Setting Up Device Profiles Overview

 

Before connecting to devices in the network to poll CLI or SNMP data, a device profile needs to be set up indicating the IP address, login information, and SNMP community strings. The Setting Up Device Profiles chapter of the Management and Monitoring Guide for IP/MPLSView describes how to set up router profiles containing login information for IP/MPLSView to connect to routers or other IP hosts in your network for data collection purposes.

Use these procedures to make your network routers accessible to IP/MPLSView for data collection via CLI or SNMP.

Check to make sure that the workstation on which IP/MPLSView is installed is connected to the router network as described in the Getting Started Guide for IP/MPLSView.

After creating a router profile, refer to Live Network Collection Overview and Collecting Supplementary Device Data Overview to learn how to collect data using the router profile that you have created.

If you have routers with dual routing engines, see the configuration guidelines as described in Dual Routing Engine Support. If you have dummy nodes that need to be displayed on the live network map, see Nodes That Are Inaccessible.
