Seamless Enterprise Monitoring and Data Collection

Netreo requires no agents. Instead it uses standards-based or vendor-specific technologies and APIs to collect, monitor, analyze, and report on all the IT resources in your infrastructure. Netreo is designed to be transparent to the user and administrators of the system, allowing for seamless monitoring of any network-connected device or application, whether hosted locally, or in a private or public cloud environment.

Baseline Statistics

Netreo is designed to collect a ‘baseline’ of data across any SNMP compliant device type, which typically includes:

  • CPU
  • Memory
  • Disk usage
  • Disk I/O
  • Network bandwidth
  • Network errors
  • Round-trip latency

Netreo uses WMI/Powershell for data collection in a Windows environment. In addition to the baseline stats above, you’ll also get instant visibility into:

  • CPU usage per-process
  • CPU Context switches
  • Number of running processes
  • Memory usage per-process
  • Disk usage per volume
  • Disk I/O per volume
  • Disk Queue statistics
  • Service status
  • Layer 7 application testing (DNS, FTP, Web, Database, etc)

In a VMWare environment, Netreo will connect to the VCenter API to automatically detect new hosts, guests, and datastores as they are configured in the environment. Netreo collects appropriate metrics based on the guest OS, but also includes virtualization specific statistics like:

  • Device / Kernel / Queue latency per datastore
  • Guest I/O usage per datastore
  • Host I/O usage per datastore

Linux systems are monitored using SNMP, and in addition to the baseline statistics detailed above, we also collect:

  • CPU usage per-process
  • Memory usage per-process
  • Swap utilization
  • Disk usage per mount point
  • Process status
  • Layer 7 application testing (DNS, FTP, Web, Database, etc)


SMNP is the standards-based way to collect data from any device that conforms to the MIB-II specification and is the default method for most infrastructure devices such as routers, switches, firewalls, load balancers, wireless gear, and Linux/Unix servers.

Our polling engine is designed to be easily extended so that new device types can be monitored quickly and easily with minimal administrative effort.

Device Configurations

Configuration Changes

You can view configuration changes in a timeline or calendar view, as well as via a list or per-device. Netreo can automatically tag interfaces to identify related port-channel or VRF interfaces and allow consolidated reporting. It works via SSH or Telnet, and is compatible with almost any command-line device, including Cisco IOS, Cisco XOS, Cisco ASA, Juniper, F5, Palo Alto, Linux configuration files, Extreme, Foundry, and more.

Configuration Managemant

Netreo’s Configuration Management feature allows you to quickly detect, alert, and report on changes to device configurations. Netreo is context-aware, so it can interpret the configurations to send you relevant context even in the face of a complex change, instantly highlighting all changes with accurate time stamps.

Netreo and Cisco

Cisco CB-QOS

Cisco’s Class-Based Quality of Service (CBQoS) is the benchmark for network-layer performance management, and Netreo will automatically discover the configuration of your CBQOS environment, giving you detailed statistics on per-queue bandwidth utilization, drops, queue depth, and traffic shaping and policing statistics. These can be automatically associated with matching configurations on other devices so you can easily compare QoS in each direction on a particular link and quickly identify misconfigurations and performance issues.


Netreo can leverage Cisco’s IP SLA features, which come pre-installed in most Cisco routers to collect data on synthetic measurements of end-to-end network performance between any two points on the network. This provides a unique remote-to-remote or full-mesh visibility into network and WAN performance at the application layer, without deploying probes or agents.


Netreo supports Cisco-style Netflow data collection, as well as sFlow and IPFIX, to monitor conversation data in almost any hardware environment. Flow data includes:

  • Host traffic volume and application mix
  • Per-application data volume
  • Conversations (to and from)
  • Per-site total data usage
  • Top servers
  • Top clients

Netreo has an advanced web monitoring capability that provides four different levels of web monitoring, depending on your requirements. All the levels are available at no extra cost, and you may use more than one level of monitoring simultaneously if desired.

Level 1

Monitoring the web server process availability

Level 2

Retrieve a page from the web server, validating the status is OK

Level 3

Retrieve a page from the web server and validate a specific string is present, protecting against possible defacement or hidden back-end errors

Level 4

Detailed, multi-part, scripted web server interaction, including detailed benchmarks of DNS, TCP, and full page load performance, including full validation of page content

Process Monitoring

Netreo can monitor the number and status of running processes, jobs, or services, and alert or report on status, CPU utilization, memory utilization, running time, idle time, and more, on Windows, Linux, Unix, Z/OS, and IBM I-Series platforms.

Additionally, Netreo can be easily extended to monitor nearly any device that can be attached to the network or Internet


Netreo can run synthetic email transactions against both local and cloud-hosted email servers to determine end-to-end connectivity and alert if inbound or outbound mail fails or takes too long to complete. It can also monitor locally hosted email systems such as Lotus Notes or Microsoft Exchange and provide detailed performance statistics for CPU / Memory / Latency, Bandwidth usage, queue size, emails per second, connected clients, information store size, and quotas exceeded.
