DFM configuration - managing thresholds

Unanswered Question

Trying to figure out: in DFM/Configuration/Polling and Thresholds/Managing Thresholds under Device Group/DFM/System Defined Groups/Interfacce groups I do not find and possibility for defining thresholds on 10 Gig interfaces. Is 10 G not supported? or which thresholds are valid for 10 Gig interfaces?

I have just had a case with a sick fibre on a 10 Gig connection causing massive packet loss, but got no alarm in DFM, so am wondering why.

No, 10 GB interfaces are not currently supported. This is bug CSCsq67843.

OK - thx for quick answer.

Hmm..this bug seems to be a secret (below is what I find) for some reason :b

Do you have any idea within what timeframe 10 G will be supported in CiscoWorks - our Core and Distribution links are all 10 G, so error whatch by CW is a strong whish :)

The bug is an enhancement request, so it will not be viewable on Cisco.com. Support is currently planned for DFM 3.2 due out this summer.
