Airwave custom device customization
I have airwave polling my apc ups, multiple windows/linux/mac servers and even a network connected enviorment grapher from netbotz. Trouble is, airwave only pulls the nic utilization, which is great for network and uptime trending, but it could be so much more with a few tweaks. why can't i poll cpu / memory utilization etc
The custom device in airwave doesn't have any options to customize the device. Custom should be it's own catagory with me being ableto define types of devices within the catagory. Like...
And every custom device type could haeve it's own oids loaded against it. No reason i can't find the oid for windows cpu utilization, specify the graph type and have airwave log it. UPS battery runtime? Temperatures? There could be a new catagory on airheads for a repository of custom device types so we all dont have to replicaqte each others work.
Then i would love the ability to put those devices in my idf frames in visualrf and have the devices all linked up with a way to have a custom graphic loaded over say a 2u linux server.
It's so close to this already. I think a bit of flexibilty and more of a power user feel in the custom devices would go a long way to make airwave that much more of a complete network management tool.
