Usage Instructions

Step 1: Add this Host Template

Add the Network - Cisco ACI - APIC Cluster Host Template to your Opsview Monitor host. If the resource you're monitoring has no hostname or public IP, then open the Advanced settings pane and change Host Check Command to Always assumed to be UP.

For more information, refer to Opsview Knowledge Center - Adding Host Templates to Hosts.

Step 2: Add and configure variables required for this Host Template

The Service Checks in this Host Template use the following variables, and they will be added to your Opsview Monitor instance when you import the Opspack:

ACI_CREDENTIALS

The Value is not used and therefore can be set to anything. Override the arguments with your credentials.

Parameter Position in Variable Name Description
--api-server-url Arg1 ACI API Server URL The server URL for your Cisco ACI
--username Arg2 ACI Username The username for your Cisco ACI
--password Arg3 ACI Password The password for your Cisco ACI

For more information, refer to Opsview Knowledge Center - Adding Variables to Hosts.

For mode-specific help, run the plugin with the -h -m flags. This will list the required and optional Variable Arguments for that mode. The appropriate mode for each Service Check is listed here:

Service Check Name Mode
ACI - APIC Cluster - Average CPU Usage ACI.Cluster.CPU
ACI - APIC Cluster - Total Memory Free ACI.Cluster.Memory
ACI - APIC Cluster - Health State ACI.Cluster.Health

SSL Certificates

Additionally, if ssl verification is required, you can use the following variable to pass in your SSL certificates for use when connecting to the service provider to gather metrics:

ACI_CERTIFICATES

The Value is not used and therefore can be set to anything. Override the arguments with your certificates.

Parameter Position in Variable Name Description
--ca-path Arg1 CA Certificate Path Path to the CA Certificate. Optional, only required if server verification is needed
--client-cert Arg2 Client Certificate Path Path to the Client Certificate. Optional, only required if client verification is needed
--client-key Arg3 Client Key Path Path to the Client Key. Optional, only required if client verification is needed

Step 3: Apply changes and the system will now be monitored
