Question:

I am trying to discover tests that are already configured on our Juniper MX480. The tests were configured by our Network Engineering team. I'm able to discover them with other software packages, but I'm unable to get Spectrum to discover them.

Initially the RTM_TestHost model's "TEST_DISCOVERY_MODE" attribute (0x4560094) was set to "Disabled". I changed it to "ReadOnly", but when I run the test discovery I get the following error:

SPC-OCC-11649: Test discovery is not implemented for this test host. 

 

Is there something I am missing when setting this up? 

Answer:

Currently Spectrum only supports the SPM Test Discovery for Cisco devices, and SystemEDG_Hosts. The Juniper devices are not supported for test discovery. 

 

The "Spectrum Performance Manager" guide - "Working with Performance Tests" - "Discover Tests in the Network" section, contains the requirements for running SPM Test Discovery, which states: 

"Considerations 

• Administrator role privileges are required to use SPM Test Discovery. 

Use a device that SPM Test Discovery supports.

See the Spectrum Performance Manager Guide - Discover Tests in the Network for more information 

This feature is not supported for all RTM_TestHosts, but rather for specific devices. 

For a list of what device/agents are supported by Spectrum Performance Manager, and what features and tests that each agent supports see the "Spectrum Performance Manager" guide - "Performance Agents and MIBs" section. The only two Agent/MIB that are listed, which Spectrum supports SPM Test Discovery for are the Cisco IOS SLAs Agent, and the CA eHealth SystemEDGE agent.
