IPSLA tests discovered but views show "No Data to Display"

IPSLA tests are discovered but return no data when polled.
The tests discovered are valid IPSLA tests as configured on the device.


Release : All supported releases

Component : IM Polling


In the "Detailed Poll Logging" dcdebug output we see sysUpTime reported as returning null

MMM DD HH:MM:SS.###: CiscoIPSLADynamicDiscovery processed discovery: baseOID=
 userObject=ItemBasedRequestState[responseReceivedTimestamp=UNIXTIMESTAMP(DDD MMM DD HH:MM:SS TZ YYYY), itemList=[ITEMID]] ,discoveryIntf=com.ca.im.dm.snmp.collector.ipsla.discovery.process.CiscoIPSLAInitialState@#######,
 discoveryResult=sysUpTime=null, fullOID=, dynamicIndex=null ,discoveryState=FAILED, currentDynamicIndex=null

This is because when we poll the item, the device returned sysUpTIme as type Integer32, not TImeTicks as it should be and as expected by DX Netops Performance Management

A sapwalk may show sysUpTime as type TImeTicks, but the type returned when polled is Integer32.
This can be confirmed using a packet capture of the polling activity to the device.


Contact the device vendor, as this is a device issue.
