Cisco Power Alerts



I have a Cisco ASR1000 w/ 'Sensor Health Other' Alerts coming in for 2 different channels, they are listed as 7001 and 7002.

The range available is for 0-4995 mV. The actual values seem to fluctuate and we as far as I can tell there is no operational issue. I'm inclined to think this is either a sensor that I don't need or something that needs adjusted. I'm just not sure if anyone has seen this type of sensor and what they did, or what the actual alert ranges should be set to? This particular router is managed by the service provider and we were given SNMP access to it for monitoring. so my visibility into the device is limited.

I'm flirting with the idea of just nixing the sensor, or really opening up the lower and upper limits.

For this sensor type we are using the thresholds defined by Cisco. Unfortunately we cannot give you any appraisal for the relevance of these thresholds. If you want more detailed information, you might want to get in contact with Cisco.

If you want to adjust the thresholds for all sensors of this type, you can use the multi edit feature.

Best regards
