QUESTION: What attribute should be used to configure a Spectrum SpectroWatch to monitor the fan status on a Cisco device?

 

ANSWER: The attribute to use depends on the mib support of the Cisco device. 

For devices that support the CISCO-STACK-MIB, the chassisFanStatus attribute id 0x11c0036, supported by the CATStackApp model associated with the device model, can be used. The CISCO-STACK-MIB defines the chassisFanStatus attribute as follows:

chassisFanStatus OBJECT-TYPE

SYNTAX INTEGER {

 other(1),

 ok(2),

 minorFault(3),

 majorFault(4)

}

ACCESS read-only

STATUS current

DESCRIPTION

"Status of the chassis fan. If the status is not ok, the value of chassisFanTestResult gives more detailed information about the fan's failure condition(s)."

::= { chassisGrp 9 }

 

For devices that support the CISCO-ENVMON-MIB, the ciscoEnvMonFanState attribute id 0x21055e, supported by the CiscoEnvMonApp model associated with the device model, can be used. The CISCO-ENVMON-MIB defines the ciscoEnvMonFanState attribute as follows:

ciscoEnvMonFanState OBJECT-TYPE

SYNTAX CiscoEnvMonState {

 normal(1),

 warning(2),

 critical(3),

 shutdown(4),

 notPresent(5),

 notFunctioning(6)

}

ACCESS read-only

STATUS current

DESCRIPTION

"The current state of the fan being instrumented."

::= { ciscoEnvMonFanStatusEntry 3 }
