Questions About The Dude

Wed Dec 16, 2020 7:09 pm

Good morning everyone,

I am a new user to The Dude. I work for a small bank and we are wanting to use it to help us map out our locations and to monitor the link between our branches.

My first question is, is there a way I can run The Dude's server on one of our Windows servers? Do I have to do that inside of a virtual machine?
I currently have the server running in a virtual box on my computer, but we would like to find a more long term solution for that.

For my second question, can we use The Dude to monitor cisco devices such as switches? We mainly want to monitor the traffic so we can determine if something goes down.

Thanks in advance for the help!

You can run a Mikrotik CHR with the Dude on a VM. This is a very good solution.

It can monitor devices via SNMP.
