Nexus 5000 SNMP traps for failed FEX PSU's

If entity traps are enabled, will the failure of a PSU in a FEX (with 2 PSU's) result in a trap being sent or are the entity traps only for the 5000 rather than the 2000.

Reason for asking:I have a number of failed PSU's in FEX's which might have been a failed since power on and therefore have never transitioned from working to failing to send a trap. The FEX itself is constantly complaining of voltage issues

Nexus 5000 SNMP traps for failed FEX PSU's

Hello Andy,

Do you receive SNMP traps for other events ? any special config like SNMPv3 / authentication etc ?

I have not tested in lab. Is it possible for you to check " cefcFRUPowerStatusEntry "   /  1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.117.1.1.2.1.2.471  OID ?

or do snmp walk for  1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.117.1.1.2.1 ?

Nexus 5000 SNMP traps for failed FEX PSU's

Padma,

     Thanks for your response, we do get snmp traps from these switches, I tested that with a "test pfm snmp test-trap powersupply" and the trap was received, There is no special snmp configuration. The OID you are requesting returns a different value for each of our two 5010 switches

switch A= SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.9.9.117.1.1.2.1.3.471 = INTEGER: 1087

switch B= SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.9.9.117.1.1.2.1.3.471 = INTEGER: 1018

In both switches entity traps are enabled

entity               : entity_mib_change                            Yes

entity               : entity_module_status_change                  Yes

entity               : entity_power_status_change                   Yes

entity               : entity_module_inserted                       Yes

entity               : entity_module_removed                        Yes

entity               : entity_unrecognised_module                   Yes

entity               : entity_fan_status_change                     Yes

entity               : entity_power_out_change                      Yes

I notice your OID references "FRU" and I see a hidden extension to the snmp-server enable trap command

hidden-nameB(config)# snmp-server enable trap entity ?                       

  entity_fan_status_change     Entity Fan Status Change                       

  entity_mib_change            Entity MIB change                               

  entity_module_inserted       Entity Module Inserted                         

  entity_module_removed        Entity Module Removed                          

  entity_module_status_change  Entity Module Status Change                    

  entity_power_out_change      Entity Power Out Change                         

  entity_power_status_change   Entity Power Status Change                     

  entity_unrecognised_module   Entity Unrecognised Module                     

                                                                              
hidden-nameB(config)# snmp-server enable trap entity fru

hidden-nameB(config)#

I would be interested to see if this FRU was required yet hidden.

  5.1(3) does not have the

  5.1(3) does not have the fru command option.  The command is snmp_server enable traps entity entity_power_status_change.  

  I don't believe this is turned on by default, but I cannot find any documentation that says this command is not enabled by default with the snmp-server enable traps command.  

  I also do not see any documentation that states this command will notify us of a Nexus 2000 power supply failure.  Please advise.
