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
format by Juniper Networks or downloaded from the Juniper Networks
subversion (SVN) repository to Junos Space Platform. .
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
readme.txt file that includes
the revision number and the date and time of publishing the catalog.
