Monitored FRUs

System Monitor monitors the absolute state of the following FRUs:

  • Fan
  • Power supply
  • CID card
  • SFP
  • Line card

Possible states for all monitored FRUs are removed, inserted, on, off, and faulty. A state of none indicates the switch is not configured. If the FRU is removed, inserted, or goes into a faulty state, System Monitor sends a RASLog message or an e-mail alert, depending on the configuration.

Based on the configured threshold, each component can be in a marginal state or a down state. If a component is in a marginal state or a down state, System Monitor generates a RASLog message to alert the user. It also generates a separate RASLog message for the overall health of the switch.

NOTE
For details about each RASLog message, refer to the "RAS System Messages" chapter of the Network OS Message Reference.
The following table lists the marginal and down thresholds for components monitored by System Monitor on supported switches.
