Enhance F5 Device Support To Include Card, Power Supply, and Fan Status

Enhance F5 Device Support To Include Card, Power Supply, and Fan Status

We recently had a card fail on one of our F5s and NNMi did not detect the outage. We discovered that cards are not discovered and monitored for F5 devices. We would like to see support added for card status as well as for power supplies and fans.

Specifically from F5-BIGIP-SYSTEM-MIB

Cards/Blades:
1.3.6.1.4.1.3375.2.1.10.3.2.1.1 sysChassisSlotSlotId - The slot id in the specified cluster.
1.3.6.1.4.1.3375.2.1.10.3.2.1.2 sysChassisSlotSerialNumber - The serial number of this chassis slot.
1.3.6.1.4.1.3375.2.1.10.3.2.1.3 sysChassisSlotDown -  The state indicating whether the chassis slot is down or not.
1.3.6.1.4.1.3375.2.1.10.3.2.1.4 sysChassisSlotState - The chassis slot state

Power Supplies:
1.3.6.1.4.1.3375.2.1.3.2.2.2.1.1 sysChassisPowerSupplyIndex - The index of a power supply on the system.
1.3.6.1.4.1.3375.2.1.3.2.2.2.1.2 sysChassisPowerSupplyStatus - The status of the indexed power supply on the system., This is only supported for the platform where the sensor data is available

Fan:
1.3.6.1.4.1.3375.2.1.3.2.1.2.1.1 sysChassisFanIndex - The index of a chassis fan on the system. It identifies a
particular chassis fan.
1.3.6.1.4.1.3375.2.1.3.2.1.2.1.2 sysChassisFanStatus - The status of the indexed chassis fan on the system.,
This is only supported for the platform where the sensor data is available.

Would be great to see NNMi populate more information on the F5 Big-IP devices.

As at the moment the status and inventory information is incomplete in NNMi for F5 Big-IP devices. NA appears to have a lot more complete information available on these devices. This definitely needs to be improved, especially from a network monitoring and topology perspective too.
