Hi Netpro Team,
could you please tell if Lms can monitor and get the alert of any Linecards installed in Cisco 6500 series switches ??
If so, how it can be enabled and how to test it using the packet capture with OID to be searched ??
Kindly specify what kind of Line cards are they. LMS have DFM which continoulsy monitor the device components periodically by SNMP polling and also able to translate speific trap coming from the devices.
To see what kind of device/ Module supported, here is the device suported list for LMS 3.2
Device Supported list for LMS 4.0
Hope it helps
Yes, the modules you listed are all supported by CiscoWorks LMS. It can actively monitor their fault status (via SNMP query to the switch supervisor) as well as numerous other functions - process traps and syslog events, graphical view, configuration management and change, inventory, upgrade, etc.
Demonstration via SNMP with OID is not very illustrative, but one could perform and snmpwalk on the IP address of the supervisor. (The supervisor performs all the management fucntions of the switch, you would not and generally* cannot query other line cards directly.) The verbose snmpwalk output would have all the information that CiscoWorks parses into more usable form in its various components.
Hope this helps.
* some exceptions with services modules
Attached is a screen shot of what LMS (CiscoView component) would show you of a switch similar to what you describe.
An OID analysis will be much more obtuse, giving you output such as:
iso.22.214.171.124.126.96.36.199.2.1 = STRING: "TenGigabitEthernet1/1"
iso.188.8.131.52.184.108.40.206.2.2 = STRING: "TenGigabitEthernet1/2"
iso.220.127.116.11.18.104.22.168.2.3 = STRING: "TenGigabitEthernet1/3"
iso.22.214.171.124.126.96.36.199.2.4 = STRING: "TenGigabitEthernet1/4"
(this is very partial output of C:\Users\Administrator>C:\"Program Files (x86)"\CSCOpx\objects\jt\bin\snmpwalk -v 1 -c
This oid represents the interfaces of each module status... But i would like to know "Does Dfm notifies if any MODULE itself goes down" ?? In this case, how do we do the packetcapture for the module as a whole, in order to confirm that Lms is polling snmp from the switch for Module status rather than the individual port status...?
Hi Joseph Clarke ,
Please help me...
problem summary - We are not getting Dfm alerts when any of the module goes down in the cisco 6500 switch.
I got to know about the sysobjid as "188.8.131.52.184.108.40.206.220.127.116.11.10" from the Link " http://tools.cisco.com/Support/SNMP/do/BrowseOID.do?local=en&translate=Translate&objectInput=18.104.22.168.22.214.171.124.126.96.36.199.10#oidContent ". But i am unable to get the said sysobjid from the packet capture taken from the switch with filters as "snmp 161/162/syslog 514" etc.
Can you please help me.
I myself has searched the solution and it is that the Dfm can poll the module status via the snmp on sysobjectid.
The below link will take you to the sysobjid for the modul status of cisco switches.
The way how you will identify is to do a packet capture option available in Device center with all the ports selected(any) and run it for a cycle of 600 seconds. The OID would be 188.8.131.52.184.108.40.206.220.127.116.11.10.
