Hardware Catalog Overview

 

Starting from Release 17.1R1, Junos Space Network Management Platform provides Hardware Catalog that enable you to manage hardware components of Juniper Networks devices. Hardware catalog saves you from updating Junos Space Platform software every time a new hardware component, for example, a line card, an FPC, or a power supply module, is added to a Juniper Networks device that Junos Space Platform manages. When new components are added, Juniper Networks provides a new hardware catalog that you can import to the Junos Space platform.

You can extend Junos Space Platform support to new hardware components on managed devices by uploading the latest hardware catalog distributed in the *.tgz archived format by Juniper Networks or downloaded from the Juniper Networks subversion (SVN) repository to Junos Space Platform. .

Note

Hardware catalog does not enable fault and performance monitoring of newly added hardware components on managed devices.

The content of the hardware catalog is derived from the latest DMI schema and always includes the latest hardware components present in the devices running Junos OS. The hardware catalog archive also contains a readme.txt file that includes the revision number and the date and time of publishing the catalog. The following is a sample of the readme.txt file:

You can view and manage hardware catalogs from the Hardware Catalog page of the Junos Space Platform user interface. From the Hardware Catalog page, you can also configure the settings for downloading hardware catalogs from Juniper Networks SVN repository.

The Hardware Catalog page displays the following information:

  • revision number of the hardware catalog installed in Junos Space Platform

  • the date and time the hardware catalog was initially published by Juniper Networks

  • the date and time the hardware catalog in Junos Space Platform was last updated

  • the revision number and the date and time since the latest hardware catalog is available in the SVN repository
