Network Protocol Manager for OSPF builds a data model of the discovered OSPF topology objects in its domain. The model, shown in OSPF data model, represents the OSPF objects and certain network objects imported from IP Availability Manager, their relationships, and their connections.

The OSPF objects are represented as instances of the following VMware Smart Assurance ICIM classes:

  • OSPFArea

  • OSPFAreaConfiguration

  • OSPFService

  • OSPFNetwork

  • OSPFInterface

  • OSPFVirtualInterface

  • OSPFNeighborEndpoint

  • OSPFVirtualNeighborEndpoint

  • OSPFNeighborRelationship

  • OSPFVirtualLink

    The VMware Smart Assurance Network Protocol Manager Discovery Guide Supplement provides more information about the OSPF data model. The VMware Smart Assurance Common Information Model (ICIM) 1.11 Reference for Non-Service Assurance Manager Products provides descriptions of ICIM classes, relationships, and connections.
