Chassis performance monitoring

Just wondering if there is any interest at all in this as we are about to give up on our chassis.

I wrote a script that created nicely grouped MRTG (yes yes, I'm old as a dinosaur!) graphs regarding chassis.

You get chassis level view on CPU and Backplane usage on all SGMs

CPUs stats will have any CoreXL config included and will cater for Hyperthreading by placing siblings next to each other

Then you have "VS overview" stats across all VSes with four main KPIs (throughput, Concurrect connections, CPS and PPS)

And lastly "per VS" view where you can select any VS that you have configured

and then get per SGM and total stats for all KPIs above plus virtual memory usage (since it's still 32bit kernel so you need to watch out, especially on VSX)

None of the "off-shelf" tools that we had didn't really cater for "chassis" plus VSX matrix so I ended up going back to MRTG  as it gave me one screen collections that I wanted.

But now we are about to give up on chassis after 4 years so this will go to bin..

If there's any interest out there I could polish those scripts and dump them here.

I don't know if we could port it to be used with Maestro Orchestrator and CheckMK?

Hmm, I'm guessing that command outputs would be different when I collect data in R76SP50.. We can take it via PM if you want - I would probably need couple of command output samples just to verify that it parses info correctly

Four years too late I'm afraid as we just bought 26800 instead of 41K 🙂 so this effort will go into bin

Sorry guys - been way too busy and on holidays so haven't had time to "clean" it up before publishing. Lots of manual steps still that I need to convert to script 🙂 WIP!
