I am observing incorrect memory utilization within Traverse for my Cisco IOS-XE router.
It is observed that Cisco IOS-XE routers may be reporting incorrect memory utilization on OID '.22.214.171.124.126.96.36.199.188.8.131.52.1.12' (cpmCPUMemoryUsed) due to Cisco bug #CSCuc40262.
It is recommended that if high memory utilization is observed when it should not, to update the OID to use '.184.108.40.206.220.127.116.11.18.104.22.168.1.27' (cpmCPUMemoryCommitted) instead.
To update the OID to use cpmCPUMemoryCommitted, please review the following steps:
- Copy and paste the OID property from the test configuration page into a text editor, it should look something like:
.22.214.171.124.126.96.36.199.188.8.131.52.1.12.7, where the last digit ('7' in this case) is the index of the entity.
- Validate the device reports/exposes a value for cpmCPUMemoryCommitted and that it corresponds to the same entity (index):
- Open a command prompt on the DGE(or -X) directly monitoring the device
- Run (assumes SNMPv2):
snmpwalk -Oefqnt -v 2c -c XYZ n.n.n.n .184.108.40.206.220.127.116.11.18.104.22.168.1.27
where XYZ is the community string and n.n.n.n is the IP/host address
- You should get an output like:
.22.214.171.124.126.96.36.199.188.8.131.52.1.27.7 1741532, where the first column is the exact OID path and the second column being the value of cpmCPUMemoryCommitted for index '7'.
Note: We are reviewing the information further to determine if a separate signature or test should be included specifically for this case.
