Monitoring Cisco Intersight

eG Enterprise offers a specialized monitoring model that monitors the Cisco Intersight service using targeted queries and sheds light on current or probable performance dips that the underlying infrastructure being managed by Cisco Intersight might suffer.

Figure 1 : Layer Model for Cisco-Intersight

Every layer of Figure 1 is mapped to a wide variety of tests that monitor critical performance parameters such as operability status, presence status, workload, number of errors etc. of the core components of the infrastructure being managed. To pull out such useful performance data from the Cisco Intersight, the eG agent connects remotely to Cisco IntersightSaaS platform using API.

The metrics so collected would enable administrators to find accurate answers for the following performance queries:

  • What is the current overall status of equipment chassis?
  • What is the number of blade servers in equipment chassis being managed by Cisco Intersight?
  • Are various modules like Fan, IO, memory etc. working as expected?
  • Is Power supply present and what is the status of power supply?
  • What is the state of input and output power?
  • Is there enough redundancy in power supply to handle the failure?
  • What is the operational speed of each Ethernet port?
  • What is the overall status of the blade servers?
  • What percentage of memory is available for blade server for operation at any given time?
  • What is the total number of CPU cores and how many cores are enabled?
  • How much memory capacity is available to blade servers?
  • What is the clock speed and latency of memory array units?
  • What is the current state of motherboard, how many CPUs and graphic cards are used?
