What is the best method for monitoring/reporting on a nationwide WAN without using SNMP?
The best method would be an active-probing mechanism that regularly samples the end-to-end network path non-intrusively. This will provide an application-specific view of the behaviors that define application performance without a priori knowledge of what is on the path, or having to own it yourself.
