About Chassis View


You can view a high-level, graphical representation of the chassis. It indicates the state of the interfaces. When the administrative and operational status of the interface is up, it is displayed in green. If the administrative status is down, the interface is displayed in grey. And, if the administrative status is up and operational status is down, the interface is displayed in red. The image is a replica of the device. If you are connected to a virtual chassis, the image includes all the member switches of the virtual chassis. The chassis view also displays a count of alarms generated in the system; major alarms are displayed in red, and minor alarms in orange.

The purpose of the view is to try and provide a comprehensive monitoring view of the health and status of deployed devices across the network. In this view all the managed devices are shown with their appropriate status and health based on the services and device settings applied. This view helps the operator to know the health and status across the network, it provides with the operator to quickly see the macro level information, which allows the operator to further analyze the information provided and quickly navigate to individual devices and take any further corrective measure required. It provides a cohesive tool for the operator to quickly see the micro-level information and take any further remediation action required.
