Utilization of a switch backplane in LMS

Unanswered Question
Feb 22nd, 2010

I am trying to see the Utilization of the entire backplane of a Cisco 6509 in LMS.  I can only find a way to see the utilization of each individual interface, and not the entire device.  I would like to see this because I want to not only see the traffic going out on the uplink, but I would also like to see the traffic passed from one interface to the other.  Is there a way for me to see the utilization of the entire device in LMS?

You can see switching load metrics using sysTrafficMeterTable objects from the CISCO-STACK-MIB.  You could load this MIB into HUM, then poll the various objects for the supported switching paths.

Joe,


I am trying to load the CISCO-STACK-MIB set and keep getting error "Unable to load the MIB file.  Either you are trying to load an invalid MIB file or the dependent MIB files are not available in the path."


I have loaded all the MIB's in the Import section of the CISCO-STACK-MIB, and still get the error.


I found another prerequisite list of this MIB and attempted to load all of those, however I get the same error on RFC1155-SMI.  I cannot find a prerequisite list, nor do I see an IMPORTS section in this file. 


Any ideas what I can do to get around these problems?


Thanks

Joe,


     I finally was able to load all of the dependencies for CISCO-STACK-MIB.  I loaded the dependencies in the order I found them on this page:  http://tools.cisco.com/Support/SNMP/do/BrowseMIB.do?local=en&mibName=CISCO-STACK-MIB


However, I am still getting the same error while trying to load the CISCO-STACK-MIB that states I am trying to either load an invalid MIB file, or the dependent MIB files are not available in the path.


Any Ideas?


Thanks for your help

I may have to make some modifications to the MIB.  I will play with this tomorrow, and send you an update.

Joe,


     When I try to load this new MIB you provided, I get a different error that I have not seen before:


"ERROR: Unable to serialize the object into database.  Check if MIB details are available in database"



Thanks

I cannot reproduce.  What MIBs do you currently have loaded in HUM?

That may be part of the problem.  I never loaded the dependent MIBs.  Instead, I just had them available in the mibs subdirectory.  Post your upm_base.log, upm_ui.log, and upm_process.log.  If you don't already have stuff configured in HUM, you might also try reinitializing the upm database, then reloading the CISCO-STACK-MIB by itself.

Post the NMSROOT/hum/mibmanager/mibcompiler/xml/CISCO-STACK-MIB.xml file.

Joe Clarke Fri, 02/26/2010 - 12:42

Try deleting this file.  And make sure the NMSROOT/hum/mibmanager/mibcompiler/mibs/CISCO-STACK-MIB.my file is exactly 489692 bytes.  Then try loading it again.

I deleted the .xml file, verified the size of the MIB file is the filesize you stated, and attempted to load the MIB again.

I am still getting the same error about unable to serialize the object into the database.

I think there might be a problem with some of your other MIBs.  Here is a zip of all of my NMSROOT/hum/mibmanager/mibcompiler/mibs directory.  Replace your mibs directory with the contents of this file, delete the CISCO-STACK-MIB.xml file again, then see if the STACK-MIB will load.

Joe,


     I wiped out my entire MIBS folder, and copied in all the MIBS contained in the zip file you attached.  After doing this, the CISCO STACK MIB loaded with no problems.


I'm guessing there was some issue with one of the MIBS I had in the folder??


Thanks for all your help.
