Webhosting Upgrade

I have added a new service that I am offering with my webhosting company. I have started offering colocation. This new service has started to tax some of the companies resources, so as a result modifications had to be made. The goal of the modification was to start measuring the bandwidth that each server/colocation client that is used.

In order to facilitate this change, a new border switch had to be installed. I purchased a Cisco 2924 on Ebay. The great thing about this switch is that it is a fully managed, the previous switch is classified as a web-smart switch, which simply means that it has a web interface. The new switch allows my monitoring server to poll the switch and store usage information about each port.
