Checking Link aggregation status
I'm trying to monitor a trunk between two Allied Telesis switches, but I am having some problems.
First, I have tried to find my devices (X900-24XS), but they're not in the data base. Ok, no problem, "Device profiles" and just add them using their sysObjectID. Now, how could I load the MIB, and link the device just created with its MIB?
Maybe that's not necessary, but NNM is not recognizing properly all the links (I have lldp activated) and I guess it could be a solution.
Other question, if I want to filter "Link aggregation interfaces" how do you specify the rule? Because (at least in Allied telesis) ifType is the same for static-aggregations and vlans.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance
If they support SNMP and RFC standard or even non standard MIBs its very easy.
1.First thing you need to do is create device profiles for your missing device types. Go to the configuration workspace -> device profiles and click on new. Fill in the blanks with the chassis OID(s) or just a generic profile that terminates at the vendor's entperforse ID (ie 22.214.171.124.4.1.#) for all out of the box unsupported devices.
2. Determine based on the devices' software version and type which MIBs are applicable.
3. Load the vendor specific MIBs and configure the events for the severity based on your Tier 2 support desires. (http://www.oidview.com/mibs/detail.html is where I'd go, Telesys's navigation leaves lots to be desired)
