NPM - Cisco Stack Power Alerting

Hi all,

Just to put it out there, I'm relatively new to the thwack community, but happy to be here! I have learned a lot from these threads.

My question is in regards to alerting us to stack-power issues within our environment. We use stack-power on 3850's, and now will be doing the same with the catalyst 9300's as well. However, I just cannot seem to get Orion to alert me on when the stack-power ring goes down. Switch stack rings alert just fine, but not stack-power. I have tried using the "stack power redundancy lost" alert, and have made my own as well to try and fiddle with the settings.

Has anyone encountered issues like this? If so, any tips on how to resolve?

  • Cisco 3850's
    • Stack-power group mode = power sharing strict
  • Cisco 9300's
    • Stack-power group mode = power sharing strict

One of the alerts I have tried (2 screen grabs):

Your best solution is to setup a undp for chassis status and do a custom node poller alert for changed status. Save you the head melt.

That kind of defeats the purpose of the "switch stack power" object in alerts. Not sure why it would be added if it doesn't work as intended.
