Network interface mtu does not match across cluster members-cisco-asa

Vendor: cisco

OS: asa

Description:
Indeni will identify when two devices are part of a cluster and alert if their network interface mtu are different.

Remediation Steps:
Ensure the network interface mtu setting matches across devices in a cluster.

How does this work?
This script retrieves the interface MTU Setting by polling ifTable via SNMP.

Why is this important?
The Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU) is the maximum frame size that can be sent between two hosts without fragmentation.

Without Indeni how would you find this?
It is possible to poll this data through SNMP.

        can-with-syslog: false
    network-interface-speed:
        why: |
            If the interface speed is set to a low value, this could mean auto-negotiation is not working correctly and the interface does not utilize the full bandwidth available.
        how: |
            This script retrieves the interface speed by polling ifTable via SNMP.

        can-with-syslog: false
    network-interface-mac:
        why: |
            A media access control address (MAC address) is a unique identifier assigned to a network interface.
        how: |
            This script retrieves the interface MAC Address by polling ifTable via SNMP.

        can-with-snmp: true
        can-with-syslog: false
    network-interface-admin-state:
        why: |
           If an interface is disabled and it is a member of a Port Channel, then the link might be running at reduced capacity.
        how: |
            This script retrieves the interface administrative state by polling ifTable via SNMP.
        without-indeni: |
            It is possible to poll this data through SNMP.

    network-interface-state:
        why: |
            Interfaces that should be UP and are DOWN can reduce the resiliance of the systems and cause service disruption.
        how: |
            This script retrieves the interface state by polling ifTable via SNMP.

        why: |
            Capture the interface Received Bytes counter. Knowing the amount of bytes and packets flowing through an interface can help estimate an interface's performance and utilization.
