About Third-Party Nodes Support for Cisco NIR Application
The Cisco Network Insights for Resources app in Cisco DCNM provides a way to gather data from third-party nodes through Cisco NIR application. The data is acquired through the third-party collector service using REST based EAPI method calls provided by the collector service.
The following telemetry information is collected from third-party nodes in the fabric:
Environmental Statistics—This includes monitoring environmental statistics such as CPU, memory, fan, temperature, and power usage, and storage details of the fabric nodes.
Interface Statistics—This includes monitoring of nodes, interfaces, and protocol statistics on Cisco DCNM and fabric nodes using LLDP and LACP.
Resource Statistics—This includes monitoring software and hardware resources of fabric nodes on Cisco DCNM using IPv4 unicast, IPv4 multicast, and MAC.
