Entity MIB support

The Entity MIB, rfc 6933, allows network managers to retrieve physical containment and logical relationships for devices in the network. The entconfigChange trap is sent to configured SNMP-server hosts when a change occurs. The trap is configured to send notifications no more than once every 5 seconds. We will be supporting the Entity MIB for read-only.

Physical components that are supported include:
  • Chassis

  • Fabric cards

  • Fan trays

  • Fans

  • Line cards and their interfaces

  • Management modules and the intake temperature sensor

  • Power supplies

The slots for any removable component are also represented.

The logical table of the Entity MIB represents configured VLANs and the associated ports.

entConfigChange trap/notification is sent to configurated snmp-server hosts.
