Re: informtion about switches, we need views

Hi ankita,

 

Most information should be discovered – however this depends on the switch and which information are exposed by the switch itself.

If you provide more details about the switch (vendor, version) we can have a deeper look.

Regarding port utilization please see the answer here: “port utilization details of a switch

 

examples of hardware modules:

  • Rack
  • hardware board
  • ports

regards,

DCV

Re: informtion about switches, we need views

Cisco provides a broad variety of switches. Therefore there are different options depending on the model you're looking for:


* Layer2 Topology by Shell Job
  This job reports Layer2 related data for Cisco Nexus 1000, 5000, and 7000 series of switches.

Discovery Flow
The discovery flow for the Layer2 Topology by Shell job is as follows:

1. Get interface details using the command sh int.
2. Get configured vlans and ports using the command sh vlan all-ports.
3. Get the list of connected devices using the command sh cdp neighbours detail.
(see Cisco Nexus Command Reference)

(From: Discovery and Integrations Content Guide - Discovery Modules
Chapter 74: Layer2 Discovery)

 

* CiscoWorks Layer 2 Adapter or

* CiscoWorks NetDevices Adapter

Discovered CITs
- Composition
- Containment
- HardwareBoard
- Interface
- IpAddress
- IpSubnet
- Layer2Connection
- Membership
- Node
- PhysicalPort
- Realization
- VLAN

Re: informtion about switches, we need views

Hi Ankita,

The Prerequisites for “Layer2 Topology by Shell Job” are:

  • Set up SSH protocol credentials (more details can be found on p 1089 “Discovery and Integrations Content Guide – Discovery Modules” à Software Version: Content Pack 18.00 (CP18)

For the CiscoWorks integration the details can be found on: p52/53 “Universal Discovery Content Guide - Third Party Integrations” à Software Version: Content Pack 18.00 (CP18)

Hope this helps,

DCV
