    Adding Few more explanation here for Cisco Call Manager Showing 99% Memory Utilization in Orion .( just in case someone having this issue )


    CallManager.png

     

    The reason you are seeing 99% is due to the Cisco MCS returning back those values.

    Why its doing this, you have to Open Cisco TAC.

    NPM is returning back the values its being supplied with, in this case showing 99%.

    Poller type: Used .

    1. N.Memory.SNMP.CpqHostPhysicalMemory =

     

    Memory poller for OpenVMS systems which support proprietary CPQ-Host MIB

    Poller utilizes GetSubtree request with two OIDs to gather total and used memory:

                cpqHoPhysicalMemorySize = 1.3.6.1.4.1.232.11.2.13.1.

                cpqHoPhysicalMemoryFree = 1.3.6.1.4.1.232.11.2.13.2.

     

    Total memory is computed using this formula:

                memoryTotal = cpqHoPhysicalMemorySize * 1024

    Used memory is computed using this formula:

                memoryUsed = memoryTotal - (cpqHoPhysicalMemoryFree * 1024)

     

     

    MIB Walk shows:

                .1.3.6.1.4.1.232.11.2.13.1.0 = INTEGER: 3990 = cpqHoPhysicalMemorySize

                .1.3.6.1.4.1.232.11.2.13.2.0 = INTEGER: 60 = cpqHoPhysicalMemoryFree

     

     

    memoryTotal = 3990 * 1024 = 4085760

    memoryUsed = 4085760 - (60 * 1024) = 4085760 – 61440 = 4024320

    PercentUsed = 4024320/4085760 = 98.496% = 99%

    The "Memory" Usage and the "Physical Memory" Utilization are calculated differently by Orion NPM.

    Memory:

    The Memory is the sum of the memory used by the processes listed in the HOST-RESOURCES-MIB:hrSWRunPerfTable (1.3.6.1.2.1.25.5.1).

    The OID used is the hrSWRunPerfMem (1.3.6.1.2.1.25.5.1.1.2).



    Physical Memory:

    The Physical Memory is calculated based on the values populated in the HOST-RESOURCES-MIB:hrStorageTable (1.3.6.1.2.1.25.2.2.3).

    The OIDs used are hrStorageSize (1.3.6.1.2.1.25.2.3.1.5), hrStorageUsed (1.3.6.1.2.1.25.2.3.1.6) and hrStorageAllocationUnits (1.3.6.1.2.1.25.2.3.1.4) .
