    Optical monitoring for Ciena OME6500 (Nortel)

    otnnetwork

      Hi All,

       

      Is there anyone successfull to grab Nortel Optical PM with solarwinds? Because, I've tried that for OSC and ORL parameter didn't success. There are no percentation and graphic for tx/rx. Look the capture below.

      But for ETH10G parameter successfully show the percentation and graphic for tx/rx. Look the capture below.

      Is there anyone help for this issue? Is there any setting that I missed? I use Solarwinds Orion Platform 2017 and Ciena OME6500. Please share your experience. Thank you.

       

      Best Regards

          Hi

           

          Yes ...

          WDM optics vendors don't use "standart counters"

          Solarwinds use only RFC1213

           

          You probebly can get some counters with UNDP but its no the same...

          What object IDs (OIDs) does Orion NPM poll for interface information? What types of interface information does Orion NPM poll?

          By default, Orion NPM polls the following interface-related OIDs, as listed by type.

              Hi sja,

               

              The node details like below. So OID value 1.3.6.1.4.1.562.68.11 not suppported Orion NPM?

               

              Below is example interface type Other didn't success show utilization. I need this (like ORL,OSC, AMP) to show utilization.

              Below is example interface type Ethernet successfully show utilization

               

              So what i have to do? please share your experience and step by step to solve this. Thank you.

                  That OID is just the SysObjectID, it helps to identify the vendor of the device.

                   

                  You need to go into List Resources to see if the Interfaces are listed. Make sure that the Interface Traffic is selected.

                   

                  The OIDs posted above are what is checked for All Vendor devices. Ciena does not use the Interface OIDs, Custom Pollers will have to be created.

                   

                  Universal Device Poller

                  The Universal Device Poller is the application that will allow you to poll non-standard and not out of the box information from any SNMP enabled device. If you already know the MIB and/or OID for the data you want to pol.

                   

                  The following resources provide more information about Universal Device Pollers:

                  • "Monitoring MIBs with Universal Device Pollers" in the SolarWinds Orion Network Performance Monitor Administrator Guide.

                  http://www.solarwinds.com/NetPerfMon/SolarWinds/wwhelp/wwhimpl/js/html/wwhelp.htm#href=OrionAGMonitoringCustomMIBs.htm

                  • The following will show you how to add an OID, search MIBs, Transform a MIB result, and create a Table to show on your Website.

                  How to Setup Custom Pollers

                  1. To access the Application on the Solarwinds Server, please go into Start and search for Universal Device Poller, or under Programs> Solarwinds Orion> Network Performance Monitor> Universal Device Poller.
                  2. Click on New Universal Device Poller
                    1. In OID, enter in the OID Above
                    2. Under Name, you can enter in the MIB Name
                    3. Expand Out Advanced
                    4. MIB Value Type:  Raw Value
                    5. Format: None
                    6. SNMP Get Type: Get Next
                    7. Polling Type: Node
                    8. Polling Interval (Leave blank)
                    9. Keep Historical Data: Yes
                    10. Status Enabled
                    11. Select Next
                  3. In the Assign (Poller Name) to Nodes, select the Devices, then select Test.
                    1. If it comes back as a green checkbox, then it is returning information
                    2. If you see OID not Supported, then the device does not support this custom poller
                    3. Select Next
                  4. Display (poller Name) Results on Orion Website
                    1. Select Chart Next to Node Details - Summary
                    2. Select Finish

                    Hi

                     

                    Can't just compare between WDM element and Ethernet element...

                    When I need to  monitor something like WDM or RF amplifier

                    I poll someting like   power  in/out  with  Custom Poller.

                    I will also view SNMP trap in the node view as extra source data.

                     

                    That is about what "I" need from that type og element...

                    We use WDM  as very big "SFP" :-) I don't  sale that capacity to 3 party
