    Hello Guys.

     

    Please I'm having challenges discovering power devices on nimsoft. I first created a template, discovered the devices on dcim administrator but when i discover the device on UMP it doesn't generate any metrics for the devices.

    Running UIM 8.2.

     

    Thanks

    Hi steelzik1

     

    we would first need to understand if the devices simply have no QOS being reported for them, or if there is no metrics visible in the USM due to some other issue.

     

    Can you create a Performance Report via Performance Report Designer for these devices? And do you see data there? What data do you expect to see?

     

    Kind Regards,

    Hello Martin.

     

    Thanks for the response.

    Can you create a Performance Report via Performance Report Designer for these devices? yes i can see information such as battery temperature,battery current,battery time remaining and battery charging status.

    And when I create a template on DCIM administrator I'm able to pick these informations.

    Also on DCIM probe used for monitoring power devices I can see that the power devices are in the probe.

    But the challenge is the customer needs it to display on UMP dashboard, where is triggers alarm of high temperature, low voltage input and battery status. Just the way alarms are displayed for servers and network devices.

     

    Thanks & Regards

    Hello.

    Device discovery is not responsible for metrics collection for the device.

    As Martin Fink said, it depends on which monitoring (QOS producing) probes are working with the device.

    Hello Yu

     

    Initially i used the power probe but never got any information regarding the devices been added.

    Now am using the dcim probe after which i run a discovery wizard using snmp.
