Monitor Cisco Port-channel ports


#1

I’m looking for a solution to monitor the port-channel ports (members) and get alerted when one member of the Po is down or it’s suspended.

I managed to create an alert rule for the whole Po but this is not enough for me, i want to be informed when one of the Po members has issues also.

Actual my alert rule look like this for the Po:
ports.ifDescr LIKE ‘Port-channel%’ AND macros.port_down = 1

The option to add each port one-by-one to monitor and get be alerted is not acceptable for me, because we manage more 100 of switches and it’s waste of time to add the members manually to monitor.

I’m looking for an automatically solution.

thanks for any suggestion.

Quick update.
For a workaround, i have assinged the same description to all the port-channel ports and i’m monitoring it with this rule:
ports.ifAlias = “!Important Trunk Link - Don’t disable!” AND macros.port_down = 1

This is not what i was looking for so if anybody has a better idea, feel free to add your thoughts.
