Cisco UCS Central collects the inventory details from all registered Cisco UCS domains. You can view and monitor the components in the registered Cisco UCS domains from the domain management panel.
When a Cisco UCS domain is successfully registered, Cisco UCS Central starts collecting the following details:
- Physical Inventory
- Service profiles and service profile templates
- Fault information
The default data collection interval is 10 minutes. You can customize the interval based on your requirements. If the connection between Cisco UCS domain and Cisco UCS Central fails, whenever the disconnected Cisco UCS domain is detected again, Cisco UCS Central start collecting current data and displays in the domain management panel.
The General tab in Domain Management panel, displays a list of registered Cisco UCS domains. You can click on the tabs to view details on each component. You can also launch the individual Cisco UCS Manager or the KVM console for a server from this panel.
Service Profiles and Templates
You can view a complete list of service profiles and service profile templates available in the registered Cisco UCS domains from the Servers tab. The Service Profile panel displays a aggregated list of the service profiles. Service profiles with the same name are grouped under the organizations they are assigned to. Instance count next to the service profile name will provide the number of times that particular service profile is used in Cisco UCS domains.
From the Service Profile Template panel, you can view the available service profile templates, organization and the number of times each service profile template is used in the Cisco UCS Domain.
