Device Layer

ThousandEyes' device-layer monitoring uses Enterprise Agents to poll your network devices using the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).

The Enterprise Agents must complete an initial device discovery process prior to monitoring the desired devices. So the basic steps are as follows:

  1. Configure credentials for one or more devices, so that they can be discovered.
  2. Launch a one-time or scheduled device discovery action.
  3. View the results of the device discovery.
  4. Once you have set up devices for monitoring, view the data from those devices.
