    SNMP Location Best Practices

    fishtenors

      I'm looking to create a few network maps using Orion Network Atlas. I understand that the ConnectNow service polls the location information for network nodes via SNMP set in IOS.

      My question is:

      • What is Orion's suggested best practice for setting the SNMP Location data?
      • What is the correct format? (ex. San Fransisco, CA, USA or just Los Angeles, California)
      • Can/should it be more granular? And again, what would that format be? (ex. Cage 1, Rack 4, Los Angeles, CA, USA or Los Angeles, CA, Cage 2, Rack 1)

      Any feedback is much appreciated.
