Change the MIB used for polling hardware health statistics

Hardware sensors information on Cisco devices can be polled using one of the following MIBs.

  • CISCO-ENTITY-SENSOR-MIB (default MIB)
  • CISCO-ENVMON-MIB

Each MIB contains different OIDs, and information for individual nodes might be included only in one of them. If you see inconsistencies between the actual hardware health and the status shown in the Orion Web Console, change the MIB used for polling hardware health statistics.

Change the MIB tree used for polling hardware health globally

  1. Log in to the Orion Web Console as an administrator.
  2. Click Settings > All Settings in the menu bar.
  3. In the Thresholds & Polling grouping, click Polling Settings.
  4. Scroll down to the Hardware Health Polling section, and select the MIB in the Preferred Cisco MIB list.
  5. Click Submit.

The default MIB used for polling all hardware sensors on all monitored nodes is changed now.

Change the MIB for polling hardware health statistics on a specific node

  1. Open the Node Details view, and click Edit Node in the Management resource.
  2. Scroll down to the Hardware Health Polling section, and select the MIB.
  3. Click Submit.

Changing MIB for a node overrides the general settings. Once you customize the MIB for polling hardware health sensors, it will not change if you change the general settings.
