Network Routers and Switches observability quickstart contains 6 alerts. These alerts detect changes in key performance metrics. Integrate these alerts with your favorite tools (like Slack, PagerDuty, etc.) and New Relic will let you know when something needs your attention.

Average CPU % Used Violation

This alert will trigger when a router or switch has more than 90% CPU utilization.

Average Memory % Used Violation

This alert will trigger when a router or switch has more than 90% memory utilization.

Average Transmit % Used Violation

This alert will trigger when a router or switch interface has more than 90% transmit utilization. You may want to filter this to only alert for specific interface names or descriptions.

Ping Packet Loss % Violation

This alert will trigger when a router or switch fails to respond to at least 10% of the pings sent by ktranslate. This indicates problems on the device or in the network between the container and the device.

Ping Response Time Violation

This alert will trigger when a router or switch takes more than 500 ms to respond to a ping. This requires that ping based checks are enabled in the ktranslate config using the response_time or ping_only options.

Uplink Interface Down Violation

This alert will trigger when a router or switch interface with the word "uplink" in the description reports as being down. You can change the NRQL to filter to other naming conventions.
