Completed in Q3 of 2013 by Opsview, this survey explored management of network technologies and standards. Over 250 respondents from around the world provided insight into core network functionality including SNMP, *flow technology, syslog management and preferred hardware vendors. Results showed that respondents were mostly concerned about network stability in their monitoring services, versus performance and user misuse. 68% of surveyed respondents use Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) traps in their network environments; with over half using V2, as opposed to V3 and V1. Netflow from CISCO held the majority of respondents’ results at almost seventy five percent, versus sflow and jflow barely making up the remaining twenty five percent. Just over half of the surveyed respondents were monitoring syslogs with the majority of these using Open Source syslog monitoring tools. CISCO was also the clear winner of preferred hardware vendors with almost 75% of respondents indicating that was their preferred vendor choice. Over half of these indicated that an overwhelming majority of their network environment uses CISCO equipment. In addition, it was evident that while the majority of respondents backup their network configurations, nearly a third does not, meaning if a device failed all their network configs would be lost and would need to be reconfigured without a reference. In conclusion, the majority of respondents surveyed (82%) use some form of network monitoring service and use a combination of monitoring tools.
