, including the Netgear GS105 switch. This enables you to identify issues and optimize your network configuration for better performance.


  • Proactive Monitoring: MetricFire enables you to set up alerts for specific metrics, so you can be notified when thresholds are exceeded or when issues arise. This enables you to take proactive measures to address issues before they become critical.


  • Time Savings: With MetricFire, you don't need to manually collect and analyze data from the Netgear GS105 switch. The plugin automates this process, saving you time and effort.


  • Better Decision Making: With access to real-time data and analytics, you can make informed decisions about your network configuration and infrastructure. This enables you to optimize your network for better performance and scalability.


The MetricFire integration with Netgear GS105 provides a powerful monitoring and analytics solution for small businesses and home networks. With the Netgear GS105 plugin, you can get real-time data and analytics about your switch's performance and activity, enabling you to optimize your network for better performance and scalability.
