I have been using it since December of last year. We are monitoring Calix E7 units with it. It is not bad. We have just had a few issues with the ability to poll with SNMPv2c and the different version of firmware n the Calix units. 2.2.100 was not polling in bulk. We upgraded to 2.3.50 and the bulk polling started to work and all was well. We just upgraded to version 2.3.60 and now the bulk polling has broke again. The Solarwinds NPM product does not allow for polling by individual OID in polls 20 OIDs at a time which either crashes Calix boxes or just times out. I have been having trouble lately with the interface name information not coming through for 8XX series ONTs I get the 7XX series names fine. Thats all I got right now. It is noce to have someone else do what I am doing. I have been trying to start my own Calix group here on the Thwack to get some information going.
We are having some trouble graphing utilization on AE and GPON connections. Apparently the E7 reindexes periodically. I'm still gathering details, but wondering if anyone here has run into that.
Actually, it seems we are down to 668 devices.
Here are the different versions we are using.
Let me know which ones you are using, and which specific stats you are looking for, and I will see if I can find anything.
|BLC B6 252||1|
|BLC 6640 01||2|
|BLC 6152 01||5|
|BLC 6252 03||6|
|BLC 6440 01||8|
|BLC 6212 02||11|
|BLC 6151 01||15|
|BLC 6252 02||55|
We have roughly 700 B-series DSL blades being polled in NPM.
What specific environmental stats are you looking for?
Occam/Calix DSL blades are not the best for storing information in the best place.
I have had to build some custom pollers, and then piece them together to get various software/firmware/revision data linked together.
