Knowledgebase: NetResident

Can you give some performance metrics when NetResident is being used to monitor a heavily loaded network?
The program's performance depends on the CPU speed and RAM size. If you use the default monitoring settings, i.e. when all the plugins are enabled and all the ports are being monitored, an average Pentium4 3Ghz PC with 512 Mbytes of RAM can monitor a fully utilized 100 Mbit link. To monitor faster network links, you should set up filtering by station, limit the ports being monitored, and disable unnecessary plugins. The performance also depends on the type of traffic being monitored, so additional filters should be applied only if you experience performance problems.
