RMON Probe Configuration Parameters

The RMON probe configuration parameters supported in ExtremeXOS are a subset of the probe configuration group as defined in RFC 2021. The probe configuration group controls and defines the operation of the RMON agent.

You can configure the following objects:

  • probeCapabilities—View the RMON MIB groups supported on at least one interface by the probe.

  • probeSoftwareRev—View the current software version of the monitored device.

  • probeHardwareRev—View the current hardware version of the monitored device.

  • probeDateTime—View the current date and time of the probe. For example, Friday December 31, 2004 at 1:30:15 PM EST is displayed as: 2004-12-31,13:30:15.0

    If the probe is aware of time zones, the display also includes the Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) offset. For example, Friday, December 31, 2004, 1:30:15 PM EST with the offset known is displayed as: 2004-12-31,13:30:15.0, -4.0

    If time information is unavailable or unknown, the time is not displayed.

  • probeResetControl—Restart a managed device that is not running normally. Depending on your configuration, you can do one of the following:
    • Warm boot—A warm boot restarts the device using the current configuration saved in non-volatile memory.
    • Cold boot—A cold boot causes the device to reset the configuration parameters stored in non-volatile memory to the factory defaults and then restarts the device using the restored factory default configuration.
