PQ – Show 14 – NFD4 Statseeker Wrap UP

Following the presentation from Statseeker at Network Field Day 4, we were able to duck into an unused room and quickly get some reactions from the some of the delegates.

We covered the Statseeker product in detail in a podcast over at the Packet Pushers [Show 116 – Statseeker and Network Monitoring – Sponsored](http://packetpushers.net/show-116-statseeker-and-network-monitoring-sponsored/) . Statseeker makes a SNMP polling engine that focuses on 90% of what you need in a minimal footprint.

Statseeker has several key points that I can get excited about . They can poll every interface, anywhere in the network with a single machine.

    One of major drawbacks of StatSeeker is unable to add your own SNMP MIB. Say you want to monitor load a balancer’s hit/sec on a particular vip/server you have to submit SNMP MIB to StatSeeker and they will evaluate it to see if it fits to their product.
