iSPI QoS customised reportOpen in a New Window


We are using NNMi with performance tool iSPI ( Version 9.2x ).

We are applied QoS/CBQoS on interfaces  which are in very large amount now we want to monitor some router on which QoS is applied for this we are starting customised report generation in which we are filtered the devices of which we want to monitor with parameters such as class name, pre policy rate etc.

In customised report we are facing challenge that in report all devices are not present on some day report is blank, another day report come with few devices and some cases only limited interfaces will come in report out of large interfaces ?

Can someone help me in finding where is error ?

Please someone also tell us how values are get stored and presented in report.

Sampled Difference of counters OIDsOpen in a New Window

Dear NNMi Experts,

I' m trying to collect with mib expression a simple Interger difference between two OIDs  (OID - OID),  which are type counter64. But the result after using this expression in custom poller collection as mib variable is a difference of their counter "delta"s - not "sampled" difference  as I expected.

The Conversion Algorithm is "Numeric"

NNMi ver. 10.10

Is there any way to achive this ?

Thank You!

Capturing Interface Name or Interface Desription in NNMi 10.10Open in a New Window

Hello Experts,

I have created a new SNMP trap for capturing 'Error Disabled' status of an Interface. This alert is created to know whenever an Interface is Disabled.

We can receive this SNMP trap in NNMi, but the message text doesn't tells us the Interface Name. I tried using many $ variables, such as 1,2 as well ifname, ifdesc. However, still unable to get Interface name in the message text.

Can someone please advise us on the $ variable that can give us Interface Name in message text.

NNMi Performance during trap breezesOpen in a New Window


NNMi has always been a fantastic performer when it comes to SNMP poll-based monitoring, and the scalability of it has increased to new limits with the later versions of the product. One area that seems to be the Achilles' heel of the product, however, regards SNMP traps. As soon as a network environment starts throwing more than a "few" SNMP traps at it, it starts screaming and making a big fuzz about it, like Ronaldo on the football (soccer :) ) plane.

A chase that I seem to have been forced to make in most of my customers' NNMi environments, is the one of preventing the monitored devices from trigging NNMi's trap storm detection mechanism. Considering that there are often thousands of network devices, configured by many different divisions and people, this usually is a very time-consuming task. In real-world environments, devices do tend to throw many traps towards NNMi, in my experience.

I many cases I have had to give up on stopping such traps at the source level, and rather start filtering them out by means of trapFilter.conf in NNMi instead. This is also a very tedious task, however, as the type of traps thrown and the sources of them tend to vary a lot over time.

My question is; Is the default configuration of the trap storm detection and handling mechanism in NNMi 10.x updated to the capabilities/performance of this product today?

How are you guys dealing with trap storm issues in your NNMi environments?

Is there a way to automatically set management mode for a subcomponent, e.g. a Card or PSU?Open in a New Window

I have two situations where I would like to ignore subcomponents of devices.

I have a load of hp2620 variant switches getting onboarded, and all of them have an issue where there is a card 13 which is in an unknown state. As far as I can see, this is not a genuine issue. This generates an alert, and the node status is perpetually in "Warning". I can workaround this by manually unmanaging the card, but I would like this to be automatic any time a new device of this type is onboarded.

Any way to set the management mode based on certain criteria?

I have a similar issue with some devices getting onboarded that have two PSU slots, but due to budget are only ever going to have one PSU. This means the node status is always set to Major, which is undesirable.

I am seeing the nnmmanagementmode.ovpl tool, but currently this only supports objects of type "node" or "interface", so this won't work for me.


How nnmi works?Open in a New Window


I will be glad if anyone will clear my doubts little more . 

I am confused about how NNMi actually works ?

Please correct me if i am wrong. 

1) NNMi monitor nodes & their interfaces , faut , performance . Like if any node gets down so ut will pop up at nnmi console that this node has been down & same for any interafces goes down etc.

2) Data is sent by SNMP Agent to NNMi & NNMi generate graph through ISPI.

3) If several performance parameters threshold goes out so NNMi detects & shows it on nnmi console .

and if several theshold goes out so Traps are send from device to NNMi . 

So i am confused here that working of traps & nnmi is same in this case. 



Is it necessary to set trap in device ?

because nnmi also detects problems realted to device parameters like CPU exceeds certain value & shows in NNMi console.

In same way snmp Traps are generated when certain parameter exceeds & sends to NNMi.

I want to get cleared if i am right or wrong ?





Unable to load MIB text file to NNM 9.10Open in a New Window
