What events are generated in Smarts for power supply issues on Cisco devices?

Status of power supply is shown as UNKNOWN in Smarts containment tab when the power supply is removed

Environment

VMware Smart Assurance - SMARTS

Cause

Smarts only generates a StateNotNormal event when the ciscoEnvMonSupplyState OID reports a status of Warning, Critical, notFunctionning or Shutdown (see Fix statement). When a power supply is removed (status 5:notPresent), Smarts returns UNKNOWN status for the power supply.

Resolution

To poll power supply state on Cisco devices, Smarts uses the ciscoEnvMonSupplyState OID ( 1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.13.1.5.1.3 ) from the  CISCO-ENVMON-MIB. The following shows the status possibilities of this OID:
OID 1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.13.1.5.1.3
Type CiscoEnvMonState
1:normal
2:warning
3:critical
4:shutdown
5:notPresent
6:notFunctioning
