ALCATEL-OMNISTACK network technology integration

ServicePilot network-alcatel-omnistack

# Alcatel OmniStack


This package is designed to monitor an Alcatel OmniStack device. Statistics are collected for a single device , in order to provide an overall view of the status and health of the different system and board components of the device. Statistics are also collected for the different interfaces present on the device. Interfaces are automatically discovered and added to the monitoring environment.


This package automatically configures the ServicePilot Manager to collect statistics from the Alcatel OmniStack based on SNMP collection. The different statistics gathered this way include:

  • System: CPU and Memory
  • Board: power supplies and fans status, temperature, and sensor status
  • Interfaces (optional): traffic, load, volumes and errors

The statistics are stored in order to provide advanced dashboards presenting CPU, Memory and Interface information over time which allow for comprehensive diagnostics of problems.


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

  • Network Flows - It is is necessary to ensure network connectivity between ServicePilot and the monitored device. In case of a network infrastructure using a firewall, all the ports below must be opened:

    • UDP/161 (SNMP): Between Alcatel OmniStack and ServicePilot Manager
  • ServicePilot Requirements

    • ServicePilot Manager minimum version: 8.5


Before adding a resource to monitor, make certain that all pre-requisites are in place and if a ServicePilot Agent is required, that it is communicating correctly with the ServicePilot Manager.

Add resource using Views Configuration web interface

  1. As an administrative user of ServicePilot, open the ServicePilot web interface.
  2. Navigate to Administration. The Configuration > Views web page will open.
  3. Click on the view in which to place the new resource in the Views hierarchy on the left of the interface. The View editor section will show the existing view contents.
  4. From the Packages list on the right of the interface, click and drag the network-alcatel-omnistack package into the View editor and let go.
  5. The Resource properties dialog box will open to allow resource configuration.
  6. Click OK to close the Resource properties dialog box. Note that the dialog box will not close if required parameters are not set.
  7. Click Save to apply the new resource to ServicePilot configuration.


This package will consume:

- 2 licence objects per provisioned resource- 1 licence object per interface monitored (per provisioned resource)

Key field notes

In the Monitoring Policies tab, specify the SNMP policy to apply to the resource. This policy must match the SNMP configuration (community and port) of the target device. Other policies e.g. Alert/Threshold can also be applied as needed.

  1. Basic Parameters tab :

    1. IP address: Specify the IP address of the Alcatel OmniStack, as resolvable by the machine on which ServicePilot is running.
  2. Interfaces tab:

    1. Interfaces: tick to get details about interfaces.
    2. Use Interface filter instead of Addressing Information: Set it on to get statistics for a specified list on interfaces only. Set it off to get statistics for all available interfaces.
    3. {Optional} Ignored Interfaces names separated with '|': Specify name(s) of interface(s) NOT to be monitored
    4. {Optional} Allowed Interfaces names separated with '|': Specify name(s) of interface(s) to be monitored
    5. {Optional} Custom interface speeds (bps) separated with '|': For network interfaces that do not report correct maximum interface speeds in bps or if the speed reported does not reflect known downstream bottlenecks, a | separated list of speed overrides can be included here. Each element of the list consists of an SNMP interface table index or name or alias, an outgoing speed and an incoming speed, comma separated.

      Note: Each element name in the list is a regular expression as defined by Like Operator (Visual Basic)


MIBs Used:

  • MIB-II
