Supervisor 720 Health Check/SNMP/Syslog

I have multiple 6500 Catalyst switches with redundant Supervisor 720's. Periodically a redundant sup will fail. I need a syslog message or SNMP trap sent to our network management software. What are some options to configure this? Even better would be a way to remotely actively monitor the standby sup state.

Re: Supervisor 720 Health Check/SNMP/Syslog

If you want to monitor module status, take a look at the moduleStatus and moduleStandbyStatus objects from the CISCO-STACK-MIB.  In a healthy switch, the active sup will have a moduleStatus of ok(2) and a moduleStandbyStatus of active(2).  The standby sup will have a moduleStatus of ok(2), and a moduleStadbyStatus of standby(3).

You can also enable module traps:

snmp-server enable traps module

And that will send moduleUp and moduleDown traps which indicate that a module's moduleStatus has transitioned from or to the ok(2) state.
