Viewing the Device Inventory Page
The Device Inventory page lists devices managed by Edge Services Director and provides basic information about the devices, such as IP address and current operating status, and configured services, such as server load balancing (SLB) and carrier grade NAT (CGNAT). The Device Inventory page is available in Build mode.
Hardware inventory information shows the slots that are available for a device and provides information about power supplies, chassis cards, fans, part numbers, and so forth. Edge Services Director displays hardware inventory by device name, based on data retrieved both from the device during discovery and resynchronization operations, and from the data stored in the hardware catalog. For each managed device, the hardware catalog provides descriptions for field replaceable units (FRUs), part numbers, model numbers, and the pluggable locations from which empty slots are determined.
The Device Inventory page provides two pie charts that summarize the status of the devices and services in your network environment. You can remove or restore a category (segment) from the pie chart by clicking that segment in the chart.
To view the device inventory page:
- From the View selector, select Gateway View. The workspaces that are applicable to this view are displayed.
- From the Junos Space user interface, click the Build icon on the Edge Services Director banner.
The functionalities that you can configure in this mode are displayed in the task pane.
- From the View pane, select the All Network item in Gateway view. You can also click the plus sign (+) beside the All Network item in the View pane to expand the tree and select the device node you want.
- From the task pane in Gateway view, select Inventory
> View Inventory.
The Device Inventory page for the entire network, the SDG group, or the particular SDG is displayed, depending on the view or perspective you selected.
The following charts are displayed in the top half of the page:
Connection State—Shows the proportion of devices that are up or down. In this chart, Virtual Chassis count as one device. The possible connection states are:
UP—Device is connected to Edge Services Director.
DOWN—Device is not connected to Edge Services Director.
N/A—Device connection state is not available.
Managed Status—Shows the proportion of devices in each configuration state. See Table 1 for definitions of the configuration states.
Table 1: Managed Status Pie Chart
The configuration on the device is in sync with the Edge Services Director configuration for the device.
Out Of Sync
The configuration on the device does not match the Edge Services Director configuration for the device. This state is usually the result of the device configuration being altered outside of Edge Services Director.
You cannot deploy configuration on a device from Edge Services Director when the device is Out Of Sync. To resolve this state, use the Resynchronize Device Configuration task in Deploy mode.
An attempt to resynchronize an Out Of Sync device failed.
The device configuration is in the process of being resynchronized.
The device is down or is an access point.
Mouse over a pie segment to view the actual number of devices and the percentage represented by that pie segment.
In the left pane, which displays all the configured SDGs in a tree format, the All Service Gateways option is selected by default. The right pane that displays the pie graphs and the corresponding tabular details of services, hardware, and interfaces in the bottom part of the right pane are corresponding with the All Service Gateways selection. You can select a specific SDG from the left pane and the right pane details are appropriately shown.
The lower half of the Inventory page contains three tabs—Gateway, Hardware, and Interface. These tabs are displayed only if you expand the All Network item in the View pane and select a device node or SDG. Otherwise, only the fields under the Gateway tab are displayed.
Table 2 describes the fields under the Gateway tab of the Device Inventory table.
Table 2: Fields Under the Gateway Tab
Hostname of the device.
Software version the device is running.
IP address configured for the device.
Device family to which the device belongs. Hardware family such as Junos OS is displayed.
Model number of the device.
Indicates whether the device’s configuration is in sync with Edge Services Director’s version:
Name of the service delivery gateway.
Service Gateway Group
Name of the group to which the SDG is assigned.
Table 3 describes the fields under the Hardware tab of the Device Inventory table.
Table 3: Fields Under the Hardware Tab
Name of the SDG and the platform type, such as MX240 or MX480. Click the plus sign (+) to expand the tree to display the components of the device, such as chassis, PIC, CPU, and PIC parameters. Information about the chassis, midplane, craft interface (FPM), power midplane (PMP), Power Supply Modules (PSMs), Power Distribution Modules (PDMs), Routing Engines, Control Boards (CBs) and Switch Processor Mezzanine Boards (SPMBs), Switch Fabric Boards (SFBs), Flexible PIC Concentrators (FPCs), PICs, adapter cards (ADCs) and fan trays is displayed.
Model number of the FRU hardware component.
Model of the FRU component.
Part number of the chassis component.
Serial number of the chassis component. The serial number of the backplane is also the serial number of the router chassis. Use this serial number when you need to contact Juniper Networks Customer Support about the router or switch chassis.
Brief description of the hardware item:
Table 4 describes the fields under the Interface tab of the Device Inventory table.
Table 4: Fields Under the Interface Tab
Hostname of the SDG.
Physical Interface Name
Name of the physical interface.
IP address configured on the interface.
