Issue/Introduction

The Service Operations, Administration and Maintenance (OAM) data derived from the MEF36 MIB data standard is becoming more commonly used in many environments. Does CA Performance Management provide metrics and data for this standard?

Cause

At the current time, in NetOps releases 19.3 (CAPM r3.7.x releases) this is not supported. Its a technology for which standard certification processes do not apply and requires new code to implement the discovery, collection and reporting of metric data for this technology.

Environment

Performance Management r3.7.x releases (NetOps releases 19.3) and older

Resolution

This new functionality was created and successfully tested. The current expected release for it's inclusion is the NetOps 19.4 release. This may change. If not present, or issues are found with it while running that release, please engage the Performance Management support team for input via a new support case referencing this Knowledge Base article.
