Monitoring MCU and VCS

Hi all,

We're planning to monitor  MCU and VCS-C remotely, but we have some questions about that.

Regarding to status monitoring, I know we can monitor MCU by using its API, but I want to know if there is any other way to monitor CPU load, memory usage and so on.

Is it possible to monitor the status above by SNMP?

And regarding to logging, what kind of message does MCU send if it's hardware status fails?(such as fan, voltage)

Regarding to VCS, is it also possible to monitor the status above by SNMP?

In addition, is it possible to monitor the current used call licenses?

For CPU load, memory status, fan status monitoring on TelePresence MCU series still require to use API which doesn’t support by SNMP (no corporate/private MIB available to monitoring this area).

The “device.health.query” API include cpuload, fanstatus, etc.

More detail, please refer to API guide version 2.9 available from http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/telepresence/infrastructure/mcu/api_guide/MCU_API_2-9.pdf.

Same for VCS, no MIB is available for monitoring what you are looking for.

API “xsta //application” is available to monitor system health status (fan speed, CPU temperature, voltages range, etc.).

Also API “xsta //current” is available to monitor current license utilization.

Hi Taniguchi-san,

Thank you for your prompt reply.

I understand that we can't receive information such as CPU load by using SNMP.

By the way, could you please let me know where I can find API guide for VCS?

I tried to download it on Cisco download site, but I could not find it.

Hello,

For the VCS, the status.xml file may also be used ? (https://IP/status.xml)

xStatus API information is available on VCS Admin guide.

Latest version is available from http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/telepresence/infrastructure/vcs/admin_guide/Cisco_VCS_Administrator_Guide_X7-1.pdf (page 454).

Hi Taniguchi-san,

Thank you for your information.

I couldn't find "Xstatus current" on VCS Admin guide, but I found "Xstatus resourceusage" instead.

I will use this element.

Oh, apologies for confusing you about API command.

I meant to inform "xsta //current" which pull out current resource status (quick way to search by keyword).

==========================

xsta //current

*s ResourceUsage:

     Calls:

       Traversal:

         Current: 0

       NonTraversal:

         Current: 0

     Registrations:

       Current: 0

*s/end

*s Zones:

     Searches:

      Current: 0

       CurrentDirected: 0

*s/end

==========================

Yes, "xsta resourceusage" is correct command to retrieve what you are looking fo.

==========================

xsta resou

*s ResourceUsage:

     Calls:

       Traversal:

         Current: 0

         Max: 0

         Total: 0

       NonTraversal:

         Current: 0

         Max: 0

         Total: 0

     Registrations:

       Current: 0

       Max: 0

       Total: 0

*s/end

HI ,

Can some one share the API files for the MCU as well VCS? I found the MCU API guide but I didn't find any (SOAP) API (WSDL or any)files?

Thanks,

Chaithanya
