In every production network,
monitoring is an essence. What if you can do monitoring with very advanced
features and the software that you get is for FREE? Yes that's possible.
MikroTik offer The Dude software free of charge. This software is used to
monitor network devices, controlling them using its tools and getting
notifications once a problem on the device occur.
However, making The Dude up
and running is not very easy and many engineers don't know how to use it. For
this reason, I have designed this course which speaks in details about MikroTik
The Dude and its features using practical LABS so you can apply this directly
to your network.
Additionally, I have added a
lecture in the 1st section of the course showing how you can monitor the
bandwidth traffic used by each user per IP on graphs. This is independent from
The Dude itself.
