# Cisco Cards Monitoring

Overview

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

Description

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

Requirements

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

    • ServicePilot Manager minimum version: 8.5
