Newbe ask how to configure switch at cricket

Hi, 

I am new using cricket 1.0.4. I configured the router without problem but when look at the switch type, it is
only 1900, 2900, 5500. How can I configure switch type 6509? any documents existed? please help. thanks.

RE: monitor switch

Dear Sir.

Please advise how to monitor switch. it looks more difficult than routers.
First router has 7500 type in place but switch doesn't have 6000 type in place. please advise how I can put it
in place.
thanks in advance.

Jing Jiang.

By popular demand, this is what I use to monitor DNS using BIND 9.  I have
included the stats file creation script and the line I use in
/etc/snmpd.conf to make it happen via snmp.  After that I have included
changes/add to my cricket configs.  

Note:  I monitor my servers under a cricket-config/Servers tree.  You must
be able to run rndc on the name server.  The stats file changed between bind
8 and 9, so this is for BIND 9 only and it has to be recent enough to
support the 'stats' call.  If you want BIND 8, check out the other BIND
monitoring scripts by Nate Campi.

---------- put into /etc/snmpd.conf on BIND host ----------
exec .1.3.6.1.4.1.2021.51 dns /usr/local/sbin/dnstat

---------- /usr/local/sbin/dnstat on BIND host ----------

Hmmmm. I see. I guess my recollection was off. Making such changes
should not be necessary.

Yeah, further proof that my recollection was wrong.

Paging Adam Meltzer or Michael Keating, white courtesy phone please...

RE: monitor switch

What happens if you use 5500 for the 6000?
I am fairly certain it will work for all the mib2 and any setup cisco
enterprise stuff.

Also google around, I am willing to bet someone has already put up a
nice defaults for you to use.

RE: monitor switch

check the cricket/util directory, there's a listswitchinterfaces script that
will generate the config files for you.  I monitor a bunch of cisco switches
from 2924's to 6513's and everything in between.

thanks

Execution times when monitoring thresholds

Hello All,

I just enabled threshold monitoring on a section of my config tree.  
I'm simply sending an email when a threshold has been reached, then 
again when it has been cleared.

Adding this additional processing has in some cases doubled execution 
times for sections of my config tree.  Are there any tricks to shorten 
the time it takes cricket to check for active thresholds, aside from 
breaking down the subtree set?

Btw, I'm running 1.0.3.  I didn't see mention of any performance 
increases in the change log for 1.0.4, but perhaps there are some?

Thanks,
Andrew Davidoff

Not really. Threshold monitoring is expensive, and the cost is in the
way the configtree is scanned at runtime. This cannot be fixed easily.

Some minor improvements were made in the configtree scanning in 1.0.4.
Depending on your architecture and setup, expect 2-30% improvement.

rrdcut help

~/cricket/util/rrdcut -starttime '1 March 2003 17:00' -endtime '1 March\
2003 18:00:00' fastethernet13.rrd

I issue the above command and I still see a spike for March 1st at
17:30. I delete the cricket cache and the browsers cache so I know that
is not the cause. I see the file old created for the rrd in question as
well.

rrdtool-1.0.45-1
perl-5.8.0-88.3
RH9

Any idea where I am going wrong?

Thanks,
Ted

where is the 'mad dictionary' ??

Hi

could not find the map dictionary.
It is not included in "The Cricket Reference Guide"

Where could I find it ?

Thanks for your help

Do an "rrdtool dump" on the file before and after rrdcut has run, and
use "diff" to see if rrdcut actually changed anything.

Also, a bit of a long shot, but check your timezone variables - if you're
not in the same timezone as the timezone the collector job is using,
you might be cutting data out for a different time than you think (rrdcut
always uses the local time zone)

If you still can't figure it out, let me know, I'll put some debugging
hooks into rrdcut to see if we can figure it out.
