we are searching for an good software, to manage our Cisco SG-Series Switches and are actually in an evaluation with Cisco FindIT. The software looks promissing so far, but I can't get rid of three questions. :-)
1) How can I delete devices in the Probe, which are not offline? The "Delete-Button" is greyed out.
2) How can the SNMP frequency can be changed, so that FindIT is not connection to our Switches each few minutes. The high cpu load let the switches go into a warning state multiple times a hour, which is caused by the FindIT-Probe.
3) Will it be possible to get the full list in the port configuration in the future? I'm missing the visibility of the port description and the possibilty to change it. I know how to do it via WEB or SSH, but it would be great, if some simple Tasks could be done in FindIT directly. :-)
thanks for the quick and welcome reply!
I'm happy to get in touch with a person directly involved into FindIT. :-)
I didn't thought about the re-discovery of deleted devices. So that is a good point. I thought about this possibility more for testing purposes like auto-deployment of new firmwares and configs. So like: Deleting present devices and re-discover them again as "new", to see if the changes are applied successful.
As we got some SG250 and SG500-Switches with stacks, the port count is indeed quite high. Therefore it might be very helpful to tame the SNMP polling. As a idea, maybe it is possible to create SNMP-Profiles for Switches/Groups or to set the interval right in the SNMP credentials dialog.
Thanks for your effort so far, Dave!
