View Results of Automated Device Tests

After a device is connected to Paragon Automation, Paragon Automation executes a series of automated tests to verify the device onboarding. For example, tests are executed to check the health of the CPU and memory, connectivity with the neighboring devices, the remote management connection between the device and Paragon Automation, and so on. You can view the results of the tests on the Device-Name page.

You can access the Device-Name page by clicking on the hostname of the device on the Put the Devices Into Services page (Inventory > Device Onboarding > Onboarding Dashboard) or Troubleshooting Devices page (Observability > Health > Troubleshoot Devices. Based on the assessment of the test results, alerts and alarms are generated for the device and listed on the Device-Name page. If there are no alerts and alarms, the device status is healthy. The alerts and alarms are categorized as follows:

  • Urgent Action Needed (Critical)

  • Action Needed (Major)

  • Being monitored (Minor)

See About the Events Page for a description of the alerts and alarms.

You can view a summary of the number of alerts and alarms for all the devices in an organization at the top of the Put Devices into Service page. The summary of the number of alerts and alarms makes it easy to find out which devices are functioning well and which ones need attention.

The Device-Name page lists the test results and data collected from the respective device under the several accordions. You can expand the accordions to view details of the collected data by clicking the arrow present at the left of the accordion. You can also contact technical support by clicking the Tech Support link and view documentation by clicking the View Documentation link. The following accordions are present on the Device-Name page:

  • Identity and Location—View general information about the device, the location where the device is installed and the trust score of the device. You can edit the site to which the device is assigned. See Identity and Location Data of a Device.

  • Remote Management—Displays the result of checks made on the management connection between the device and Paragon Automation. For information, See Remote Management Data and Test Results.

  • Hardware—View the temperature of the chassis and key performance indicators (KPIs) of all the hardware components, and confirm that there are no alerts and alarms from any of the hardware components. Any alerts and alarms related to chassis hardware are also listed. For information on the test results and the hardware data displayed, See Hardware Data and Test Results.

  • Interfaces—View the power transmitted and received for optical pluggables and other data related to incoming and outgoing traffic at the interfaces. Any alerts and alarms related to the interfaces are also listed. See Interfaces Data and Test Results.

  • Software—View data such as vendor, software version, device model, SIRT advisories, and so on related to the software installed on the device. See Software Data and Test Results.

  • Configuration—View the configuration version, compliance of the committed configuration with Center for Internet Security (CIS) standards, and compliance score of the configuration. See Configuration Data and Test Results.

  • Routing—View data related to the routing protocols. See Routing Data and Test Results.

  • Connectivity—View data related to connectivity of the device with neighbors, Internet endpoints, cloud providers, and edge devices. See Device Connectivity Data and Tests Results.

After all the checks are completed and if no issues are found, you can move the device to production and allow traffic to flow through the device.

To enable the device to carry production traffic, on top-left corner of the page, under the hostname, click Put Into Service and select Put Into Service Now. The Status of the device changes to In Service. The device is now deployed in the network and the device can allow the flow of live traffic.

You can continue monitoring the device from this page for details of any alerts and alarms that might be raised during production.
