About

This project is Zenoss extension (ZenPack) that makes it possible to model and monitor Nortel Passport, Baystack, BPS2000 and Ers Serie Switches

Requirements

Zenoss

You must first have, or install, Zenoss 3.0 or later. This ZenPack was tested against Zenoss 3.0 and Zenoss 3.2.1. You can download the free Core version of Zenoss from http://community.zenoss.org/community/download.

Installation

Normal Installation (packaged egg)

Download the NortelMon ZenPack. Copy this file to your Zenoss server and run the following commands as the zenoss user.

zenpack --install EGG File 
zenoss restart

Developer Installation (link mode)

If you wish to further develop and possibly contribute back to the HPEVAMon ZenPack you should clone the git repository, then install the ZenPack in developer mode using the following commands.

git clone git://github.com/rebelinux/ZenPacks.community.NortelMon.git 
zenpack --link --install ZenPacks.community.NortelMon
zenoss restart

Usage

You should now have Nortel device class.


/Device/Network/Switch/Nortel = Root Device Class.

 

/Device/Network/Switch/Nortel/Baystack = This Class is for legacy Nortel Switches (Tested it with BPS2000 & Baystack).

 

/Device/Network/Switch/Nortel/ERS = This Class is for new Avaya Switches (Tested it with ERS2000, ERS4000 & ERS5000).

 

/Device/Network/Switch/NortelPassport   = This Class is for Nortel Passport Switches (Tested it with ERS-1624 & ERS-8000).

 

The following elements are discovered:

  • Manufacturer Info set by Modeler (All Model).
  • PowerSupply Component (Status) (ERS & Passport Model).
  • Fan Component (Status) (ERS & Passport-8000 Model).
  • CardTable Component (Status) (Passport Model).
  • Console Port (Status) (Passport Model).
  • Vlans Table (Status) (All Model).
  • Per Port Vlan Table (Status) (All Model).
  • CPU, Memory & Temperature Performance Graph (ERS & Passport Model).
  • Stack Member Status (Status) (ERS Model).
  • Correct Network Interface Name (All Model).
  • Correct Network Interface Description (Passport Model).
  • Correct Network Interface Duplex Value (All Model).
  • Topology Table (SONMP) (All Model).

 

Transforms

 

1. If you want to disable the events "threshold of operational status exceeded:". you have two options:

 

    first option, disable the threshold on the template ethernetcsmacd_64 named opeational status.

    second option, make shure that port not used on your passport are administratively down.

 

2. Thresholds Transforms for PassportCard (optional):
