Currently there are only options for Cicso and Juniper, are there any plans to integrate other vendors? We currnetly still use and monitor Adtran router and CSU/DSUs. I have also worked with Enterasys and HP switches which would be nice to know there EOL dates.
I am not sure if this would help, but the Hardware Health monitoring has issues with the 3750's on older code versions. This may also be the same with the end of life reporting. Check your versions to see if there any one; or test new versions to see if you can get this value to report properly.
Seems there are a few OID mismatches for some of these older code versions.

Cisco makes keeping up with EoL and EoS much harder for everyone. Even Cisco has conflicting dates reported when you engage them to look up the data.
Thanks for the effort to get a handle on these dates. Looking forward to enhancements in the future.

This isnt something that i typically deal with so im not sure if this is normal but for the Cisco EOL pages the Download software links are broken
Yes this is a must
as well, please document the individual service module and cards in a system
ie Cisco router and switch but to name a few :28xx,29xx, 38xx,39xx,45xx,65xx all have service modules that have different EOL dates
these need to be reported just like the members in a switch stack
Cisco 2921 routers are currently showing up with suggested EoL dates based on the 2950 series switches. These routers are not currently EoL.
The 2821 routers also have a similar issue where the router EoL dates are shown but the switch ones from a long time ago. One option for a fix may be figuring out manufacturer dates on the equipment and trying to match that to when the routers were in production since Cisco tends to not overlap models.
