Scrutinizer BOM Calculation Consideration

Post by abhirupsarkar » Fri Oct 07, 2016 4:36 am

When preparing the BOM for any scrutinizer case, should I consider only core switches & routers OR do i need to also include the access switches ?

Will be good if somebody can explain the BOM calculation process with respect to a simple network architecture having Gateway Routers, Core Switches & Access Switches.

In general, think of it as a simple star network. In the center we have a core router (Lets call it D) and around it we have three remote routers (lets call them A, B and C). If the conversations from A, B and C all go through D then you just need to turn flow on for D (core). If conversations go through any of the others (A,B or C) and don't hit D then you would need to have flow from them also. Remember that firewalls, WLC and other flow sending devices might be required points of visability in your deployment.

Give us a call and we can go through your requirements.
