# HP Comware Switch

Overview

This package is designed to monitor an HP Comware switch using SNMP.

Description

This package automatically configures the ServicePilot Manager to monitor an HP Comware switch based on an SNMP collection. The statistics gathered in this way include:

  • Network: Ping Response Time and Interfaces activity
  • System: CPU, Memory and Temperature
  • Stack Members: Status, Role, CPU, Memory and Temperature
  • Environment: Power Supply and Fan sensors

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 HP Comware
    • ICMP/Echo Request (Ping): Between ServicePilot Manager and HP Comware
    • UDP/162 (SNMP Trap): (Optional) Between HP Comware and ServicePilot Agent
  • ServicePilot Requirements

    • ServicePilot Manager minimum version: 8.5

Installation

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

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-hp-comware-switch 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.

Key field notes

In the Monitoring Policies tab, specify the policy or policies to apply to the resource

  1. Basic Parameters tab:

    1. IP address/FQDN: The FQDN or IP address of the HP Comware switch, as resolvable by the machine on which ServicePilot Manager is running.
  2. Interfaces tab:

    1. Auto-Discover Interfaces: Enable to automatically discover network interfaces.
    2. Use Interface filter instead of Addressing Information: When disabled, only network interfaces with IP addresses will be included. When enabled interfaces are included or excluded based on the subsequent fields.
    3. {Optional} Ignored Interfaces names separated with '|': Include all interfaces discovered except for those matching this | separated list. The match will be done against short and long interface names and interface aliases with * and ? wildcards. Objects discovered might have characters replaced when added but this match will be done against the original interface name.
    4. {Optional} Allowed Interfaces names separated with '|': Only include interfaces discovered matching this | separated list. The match will be done against short and long interface names and interface aliases with * and ? wildcards. Objects discovered might have characters replaced when added but this match will be done against the original interface name.
    5. {Optional} Custom interface speed 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, an outgoing speed and an incoming speed, comma separated.

      Note: Each element of the interface lists is a regular expression as defined by Like Operator (Visual Basic)

  3. Monitoring Options tab:

    1. ICMP Ping: Include an object to measure ICMP Echo reachability and response time.
    2. Stack Members: For stacked switches, enable this option to stack member information.
    3. Fans: Check to enable fan monitoring.
    4. Power Supplies: Check to enable power supply monitoring.
