Temperature polling and baselining of devices

Temperature polling and baselining of devices

Currently NNMi is able to poll the "Temperature Sensor Status" when "Physical Sensor Fault Polling" is enabled. This allows for incident generation if a node is reporting a node-defined temperature threshold has been breached. It does however not allow for someone to actually graph the temperature sensor values.

I would like to propose that the measured temperature values are collected and reported to NPS if "Physical Sensor Performance Polling" is enabled. This would allow people to generate and analyze graphs on temperature sensors without creating and exporting all kinds of different custom polls. Since temperature polling is mostly done using private MIB's, this should be included in the device drivers. Some Cisco devices might use the CiscoEnvMon MIB and others might use another OID for getting the temperature value.

If these values were also added to the baselining calculation, operators would be able to detect deviations from normal temperatures and possibly react to those proactively, before critical thresholds are breached.
