  • 1.  Check Port Status

    Posted Nov 28, 2016 10:41 AM


    We want to monitor the port status in out brocade switch.

    The idea is to compare between AdminStatus and the OperStatus, checking for open ports which are down for any reason.

    I tried to find a solution in snmp collector, but i dont find those metrics in the monitor options.

    Any idea how can we monitor it ?

    In the snmpcollector , at the device interface level take a look at the below monitors and enable them

    Thanks, but this not what we are looking .


    We want to compare both status and in case that are not even to send alarm.


    for example we have 2 port :

    1 - admin status is disable and operatorstatus is also disable - if operatorstatus  become enable from any reason we want to get notification.

    2. admin status is enable and operatorstatus is also enabled - in case of operatorstatus become disable - we want to get notification.


    right now we need to configure each port according to the status in the switch and this is not what are we looking for.

    Dear Asaf, 


    you want to create a condition featuring two different OID's (adminstatus  and operstatus) and only receive an alarm if the operstatus is different to the admin status. I do not see how this could be done at this moment, at least not with the template configuration available in snmpcollector at this moment.


    The Interface_traffic probe does not allow this either. Maybe you can log an idea for that? 


    Kind Regards,
