Device restarted (uptime low) for Cisco

Vendor

Cisco

Description

Indeni will alert when a device has restarted.

Remediation Steps

Determine why the device was restarted.

1. Use the "show version" or "show system reset-reason" NX-OS commands to display the reason for the reload.

2. Use the "show cores" command to determine if a core file was recorded during the unexpected reboot.

3. Run the "show process log" command to display the processes and if a core was created.

4. With the show logging command, review the events that happened close to the time of reboot.

How does this work?

This script logs in to the Cisco Nexus switch using SSH and retrieves the output of the "show version" command. The output includes the device's uptime as well as additional hardware and software related details.

Without Indeni how would you find this?

The administrator would have to manually log into the Nexus switch and run the "show version" NX-OS command to review the uptime and the last time/reason that it has been reloaded.
