I'm looking for a way to detect router reloads due to software crash. One way of doing it is to have a script that connect on to the routers, issue a "sh ver" and lookup the
"System returned to ROM by <reason>". <reason> being the action that triggered the reload.
I also found a "whyReload" object in the OLD-CISCO-SYS MIBs which is a string variable that contains the reason why the router was restarted. In all the routers I have this object is set to "reload". I'm wondering what are the orther values that this object can have , especially in case of crash.
Anyone with some experience with this MIB , or idea suggestions on how to track this type of event ?
Table 48: Deprecated and Replacement MIBs:
Isnt any replacement for whyReload so, you can use it for now.
