Principle of colored status for pipes

    When one link is down - pipe change it color to red ("Critical" condition), and doesn't matter that another one is up (examle: 10 links in one pipe, one link down - all pipe is red). Is any way to change this action to another. Example, like for Network container: when all models is red, then Network container is orange?

    If you want a container then you can put the interface models which are involved in the connections (10 connections will be 20 interface models) into the container. When a connection is down by default one port will get BAD LINK DETECTED red alarm, and another end of the interface model is suppressed. Another alternative is to create Service model that represent the heal of the entire connections between the 2 devices.

    Hello Roman,


    I suggest to use Service manager so that the service (live pipe) is affected based on the condition of various interface models added in the domain. Add the interfaces connected to both ends of the link into a single domain and map this domain to a policy and service.

    Roman, in case you're using multilink bundles, Spectrum has intelligence for these.  You might be interested in the

    Monitoring Physical and Logical Connections section of this part of the docs:





    Beyond that, this would be a good candidate to post as an idea for new functionality.
