Issue/Introduction

We have a number of Cisco appliances used for DNA Center and Stealthwatch services that we need to get discovered and monitored in Performance Management to include CPU, Memory and Disk metrics similar to other server type devices.

Currently the standard Metric Families for CPU, Memory and Storage don't have any metrics that are supported for these devices.

Is there a Cert we can download and install for these device types? If not can we request one?

Or do we have to create a vendor cert ourselves?

Environment

Release : 3.7

Component : IM Reporting / Admin / Configuration

Resolution

The MIBs for the UCS devices only provide certain asset and status information.  System health like CPU, Memory and Disk need to come from agents on the Guest OS (VMs).
