More complete documentation of the management pack can be found in the zip file, but the management pack elements are as follows:

Classes

  • Cisco Device
  • Cisco Interface
  • Cisco Power Supply
  • Cisco Fan
  • Cisco Temperature Sensor
  • Cisco Memory Pool

Groups

  • Cisco Devices
  • Cisco Ethernet Interfaces
  • Cisco Serial Interfaces

Monitors

  • Cisco Device Default GW Changed Monitor:
    Monitor that detects and alerts on changes to the device’s default gateway, as defined in the IP route table.
  • Cisco Device CPU Utilization Monitor:
    Monitor that generates an alert on high CPU utilization.
  • Cisco Interface Status Monitor:
    Monitor that generates an alert when the OperStatus for the interface is not up.  Alert is only generated when AdminStatus is up.
  • Cisco Serial Interface Flapping Monitor:
    Monitor that generates an alert when the ifResets counter for the interface increases by more than 2 in a polling cycle.
  • Cisco Interface Collisions Monitor:
    Monitor that generates an alert when the collisions reported on an interface increase by more than 25 in a polling cycle.
  • Cisco Interface Utilization Monitor:
    Monitor that generates an alert when the percentage of inbound or outbound utilization is above 85.
  • Cisco Power Supply Status:
    Monitor that generates an alert when the power supply status is not ok.
  • Cisco Fan Status Monitor:
    Monitor that generates an alert when the fan status is not ok.
  • Cisco Temperature Sensor Status Monitor:
    Monitor that generates an alert when the temperature sensor status is not ok.
  • Cisco Memory Pool Utilization Monitor:
    Monitor that generates an alert when the utilization of the memory pool is greater than 90 percent.

Rules

  • Collect Cisco CPU Utilization 5min:
    Rule that collects the average CPU load over the past five minutes for performance reporting
  • Alert on Cisco Device Rebooted:
    Rule that generates an alert when the SysUptime is less than 10 minutes, indicating a reboot
  • Collect Interface In Utilization:
    Rule that collects the percentage of inbound interface utilization for performance reporting, calculated from the change in ifInOctets in the past polling cycle and divided by the interface speed.
  • Collect Interface Out Utilization:
    Rule that collects the percentage of outbound interface utilization for performance reporting, calculated from the change in ifOutOctets in the past polling cycle and divided by the interface speed.
  • Collect Cisco Interface Collisions:
    Rule that collects the number of collisions recorded for the interface in the last polling cycle for performance reporting.
  • Collect Cisco Memory Pool Utilization:
    Rule that collects the percentage of memory pool utilization determined from the free and available bytes counters, for performance reporting
  • Collect Cisco Temperature Sensor Data:
    Rule that collects the reported temperature value of a temperature sensor for performance reporting.
