If you are using the external attributes in your REST scripts or any 3rd party integrations, we would suggest using the internal attributes to improve the SS performance.
Release : 21.2.4
Component : Spectrum
As part of 21.2.4, we added a few internal attributes which get synced when external attrs are read by Spectrum through OC or IH intelligence.
Interface External Attrs
Device Ext. Attrs
When the port polling is enabled (ok_to_poll / PollPortStatus) the IH (Inference Handler) will read the external attributes (ifOperStatus & ifAdminStatus) for every poll cycle to calculate the internal_Link_status. Internal attributes are updated whenever the external attributes are read.
If you select the Interface tab / read internal_Link_status / ifOperStatus, it updates the internal attributes.
We have an update action to update the X_IfAlias and that is attached to Event Procedure to update for every interface configuration. With the new attribute Internal_If_Alias, it gets updated whenever IfAlias is read.
