DFM Monitoring of Frame Relay Interfaces ifType=32

Unanswered Question
Dec 19th, 2008

DFM seems to have frame relay subinterfaces set as UNMANAGED by default.

When I set their managed state to TRUE the admin and oper status remains unknown. (I validated the snmp polling is fine.) I assume this is because DFM is not able to monitor Frame Relay subinterfaces. Is that correct ? (SMARTS Incharge I believe also doesn't monitor DLCI subinterfaces by default unless you purchase the Frame Relay add-on product.)

Since these frame subinterfaces have associated IP addresses, once I set their managed state to TRUE will I get IF down on these interfaces via ICMP polling ? Or will I only get their IP Unresponsive ?


I have this problem too.

DFM does not manage subinterfaces by default. Managing them manually through DDV does not fully work. There is a complex CLI procedure available (attached), but you may want to contact TAC for more guidance.

This is extrememly helpful...thanks. I think I can write an ASL script to do what I want out of this.
