Hardware Model Reports


While browsing the hardware model reports, note that many of the columns are not displayed by default. To display them, right-click the table column header and select Table Options.

For example, for the Cards view, you can add columns for the number of shutdown ports, reserved ports, serial number (S/N) column, estimated cost, and more.

For the Devices view, you can add columns that display the IPv6 address and autonomous system (AS) number, as shown in Figure 1.

Note that some cards may be displayed with the text “auto-assign by port”.

This may occur if the corresponding equipment_cli file for this node is missing, or if there is no corresponding entry in the equipment_cli for this card (for example, Juniper allows configuration of interfaces that do not yet exist.)

In addition to the card and interface list, you can also view the slot and port usage per device or per card in the Device Usage and Line Card Usage reports. You can also see the customer usage in the Customer Usage Report where by default, the customer is identified by vrf.

Click the Hardware CapEX report to view estimated costs of the equipment. Right-click and select Expand All to view the details.

To modify the costs, switch to Modify mode, reopen Inventory > Hardware Inventory, select the Hardware CapEX report, and right-click in the table and select Router Equipment Cost... Costs can be manually changed or imported via a file.

Note that the default cost comes from the /u/wandl/db/misc/routercost.txt file or the cardcost file. In Live Network mode, the cost can be modified from the /u/wandl/data/.network/cardcost.x file. The cardcost file should be referenced in the specification file using the keyword “cardcost”.
