Configuring VNMC Profiles

Configuring VNMC Profiles

This chapter includes the following sections:

VNMC Profiles

Cisco VNMC profiles are configurable.

In Cisco VNMC, there is a default profile that exists. Default profiles are system generated and can be modified, but they cannot be deleted. The administrator can add syslog policies, core policies, fault policies, log policies, and the time zone. DNS and NTP policies can be created also. Configured policies can be assigned to the VNMC profile.

In the VNMC profile, there is a pre-configured DNS domain name when the system is configured at boot configuration. That domain is displayed in the Cisco VNMC instance. New DNS domains cannot be created. However the domain name description can be modified.

Cisco VNMC does not support the creation of additional VNMC profiles.

Policies in VNMC Profiles

You can create multiple policies and assign them to the VNMC profile. Policies for the VNMC profile are created and deleted on the VNMC Profile tab. Policies can be assigned to the VNMC profile. VNMC profile uses name resolution to resolve policy assignments. For details, see Name Resolution in a Multi-tenancy Environment.

The following policies created under root only, in the Device Policies area, will be visible in the VNMC profile:
  • Core file policy
  • Fault policy
  • Logging policy
  • Syslog policy
Policies created under root are visible to both the VNMC profile and the Device profile.

DNS server, NTP server and domain names can be assigned as inline policies. A time zone setting can also be assigned to the profile.

When the system boots up, the following policies already have existing default policies:
  • Fault policy
  • Logging policy
  • Syslog policy
The default policies cannot be deleted but may be modified.

Configuring Policies

          Flapping Interval spinbox

          Flapping occurs when a fault is raised and cleared several times in rapid succession. To prevent this, the system does not allow a fault to change its state until this amount of time has elapsed since the last state change.

          If the condition reoccurs during the flapping interval, the fault returns to the active state. If the condition does not reoccur during the flapping interval, the fault is cleared. What happens at that point depends on the setting in the Clear Faults Retention Action field.

          The number of hours, minutes, and seconds that should pass before the system allows a fault to change its state.

          The default flapping interval is 10 seconds.

          Clear Faults Retention Action drop-down list

          The state of the clear faults retention action. It can be one of the following states:
          • retain—Retains the cleared faults section.
          • delete—The system immediately deletes all fault messages as soon as they are marked as cleared.

          Clear Faults Retention Interval radio-button

          The state of the clear faults retention interval. It can be one of the following states:

          • Forever—The system leaves all cleared fault messages regardless of how long they have been in the system.
          • Other—The system displays the dd:hh:mm:ss spinbox for selection of the number of days, hours, minutes, and seconds that should pass before the system deletes a cleared fault message.

          The default retention interval is 1 hour.

          Step 7   Click OK.

          Editing a Fault Policy for a VNMC Profile


          Note


          When the system boots up, a default policy already exists. The default policy cannot be deleted but may be modified.

            Flapping Interval spinbox

            The spinbox that lists flapping intervals. Use the box to set the interval.

            Flapping occurs when a fault is raised and cleared several times in rapid succession. To prevent this, the system does not allow a fault to change its state until this amount of time has elapsed since the last state change.

            The interval is the number of hours, minutes, and seconds that should pass before the system allows a fault to change its state.

            If the condition reoccurs during the flapping interval, the fault returns to the active state. If the condition does not reoccur during the flapping interval, the fault is cleared. What happens at that point depends on the setting in the Clear Faults Retention Action field.

            The default flapping interval is 10 seconds.

            Clear Faults Retention Action drop-down list

            The list that contains fault retention actions. Use the list to set an action. This can be one of the following actions:
            • retain—The system retains fault messages.
            • delete—The system immediately deletes all fault messages as soon as they are marked as cleared.

            Clear Faults Retention Interval radio-button

            The control that sets the retention interval. Use the control to set the interval. This can be one of the following values:

            • forever—The system leaves all cleared fault messages regardless of how long they have been in the system.
            • other—The system displays the dd:hh:mm:ss spinbox for selection of the number of days, hours, minutes, and seconds that should pass before the system deletes a cleared fault message.

            The default retention interval is 1 hour.

            Step 8   Click OK.
