Cisco Nexus 7000 System Health Limits Wrong



Hallo Bei unseren Cisco Nexus 7000 werden bei den Cisco System Health Sensoren nur die "unteren Grenzwerte für Fehler" erkannt, jedoch mit den Wert des "Oberen Grenzwertes für Fehler" befüllt. (Falsche Zuordnung) Ist das was bekannt?

Danke und Gruss Stefan

Cisco NX-OS(tm) n7000, Software (n7000-s1-dk9), Version 6.2(10) PRTG

Hello Stefan,
thank you for your KB-Post.

I'll reply in English as it will allow customers from everywhere to understand it as well.

Is the Nexus running the most recent available firmware?

We've seen cases where the device reports the limits incorrectly. Especially with devices from the Nexus family. The values are queried during the sensor's deployment with data from the following OID's:

entSensorThresholdSeverity1., minor(10), major(20), critical(30)
entSensorThresholdRelation1., lessOrEqual(2), greaterThan(3), greaterOrEqual(4), equalTo(5), notEqualTo(6)
entSensorThresholdValue1. value)

If these are not correctly set, the automatically defined limits in the sensors will be incorrect. We suggest manually setting the thresholds in this case. Feel free to contact us via a support ticket, we can then validate the data provided by your device.

Alternatively/additionally, you can also check the following device template to deploy sensors that will monitor your device's FRU's and evaluate these using lookups instead of limits:
