EMS to IP Manager mapping shows an example of the mapping of physical elements (Router, Card, Interface, Memory Processors, and Network Adapter Redundancy Group), as shown in the Alcatel-Lucent 5620 SAM EMS Equipment View and as they are instantiated in the VMware Smart Assurance IP Manager Domain Managers. In this example, mappings are shown for IP classes such as the following:

  • NE (Network Element) maps to Router or Switch

  • Card (including Base, Daughter, Processor) maps to Card

  • Physical Port maps to Interface

  • LAG (Link Aggregation Group) maps to NARG (Network Adapter Redundancy Group)

  • Fresh Memory maps to Memory

  • Processor (Control Processor, Switch Fabric) maps to Processor.
