Proper Monitoring of a Cisco FEXs on Cisco Nexus 5k and 7k in CA Spectrum

Idea created by Andreas.Horst on Nov 20, 2017

    Hi all,


    we are really struggeling to monitor the FEX uplinks on Cisco Nexus 5k and 7k in in Spectrum.

    So an uplink to a FEX is seen as normal interface and not as virtual backplane extention.

    So the only sollution currently is to model a Fan out for every FEX, witch relay doesn´t suite our environment.


    Its really easy to monitor this on the Switch itself, so why not in spectrum


    Fabric interface state:
    Po149 - Interface Up. State: Active
    Eth3/46 - Interface Up. State: Active
    Eth4/46 - Interface Up. State: Active


    Kind Regards,
