Using OnPlus to monitor up/down state of interfaces on UC Router?

Recently we had an ethernet interface on a UC router that was monitored by OnPlus report issues.  Wanted to know if OnPlus is capable of monitoring up/down interface states of a Cisco 2911 router.  The end goal would be to have email alerts when this occurs.

The next goal would be to monitor certain thresholds on these interfaces as well.

Would this involve the Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI)?

Please advise.

Thanks,

At this time we don't have a monitor specific to interface status. You could enable ICMP Host monitors for the device on those interfaces. We have interface status listed as a potential future enhancement.

Thanks,

Using OnPlus to monitor up/down state of interfaces on UC Router

IPMI isn't a typical feature found on network hardware yet. It's generally found on servers that provide a Baseboard Management Controller (BMC), usually either as a daughter card or built directly onto the server mainboard, and runs independent of the OS and main CPU(s). Examples are the CIMC port on Cisco UCS servers, or the ILO ports on HP servers. IPMI can be used for many purposes, such as out-of-band monitoring of the server environmentals and hardware health, remote reboots/serial/console, SNMP trap generation, etc. OnPlus currently supports just the health monitoring parts of IPMI. For network hardware, SNMP is still typically used. Unfortunately OnPlus doesn't currently offer any SNMP-based monitors that could trigger alarms.
