Recently we have started evaluating the Ciscoworks LMS 3.0.1 Product to replace our existing NMS including BMC Visualis (fault management), which we finally decided to shutdown after numerous errors/database failures etc.
We have successfully installed CiscoWorks and added all of our devices in its database. We are having some issue with the topology services diagrams.
Whenever we select any device from the Topology Service Graphical View(s) and start troubleshooting, for example if we shutdown a switch's uplink manually to test the DFM component, the changes are not reflected immediately on the graph, we have to perform Data collection by right clicking the device every time.
Can anyone please help us on how to tweak the CiscoWorks settings so that the Topology Services Diagrams in CiscoWorks are updated automatically from GREEN/RED color and vice versa in case of failures/linkups ? Also will be there any performance impact by changing such a setting (if any exists) in terms of the CiscoWorks CPU/memory/database utilization etc.?
Really appreciate your help and useful pointers.
