|(protocol)||remote monitoring - (RMON) A network management protocol that
allows network information to be gathered at a single
computer. Whereas SNMP gathers network data from a single
type of Management Information Base (MIB), RMON 1 defines
nine additional MIBs that provide a much richer set of data
about network usage. For RMON to work, network devices, such
as hubs and switches, must be designed to support it.|
The newest version of RMON, RMON 2, provides data about traffic at the network layer in addition to the physical layer. This allows administrators to analyse traffic by protocol.
