NNMi 9.1 Enterasys N7 per CPU utilization

Ricardo Jorge

     During a PoC in a customer in Brazil I've found a problem reading CPU utilization from an Enterasys N7 switch.

     The environment is :

     1 - Entrasys N7 switch firmware 7.21

     2 - NNMi 9.10 with iSPI for Performance  9.10 Windows 2008 R2 Standard.

     The problem is related to the index used to read each CPU utilization ( there are 6 in the chassi ). Customer has 8 N7 chassis.

     The MIB excerpt is as follow :

EtsysResourceCpuEntry ::=
         etsysResourceCpuId             Unsigned32,
         etsysResourceCpuLoad5sec       ResourceUtilization,
         etsysResourceCpuLoad1min       ResourceUtilization,
         etsysResourceCpuLoad5min       ResourceUtilization

     Object "etsysResourceCpuId" is *not* available, I mean NNMi can not access it. This prevents me to access each CPU utilization information. I can read CPU utilization from all 6 CPUs.

     Searching the Internet I've found that people running Open Source tools use the full OID to access each CPU information. One OID for each CPU.

     Question :

     1 - Is it possible to configure NNMi 9.1 to read the full OID instead of create an index ( use etsysResourceCpuId ) to select each CPU ?

     2 - Anyone with NNMi + Enterasys N7 experience ? Specially collecting CPU, Memory and Disk usage from Enterasys N7 ?

     Thank you for your atention. Regards,
