LMS Data Collection

I just have installed LMS 4.0.1 and have the following query.

What is "Data Collection" in LMS and how does it differs from "Inventory Collection" ?

What datas are collected from the devices being managed by LMS and what is the mode of collection? (SNMP, SSH, Telnet ..)

Thanks.

LMS Data Collection

Hi RajMohan,

Device creadentials are like  Community string , Telnet and SSH credentilas

Device attributes like type of device ,model etc..

2.Yes it is SNMP polling

CDP MIB is used by Data collection to gathere the information for topology

I hope this will clear your doubt.

If above post helped you ,kindly mark it resolved

Thanks

LMS Data Collection

Hi ,

  Data Collection (which is a part of Campus Manager ):

1. Gets the list of devices and their credentials from DCR.

2. Polls these devices.

3. Fetches  information that is required for topology computation, reporting  network discrepancies, and for various reports and device  configurations.

Chekc this link:

Inventory collection :

collects the Invenory information of the device like Flash ,RAM ...etc

For inventory collection ONLY SNMP  protocol is used

I hope this will help

Thanks

LMS Data Collection

Thank you Afroz. Some basic doubts to clear my understanding:

#

1. Gets the list of devices and their credentials from DCR.

What is the basic difference between Device credentials and Device Attributes?

#

2. Polls these devices.

Is this an SNMP polling?

Can you please explain which MIB/OIDs this data collection use to gather information for topology computation?
