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:

  1. From the View selector, select Gateway View. The workspaces that are applicable to this view are displayed.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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

Field

Description

In Sync

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.

Sync failed

An attempt to resynchronize an Out Of Sync device failed.

Synchronizing

The device configuration is in the process of being resynchronized.

N/A

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.
