We are currently in the process of deploying a large number of Cisco\n831 routers for use at our remote VPN sites. As part of our testing\nwe are evaluating Cisco Resource Management Essentials (RME) and VPN\nMonitor. We have a couple questions concerning these two management\npieces.\n\n1) We would like to use Resource Management Essentials in deploying\nIOS upgrades and large scale configuration changes (500 routers).\nDoes anyone have any previous experience on the functionality or any\nproblems using RME?\n\n2) What are some of the benefits of using the VPN Monitor besides\ntunnel health? Is there any added functionality that cannot be\nqueried using basic IPSEC MIBs? Has anyone used this application with\n500 VPN routers or more?
