Viewing Hardware Inventory of Data Center Devices
In Contrail Networking Release 1909, you can view the hardware inventory of all data center devices deployed in a fabric using the Contrail Command user interface (UI). You can use the Hardware Inventory tab in Contrail Command to view the hardware inventory information. In releases prior to Contrail Networking Release 1909, you had to use the show chassis hardware command on the CLI to view the hardware inventory of a data center device. The hardware inventory contains information about CPU, power supply, Flexible PIC Concentrators (FPCs), Physical Interface Cards (PICs), and so on installed in the router or switch chassis of the devices in the data center fabric. The hardware inventory information of a device is read and populated, when the fabric onboarding job is initiated after adding the device to a new or existing fabric; however, you can also view the hardware inventory information of the device in real-time.
To view the hardware inventory in the Contrail Command UI, perform the following steps:
- Click a fabric in the Infrastructure>Fabrics page.
The Fabric devices page is displayed with a list of devices deployed in the fabric.
- Click any device from the list to view the hardware inventory
of the device.
The Interfaces page is displayed.
- Click the Hardware Inventory tab.
The hardware inventory of the selected device is displayed. See Figure 1.
- (Optional) Click the Fetch button if there is no inventory information available or you want to see an updated inventory information. See Figure 1.
For more information about the fields displayed on the Hardware Inventory page, see show chassis hardware.
