Calling All Cisco Nexus Admins! (2,000 Thwack Points)

We're doing some research around Cisco's Nexus platform.  To accomplish our research, we need some data from production Nexus devices.  We're specifically interested in Nexus 7K and 5Ks with attached FEX.  If you have one or several of these devices you're eligible.  Perform the following data gather steps to earn 2,000 Thwack points:

  1. Perform a full SNMP walk.  Instructions here: Run SolarWinds SNMPWALK - SolarWinds Worldwide, LLC. Help and Support
  2. Capture CLI output using the following instructions:
    1. If you do not have a telnet client that supports logging, download putty.
    2. If using putty, configure logging before connecting by selecting Logging in the left index, selecting the "All session output" radio button, and clicking browse... to choose where to save the results.

    3. Connect to the Nexus device. To do this using putty, click Session in the left index, enter your Host Name, and click the Open button.

    4. Log in to your device and the copy/paste the commands from the attached file into your terminal.  These are show commands and are not invasive.
    5. Once complete, upload the putty.log (compressed it if needed) from the location defined in Step 2 to https://Share.SolarWinds.com/?ShareToken=1551A7184FFFD8EDEB3F77A9F2FCE3DB3947B07C
  3. Make a comment on this thread and I'll get you your Thwack points.

Thanks very much!

I've just uploaded SNMP Walk and session trace log files of our Nexus 5672 with a couple of FEXes. Looking forward to better support of Cisco Nexus devices in Solarwinds products.

Files uploaded - similar issue with the SNMPwalk (albeit after nearly 200000 lines) but it does include the OID's listed above ..

I uploaded a file (5K 2000), but can't get the snmpwalk to run, it times out. I also tried polling separately with the OID's above with the same results.

I know you requested N7 or N5 with FEX, but I uploaded N9396 with FEX...sorry, all I got for you.

SNMPv3 and crashed around 43xxx, but I saved the file and got the command line and uploaded.

I uploaded the CLI data but had the same issue with the walk.  See below the error message from SNMP walk.  I think some of the OIDs are not customer accessible.  I got to 88600 before it crashed.

We've got a pair of 5548s connected to 17 FEX units.

We're running snmpv3 and I get the same error here at 96210.

I've uploaded the CLI and the SNMPWalk output.

I hope it's of use

That's exactly what my snmp walk ran into after ~40,000 hits.

Seems that way

I dare to ask, but do you guys have more than say, 20-30 fex's? Pure speculation but curious. I think we had somewhere in that realm and it didn't error out. Also: SNMPv2 (laughably/sadly).
