Device uptime too high for Cisco

Vendor

Cisco

Description

Indeni will alert when a device's uptime is too high

Remediation Steps

Upgrade the device. You may also change the alert's threshold, or disable the alert completely, if not needed.

1. Use the "show version" NX-OS command to display the current system uptime.

2. Run the "show system reset-reason" to check the reason for the last reboot of the device.

3. Check if the installed NX-OS version is supported and review it for software bugs.

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.
