Ways to enable Port Status Polling in SPECTRUM
There are 3 ways to selectively enable port monitoring through polling.
These will regularly check the mib for ifOperStatus and ifAdminStatus of the port.
This is enabled by default at the device, but disabled per port so as not to induce too much load on the SpectroSERVER.
To enable port polling set both the device and port's PollPortStatus=True.
If this is not still working as desired, then check the following attributes:
polling interval is not = 0
isManaged = true
When these are enabled by right-clicking on a resolved pipe, SPECTRUM will set ok_to_poll=true on each end port. This will enable polling on those ports. Verify that this is not disabled globally in the Landscape>Configuration view.
This can be set to ports only, link only, or bothportsandlink. Check to ensure the WA_Segment models are properly resolved over the appropriate end ports
In the VNM Component Detail View > Configuration > Fault Isolation set Port Fault Correlation to Disabled, All Connected Ports, or Management Neighbors Only.
This is covered in depth in the How to Manage Your Network with SPECTRUM document under Configuring for Fault Isolation.
