Hardware element down-gigamon-GigaVUE-OS
Alert if any hardware elements are not operating correctly.
Troubleshoot the hardware element as soon as possible.
How does this work?
Using the “show cards” command and parsing the output
Why is this important?
Card failures can only be detected via CLI
Without Indeni how would you find this?
Login to the device’s CLI, change to enable mode and issue “show cards”. This will present a table with cards and their statuses.

Check the following to troubleshoot this issue. |1. Run the “show interface transceiver detailed” NX-OS command to display information about the transceivers connected to a specific interface. Besides, this NX-OS command output provides information about the Cisco SFP Product ID (PID). NOTE: In case that have been used 3rd party SFPs it is possible to get an Indeni alert because the current light signal is different than the recommended min/max thresholds defined by Cisco. |2. Use the “show interface transceiver calibrations” NX-OS command to display calibration information for the transceiver interfaces. |3. Consider to enable DOM (if supported). Digital Optical Monitoring or DOM is an industry wide standard, intended to define a SFP to access real-time operating parameters such as Tx power, Rx power etc. More details can be found below: https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/interfaces_modules/transceiver_modules/compatibility/matrix/DOM_matrix.html |4.

Login via ssh to the Fortinet firewall and run the FortiOS command "exec sensor list" to review the status of the hardware components and temperature thresholds. When the flag to the command output is set to 0, the component is working correctly and when flag is set to 1, the component has a problem. The FortiOS command "execute sensor detail" will show extra information such as the low/high thresholds.
