Introduction:

This tech doc will explain how to re-evaluate the polling config on a device if it is missing a metric

 

Environment:  

2.6 through 2.8

 

Instructions:  

A REST client is required for these steps

 

Re-evaluating the polling config for a metric family on a given device can be done by going to the following URL:

 

http://{da-host}:8581/rest/devices/{deviceItemID}

 

Then use the "PUT" method with body:

 

<Device version="1.0.0">

   <MFPollConfigEvaluation>{http://im.ca.com/normalizer}NormalizedPortInfo</MFPollConfigEvaluation>

</Device>

The device polling config will be re-evaluated and NormalizedPortInfo should now show up under the dcdebug "polling configuration by ip" option

Additional Information

  • The above steps are an example to re-evaluate ports on a device.
  • The deviceItemID can be obtained by going to Administration > Data Aggregator in the UI, finding the device, and noting the "Item ID" under the Details tab
