have a look in the database, at the Nodes view, it should have all the things you need.
SELECT [NodeID] --unique ID for each device
,[Caption] -- aka hostname
,[Vendor] -- Who made it
,[SysObjectID] -- SNMP System Object ID
,[Description] -- Details of the device type, usually with OS details
,[IOSImage] --IOS details
,[IOSVersion] --IOS version
,[MachineType] --Device details
,[IsServer] -- true or false
Personally I think you'd want Vendor and MachineType to identify what you're after.
yeah, i have all these things but that is not helping me i want something that can tell me, that this is a router or this is switch .. its really difficult to identify by vendor or machine type because there is vendor is always cisco and machine type are many.... So i want the proper indication like router or switch.
may be there is not something like this but can we add something like that while discovering the device in solarwinds or something else?
If you can't decide if it's a router/switch from the machine type, or the SNMP SytsObjectID (which is pretty unique across device types) then you're scuppered.
Failing that, create a new Custom Property, against the Node, such as isRouter with True/False values or DeviceType with dropdowns such as router, switch and server (expand as required). These will of course need to be manually populated though - so back to you - is it a router or a switch?
Thanks.. i was looking for any other options if we can have, anyways i'll do it .. Thank you Guys.
Looks like you might need a custom property to do this.
Probably a Custom Property would be best. Some switches are also routers.
