For equipment like SOHO networking devices (think Linksys/Netgear/etc) or other devices that don't really have SNMP support...is there a way to figure out port utilization % and other stats like packets/sec, etc.?
I was thinking maybe something like port mirroring might work but not sure how I'd accomplish this if I only had the single Linksys router or similar that didn't support port mirroring.
I don't want to have something sitting between the router/switch and the "other end" either...I would rather it be "non-intrusive" from a physical standpoint.
So, is there any way I can accomplish this?
