Ekinops monitoring plugin

Verax NMS & APM Ekinops management plugin allows easy monitoring, alerting, health check, management and performance reporting of Ekinops optical transport platform equipment. The following chassis and card modules are supported: C200, C600HC, RM10010, PM1001HC, PM1001RR, PMAPC, PMC1002, PMC1008, PMC1008MP-HC, PM OABP, PM OABP-HC, PM OABPLC-OA, PM OAIL, PMOAIL-HC, MGNT and TRFAN.

SNMP is used for communicating with the hardware.

General information view

Ekinops management plugin - alarms view

The view provides high-level equipment information, such as:

  • Chassis name
  • Chassis model
  • Chassis IP address
  • System uptime and others

Alarms view

The view displays detailed information about alarms in the Ekinops platform, including their source (module name), creation time, slot number, alarm severity, port name, description, etc.

Inventory view

Ekinops management plugin - inventory view

The view provides detailed information on all modules in a chassis, including:

  • Module information: name, slot number and status.
  • Detailed module inventory data e.g. PM HW PLATFORM, SW PACKAGE, PM MODULE TRANSCEIVERS and others.
  • Alarms information e.g. Booster loss of signal, Booster TEC Fail, Pre-Ampli Transmit Laser Fail and others.
  • Monitoring statistics e.g. Booster Pump Laser Current, Pre-Amp Tx Power, PM Temperature and others.

Predefined Ekinops monitoring templates

The plugin provides predefined templates for most commonly monitored Ekinops platform items (listed in the table below). Other, user-defined sensors and performance counters can be added.
