Loughborough University is a large campus-based university with an extensive campus network that covers several hundred buildings and provides approximately 45,000 edge ports. The campus network is critical to the university’s business, supporting not only teaching, research, student residence halls and administration but also two data centres, a high performance cluster (HPC Midlands) and a number of sporting bodies based on the campus.
Given the importance of the network, it is vital the university has a reliable, robust monitoring system in place. Statseeker provides a stable monitoring platform bringing together a number of different monitoring roles. Statseeker provides per port monitoring, historical data highlighting traffic trends, downtime reports and SLA monitoring. We found Statseeker to be a low cost, robust and easy to install solution, capable of monitoring Loughborough University’s extensive campus network.
