We are trying to enable CRC Errors notification in CAPM tool.

We have found the relevant "dot3StatsFCSErrors" metrics in Spectrum. But We are unable to find the same one in CAPM to enable it.


CAPM 3.x


To find the metric do the following:

  • Log on to the data aggregator shell
  • cd /opt/IMDataAggregator/data/certifications/
  • Run the following command: grep dot3StatsFCSErrors *
    • This will give you the various vendor certs that contain the metric.  In this case the vendor cert is Ethernet w/DOT3 which ties to the Alternate Interface metric family
Having this info will allow you to create threshold profiles / dashboards etc.
