The Management Pack for Cisco Networking creates Resource Kinds and Relationships (associations) for critical resources in your Cisco Networking environment.
Performance, health, and availability data are collected for the following Cisco Networking resource kinds:
- VSAN (MDS only)
- L3 Interface (Nexus/Catalyst only)
- HSRP Group (Nexus/Catalyst only)
- HSRP Group Member (Nexus/Catalyst only)
Relationships among discovered resources are also created by the Management Pack. The hierarchical structure of those relationships are depicted in the diagrams below.
