disable rmon

disable rmon


Disables the collection of RMON statistics on the switch.

Syntax Description

This command has no arguments or variables.


By default, RMON is disabled. However, even in the disabled state, the switch responds to RMON queries and sets for alarms and events.

Usage Guidelines

The switch supports four out of nine groups of Ethernet RMON statistics. In a disabled state, the switch continues to respond queries of statistics. Collecting of history, alarms, and events is stopped; however, the switch still queries old data.

To view the status of RMON polling on the switch, use the show management command. The show management command displays information about the switch including the enable/disable state for RMON polling.

To view the RMON memory usage statistics for a specific memory type (for example, statistics, events, logs, history, or alarms) or for all memory types, use the following command:

show rmon memory {detail | memoryType}


The following command disables the collection of RMON statistics on the switch:

disable rmon
