Access Nexus-specific information in NPM

To display Nexus-specific details, the device must be monitored in NPM and CLI polling must be enabled. See Set up monitoring for Cisco Nexus devices in NPM.

  1. In the SolarWinds Platform Web Console, navigate to the Node Details view for a monitored Nexus device.

  2. For an overview about the health of interfaces on the device, review the Health Summary widget.

  3. For more details about interfaces, click the Interfaces subview in the subviews menu on the left. The Interfaces subview lists monitored interfaces on the device, together with their in and out utilization, or errors in the last hour.

    To go to the Interfaces subview, you can also click a status group number on the Health Summary widget. The Interfaces subview opens, filtered by the status you clicked.

  4. Use the filter and search options to quickly find more details about any interface on the Nexus node.

  5. Click the vPCs subview to list virtual port channels connected to the monitored Nexus device, together with the interface and the peer vPC details.
