How to monitor CISCO CARDS network devices


What are Cisco Cards?

This package aims at monitoring Cisco cards modules installed on a Cisco Catalyst System using SNMP.

Cisco Cards Monitoring

This package automatically configures the ServicePilot Agent to collect statistics from the Cisco cards modules in term of state and self test result code on which SNMP Service has been configured.

The monitoring statistics gathered in this way include:

  • Cisco Card Table Interpreted State
  • Cisco Card Table Test Result Code
  • Cisco Card Table Number of Ports


  • SNMP Service must be configured (Security: read-only SNMP community and allowed host must be set) and started on the targeted machine.

  • Network Flows - It is necessary to ensure network connectivity between ServicePilot and the monitored device.

    • UDP/161 (SNMP): Between ServicePilot Agent and Cisco Catalyst System
    • UDP/162 (SNMP Trap): (Optional) Between Cisco Catalyst System and ServicePilot Agent


Before adding a resource to monitor, make certain that all pre-requisites are in place.

Follow the documentation to add a resource to ServicePilot.
