Is there a way to monitor individual switch member in a stack? I mean like putting ip addres and using an icmp monitoring tool to monitor them 24x7?
What is the message in the log (and level) if one of the member switch fail? Will the same message retain in the log if the master fail? I'm thinking of configuring the switch to send its log to a syslog server, then run a log monitoring tool to monitor for that specific line in the log and trigger and alert via smtp, sms, or paging if icmp monitoring of member switch in the stack is not possible.
