The Operating System Layer

This layer tracks the temperature of the Cisco catalyst switch (see Figure 1).

Figure 1 : The tests mapped to the Operating System layer of a Cisco catalyst switch

The Cisco Temperature, Cisco CPU, and Cisco Memory tests have already been discussed in Monitoring Cisco Routers of this document. This layer is also mapped to the Cisco Voltage and Cisco Power Supply tests. However, both these tests are disabled by default. To enable the tests, go to the enable / disable tests page using the menu sequence : Agents -> Tests -> Enable/Disable, pick Cisco Catalyst Switch as the Component type, Performance as the Test type, choose the tests from the disabled tests list, and click on the >> button to move the tests to the ENABLED TESTS list. Finally, click the Update button. For details on these two tests, refer to the Monitoring Cisco Routers document.
