Management Workstation

A management workstation communicates with the RMON agent and collects the statistics from it.

The workstation does not have to be on the same network as the RMON agent and can manage the agent by in-band or out-of-band connections.

If you enable RMON on the switch, you can use a management workstation to review port statistics and port history, no configuration of the management workstation is necessary. However, you must use a management workstation to configure the alarm and event entries.
