Interface operational state with NSO

RichardD2

Level 1

Hi,

We have a need to determine if a particular interface is down (not admin-down, but operationally) with NSO.

It seems trivial to detect admin-state like this, but oddly, oper-status isn't available.

The goal would to use this state in a service template and make logic decisions based on it.

thanks

show devices device mydevice live-status interfaces-state interface TenGigE0/0/0/0 admin-status admin-status up 
show devices device mydevice live-status interfaces-state interface TenGigE0/0/0/0 oper-status % No entries found.

If nothing else works, and if the NED is CLI perhaps do exec

admin@ncs(config)# devices device rtr live-status cisco-ios-xr-stats:exec any "command you want"

The output would have to be parsed though as it will be a string I think.

This two threads do it in python:

Slight modification to the above, gives us:

admin@nso-lab(config)# devices device mydevice live-status exec any "show interface TenGigE 0/0/0/0" | include line
TenGigE0/0/0/0 is up, line protocol is up

We'll check out the python posts, much appreciated.

It looks like there might be a mismatch between the device output and what the NED expects. In /cisco-iosxr-cli-7.39/src/gili/if:interfaces-state_interface.gili you see that the NED expects "Line protocol is" with an uppercase L, while the output of the device is "line protocol is" with a lowercase l. You can try to correct it and recompile the NED.

@hazad - You nailed it, that was exactly the issue. Should I open a TAC case and provide this info, or another approach?

thanks
