Can someone from SolarWinds confirm what UDT does when it polls for info? I am trying to figure where the breakdown is so I can possibly solve my issues where I am getting very hit and miss results.
I have some switches that do not get any info , some that only show MAC's and a few that work fully.
Is this the way it is?
Pull Mac table -> find nearest layer 3 and pull ARP cache (via cdp?)-> Do reverse DNS lookups on IPs -> Correlate all the data
My guess is maybe the ones where I get MACs only the chassis is performing L3 and the switch ARP does not get pulled.
The ones where I get nothing, well I have no clue about those yet but it must be for the same reason as its all my 6500's so far and then my Nexus 5k's.
To confirm , the devices I get only L2 from have no associated router whereas those that do will have one or list themselves which is correct. In fact I have one that should list itself but it picked a router that serves only as a voice gateway and does not route.
