scheduled requesting of FlexView "LLDP Remote Systems"


Userlevel 6
is it possible to run scheduled (one time every night) a existing FlexView called "LLDP Remote Systems" on several switches ?

If i run it manually on several switches it takes too long for waiting. So i want it running once per night and getting the result next workday very fast (because the information is prefetched).

Is that possible ?

the flexview can be run in web browser. login to oneview and right click on set of devices, display flexview in new window => you will get URL

I would use cron and schedule the "wget". you can have HTML with the required information updated per schedule.

Hi Pala,

this will not work because you need a valid HTML session (cookies, session id, etc) - this will avoid that a wget will work.

And the second reason is that i have to program a script that do all this. That is to cumbersome.

I have hoped that the Report Scheduler within OneView can do that for me - but it seems this not possible!

the url is quite easy =
code:

[url=https://EMC:8443/OneView/view/flexview?fv=Interface%20Summary&target=192.168.10.249,192.168.10.250]https://EMC:8443/OneView/view/flexvie...[/url] but you are right the wget does not do the job 😞 Another way can be use Console (java client) and configure the flexview to run periodically. you can also configure the export directory. Agree also cumbersome. Regards Zdenek
