In our Network, we have a very large number of modular Cisco devices (i.e. 4506's, 6509's etc).
We had an incident today, where a blade failed in a device, but unfortunately did not generate any alerts (i.e. we weren't monitoring any switch ports on this particular blade, and didn't have any syslog alerting for this particular module power-down event)
It would be nice for Orion to be able to monitor the module status for these devices.
We will look at custom mibs - but as expressed elsewhere, these aren't user friendly when talking about several thousand devices.
I'm looking for the same thing. I am looking through the MIBs, but it's a needle in a hay stack.
