10 Gig Interfaces?

I just ran genRtrConfig against a Cisco CRS-1.  It didn't pick up the 
10 GigE interfaces at all (according to the IANAIfType-MIB they should 
be ethernetCsmacd) and for the OC192 POS interfaces it spat out

target POS0_0_0_1
    interface-name       = POS0/0/0/1
    long-desc            = "edited<BR>10.0.0.1<BR>4295.0 MBits/s ppp"
    order                = 883
    rrd-max              = 4294967295
    rrd-max-octets       = 536870911
    short-desc           = OC192-W3-5-13-NLR29
    snmp-version         = 2c
    target-type          = standard-interface-hc

The value of rrd-max is suspiciously 2**32-1.  Are we looking at a 
limitation in cricket, genRtrConfig or rrdtool?

Thanks,

Michael

Re: 10 Gig Interfaces?

Well, POS and 10GigE interfaces are NOT the same :-) I have no problem with 
GenRtrConfig picking up the 4 port 10Gb/s module on a 6500 with SUP720 DFC3... but 
they are NOT POS interfaces but real ethernet ones.

But, are you saying it isn't working at all? Although our 10GigE's are reported as 
4295Mb/s they collect no problem... and I have collected graphs at above 9Gb/s in a 
test environment.

Re: 10 Gig Interfaces?

I see the same behavior as you do with 10GigE interfaces on a 6500 
(just like POS on a CRS-1).  GenRtrConfig just isn't finding the 10GigE 
interfaces on the CRS-1.

The documentation doesn't appear to say anything about rrd-max being 
limited to 32 bits, but I suspect that to be the case.  Of course, the 
number of sites which have reason to care isn't that large (yet).

Keeping Target Files Up to Date??

Hello All,

Long time listener, first time poster.

I am trying to figure out the best way to keep my target files up to date as new ports get enabled or port names
change. 

I thought about writting a script that read the original genRtrconfig settings out of the targets files and
re-running the script on a daily basis, but I figured I see if anyone has already done anything before I
re-invent the wheel.

Thanks in advance!!

Router temp in Fahrenheit??

Another question, has anymore figured out how to get the temperature of a router in Fahrenheit instead of Celsius?

There is an enhanced genRtrConfig which can be run from cron to update
targets, look for genCatConfig or genAutoConfig.  The home page at
http://www.acktomic.com/cricket/cricket.htm doesn't seem to be up
right now?

genAutoConfig didn't fit my needs, so  I went with a simple perl
script which runs from cron, pulls a fresh copy of the targets, then
does a 'diff' (ignoring the timestamp).  If anything has changed it
emails the diff output and recompiles the tree.

With either approach, it helps a lot to keep unused ports in
'shutdown'.  This is a good policy in general, for security, etc.

Kevin Kadow

(P.S. I also made a few small edits to genRtrConfig_1_5_1, I should
probably consider submitting them to the maintainer.)

Tracking interface state on a Cisco switch?

Does there already exist enhancements to switch-ports to track
interface state (Line protocol on Interface X) on a Cisco 10/100/1000
switch?

Specifically I'd like to record link up/down, speed, and duplex.
Since these are binary values they don't make all that much sense in a
graph, though it would be interesting to assign arbitrary numeric
values to the various states (0=down, 1=10/half, 2=10/full,
4=100/half, 8=100/full, etc).

I'm hoping somebody has already worked through this so I can avoid
re-inventing the wheel.

Thanks,

Kevin Kadow

You can also check out metagen in the Cricket contrib area.
(http://cricket.sourceforge.net/contrib/)  It basically lets you
regenerate large subtrees of your config relatively quickly via cron.

Re: Router temp in Fahrenheit??

I do that conversion on several devices.

Collect the data in C, but then use this in the graph section:

######################################################################
# Graph Section

graph MeasureTemp
        scale=9,5,/,*,32,+

Obviously MeasureTemp was my datasource.
