Throughout my career, enterprise network interface capacity and interface error monitoring have been a huge monitoring gap in different organizations.
I use Splunk and Cacti together. Cacti is effective at monitoring interface throughput (and errors if configured) but can be challenging at times. I would love to use Splunk for interface throughput and error monitoring but obviously Splunk is designed for syslog.
Splunk has certainly filled the syslog gap. Many users are familiar with SPL. I'm wondering if there's a possibility of Splunk filling the snmp-read/snmp-trap gap where the same users can use their SPL skills to create monitoring solutions for SNMP data.
I know there are add-ons for snmp but it seems to me SNMP is a major monitoring protocol and Splunk is a major monitoring tool. Would it make sense if Splunk was compatible with SNMP out of the box with full support?
