    Re: New IP-SLA Enumeration/Monitoring ZenPack

    I wonder though if this issue with $ZENHOME is just it not getting set

    in the Zenoss's users path?

    Re: New IP-SLA Enumeration/Monitoring ZenPack
    perhaps you're right..
    I've changed the $ZENOHOME at /Devices/Network/IPSLA/Templates/New_SLA to the install path of my Zenoss...
    but still no graphs

    i'm trying to get icmp-echo test working on my cisco switch. This device configuration is folowing below:

    ip sla 100
    icmp-echo 172.16.148.23 source-ip 10.1.2.85
    timeout 100
    threshold 100
    tag TEST-IP-SLA
    frequency 30
    ip sla schedule 100 life forever start-time now

    Re: New IP-SLA Enumeration/Monitoring ZenPack

    Be sure the $ZENHOME is replaced with the correct path.

     

    Also be sure to cpan install Threads::Exit and cpan install thread::shared

     

    These are required for the perl scripts to work.

     

    Additionally, on some installs, you may neet to create  $ZENHOME/perf/Devices/{device name}/ipSLAs/ directory owned by zenoss:zenoss

    Re: New IP-SLA Enumeration/Monitoring ZenPack
    I agree. Its odd. Some systems report $ZENHOME correctly when used in command templates, some do not. All my CentOS 5.3 systems do work using $ZENHOME except a recently installed one. The box was installed using the same kickstart file as the others, so I am truely unsure of the differnce. Uses must change $ZENHOME to respective Zenoss install directory like /opt/zenoss/ or /usr/zenoss/zenoss/ etc.

    Re: New IP-SLA Enumeration/Monitoring ZenPack

    i've double checked this and everything is fine.

     

    I've noticed that while i'm trying to test SLA from a Cisco router Zenoss prints RRDtool grid for me, but there are nothing on it.

    And when i try to configure a switch i don't get even a grid for the graph

     

     

    bash-3.2# ls -lah gate/ipSLAs/
    total 12K
    drwxr-xr-x 3 zenoss zenoss 4.0K 2009-09-29 17:25 .
    drwxr-x--- 4 zenoss zenoss 4.0K 2009-09-29 17:21 ..
    drwxr-x--- 2 zenoss zenoss 4.0K 2009-09-29 17:25 SLA

     

    bash-3.2# ls -lah sw/ipSLAs/
    total 8.0K
    drwxr-xr-x 2 zenoss zenoss 4.0K 2009-09-29 13:52 .
    drwxr-x--- 4 zenoss zenoss 4.0K 2009-09-29 13:52 ..

    owh, by the way.. can i get some more information to a particular graph? for example, packet loss?

    Re: New IP-SLA Enumeration/Monitoring ZenPack

    Yes, any data that can be polled can be added to graphs. Let me know what you want and I'll add it to the next release.

     

    Two things: First, be sure all SLA's have their tag set to something unique. Second, besure to be URI friendly- no colon, quotes or other special characters. Remodel and post your results. Screen shots can help me diagnose too.

     

    Thanks,

    Re: New IP-SLA Enumeration/Monitoring ZenPack

    Thank you for your last tip!

    When i changed tags of each SLA tests everything went fine. So now i have 4 test simultaneosly running and graphing. Thanks a lot for your support!

     

    As for me it will be great if there were also packet loss and jitter measurements (i believe all ISP network engineers will agree with this )

    hackman238, hi! It's me again. One more question.

    Why there is "seconds" on the Y axis? Shoudn't there be miliseconds? Any suggestions how to fix this?

    My image atached to this post.

    Thanks in advance!

    Re: New IP-SLA Enumeration/Monitoring ZenPack

    The Y-Axis label is an artifact of my strange way of looking at things. :-) When I say Seconds, I mean all types of seconds (us, ms, s, etc). You're correct though, the base number is in milliseconds. You can change this in the graph definitions under each template in the 'Units' area. This is corrected in the new version.

     

    Thanks for all the feed back!

    Hi

     

    I changed the cycle time for each sla and it stoped graphing?

     

    The graph is still there but no data.

     

    Anyone got a ide?

    Where did you change the cycle time? What is the new cycle time?

    Re: New IP-SLA Enumeration/Monitoring ZenPack

    I changed it under the template, for each data source.

     

    Changed first to 300 sec and then to 150 and now Im at 60 sec.

     

    30 sec was the default value.

     

    Should I have changed somewhere else?
