Manage Backplane for Cisco ISR/ASR


I was surpised that the monitor of backplane was not working on my ISR 4321.

I did some research, and it's quite easy to have it working :

(100 * (ceqfpThroughputAvgRate / ceqfpThroughputLicensedBW))

Here I'm considering real uage against License (not Physical limit).

I can't have this collect working as objects are Counter64 and used as Unsigned64 (no delta to be done).

I think those objects are the same for most ISR/ASR models.

Some exemple values for this expression:

ceqfpThroughputAvgRate / . = Counter64: 1294715

ceqfpThroughputLicensedBW / . = Counter64: 50000000

=> 2,58943% of usage expected

# Other usefull/interesting values:

# Refresh interval of ceqfpThroughputAvgRate (set on device configuration) :

# ceqfpThroughputInterval : . = INTEGER: 300

# Threshold set on the device (for traps, but traps are bad ;-D)

# ceqfpThroughputThreshold : . = INTEGER: 95

# Status of license utilisation :

# ceqfpThroughputLevel : . = INTEGER: 1

# This object represents the current throughput level for installed throughput license.
# normal (1) - Throughput usage is normal
# warning (2) - Throughput usage has crossed the
# configured threshold limit
# exceed (3) - Throughput usage has exceeded the
# total licensed bandwidth

Finally, I'm using ceqfpThroughputLevel for now to manage my device (1:OK else NOK), as I can't work with Couters That are Unsigned in Custom Collects ... ;-/

HTH for some people, and that will be considered !!!
