Name: Name: Juniper Virtual Chassis_lmsupport Display Name: Displayed As: Juniper Virtual Chassis_HW Info Locator Code: YWWE74 I modified (actually, I had help from Support) the datasource Juniper Virtual Chassis- so that values that originally were displayed in the UI as only descriptive text on per-instance mouse-overs are now presented as properties. Juniper switches present difficulty to the datasource Device_Component_Inventory; this modification allows a single-step way to associate with stand alone switches and virtual chassis while getting inventory data on a per-member basis instead of on just whichever switch happens to be the virtual chassis routing-engine at the time of polling. And it comes with the huge bonus that using ILP as the instance grouping method produces a great presentation in the UI. It collects from jnxVirtualChassisMemberEntry (there are other values there that may be of interest to you, so walk it) for each member of a virtual chassis, but it does require that you enter any specific info you would like to see into the command <set...member n location [any desirable text value]>. We chose to enter building and room location along with asset tag number and it is stored by the property auto.vcmemberassetinfo Also, you will need to configure even standalone switches as a virtual chassis <set...member 0 location [any desired value]> The Descriptive text in the original datasource is not reportable, but properties are, and this lets us create a great report using the Device Inventory report. It gives us device name building, room number and asset tag for each individual switch in a virtual chassis serial number for each individual switch in a virtual chassis HW model info for each individual switch in a virtual chassis junos version for each individual switch in a virtual chassis Special thanks to Support Engineer Johnny Y for doing most of the heavy lifting (after recognizing that I was trying to pound a screw in with a hammer), all the other Support Engineers who patiently answered my questions in a series of cases, and to CSM Kyle for kickstarting me.
Name: Juniper Router Inventory Displayed As: Juniper MX and SRX HW Info Locator Code: RJEAXH I cloned the Device_Component_Inventory and modified it to work with Juniper MX and SRX devices, since D_C_I didn't work with Juniper OoB. There is more information available within Juniper's jnxBoxAnatomy if you'd like to further modify, but serial number and box description were most valuable to us. We added snmp sysContact, which is how/where we've chosen to record Building Location and Asset Tag number in a router's local configuration file (we wanted to reserve snmp sysLocation for future use) and represent that with a property called "auto.assetinfo" and then we added the system.sysinfo property. We've used this very effectively with the Device Inventory Report, which gives us inventory with the following: Device Name (in Logicmonitor) Serial number Building, Room number, asset tag HW Description Junos version Thanks very much to my CSM Kyle and to each of the Support Engineers who provided answers to questions that helped me put this together.
This datasource does not provide any monitoring or alerting data. Once applied, it will gather information pertaining to each drac-enabled blade in the Chassis. This is useful for inventory purposes. *Note - in order to use this datasource, you must assign the CMC login credentials to the CMC using the properties idrac.user and idrac.pass. Remember that both the username and the password are case-sensitive. Using the root account is NOT recommended. W96MYH
We often get requests from our clients that say "Show me everything you're monitoring for me". I think it makes sense as a new standard report type, although i understand it will be extremely difficult for Logicmonitor to create. Nonetheless, Here would be my suggestion for this: In some ways, organized like the UI For each host, a list of all the datasources that apply Option to include the host properties in a table format. For each datasource that applies to the host: Name of Datasource List of instances/instance groups Datapoint List, with Thresholds Somehow show overridden thresholds this is the key, but also the challenge It may simply be too large of a task with too little support, but by posting it here, i hope that many people share this need, so that we can get it accepted for the roadmap.
