Netsight trends

Hello,

I am using Netsight 6.3.0.168 and I am trying to find a way to create some trend by using MIBs.

For example I need to monitor the CPU utilization of all Switches and show it in a monthly trend. The same also for some port bandwidth or utilization percentage in switches.

However, I could not find a way to schedule some MIB get (with certain frequency) working in background.

 

Is that possible with this Netsight version? 

Thanks

Andrea

Hi Andrea, I believe you would need to upgrade to the NetSight(NMS) license (one step above the NMS-Base license).

Hello,

 

If you right click the device → collect statistics the XMC server will automatically collected CPU utilization stats for all switches that you’ve enabled statistic collection on. 

 

Then there are some canned reports like “Top Devices by Resource”.

 

You could also go into the Custom reports and generate reports based on CPU utilization. The key is you need device statistics collection to start collecting the data. It will collect in 15 minute intervals.

Hi Ryan,

Custom reports is just what I would need choosing any MIB information like Port bandwidth utilization, Port Percentage Utilization, CPU Utilization, System temperature, etc.

 

Is it possible to choose what MIB Information I can get for the trend?

Also, do I need to enable statistics collection on the device? What is the command?

 

Thanks

Right click the device → More actions → Collect Device Statistics

 

You cannot choose which MIB information is collected. We will collect certain information based on device type but that information can not be customized.

Hi Ryan

 

I cannot find the way to enable the collection of device statistics. I found out that my license is NMS-BASE-50…..

The BASE licenses may be limited to some functions only.

Should I upgrade the license?

 

Thanks

i believe the base license has access to this feature, however in 6.3 it’s likely located in a different place. There have been very significant UI changes since 6.3. 

 

6.3 is also no longer supported. I would recommend getting up to 8.3.3.11 or 8.4.4. 

 

6.3 was early in the development process for the statistics collection improvements. 

 

Thanks

Hi Ryan

With our license (NMS-BASE-XX) I could upgrade just up to version 7.1.3.25, but still there was no option to enable the Device Statistic Collection. After that I tested this version with an Evaluation License and the option appeared.

Therefore, I could retrieve some report.

Do you know what license I would need to enable the Device Statistic Collection (and, in addition also update the version to 8.3.3.11 or 8.4.4)?

Thanks
