Optical Monitoring
« on: January 22, 2018, 05:44:16 PM »
A question for you experts. Would you agree to monitor send and receive signal strength would be the most important?
Also, would it suffice to test against a minimum threshold or do we need to test against a maximum threshold as well?

I'm looking at getting this feature into 1.8, but I don't want to snmpwalk more OIDs than absolutely necessary...

Another open issue, do I assign the optics to the interfaces or the modules? Depending on equipment vendor one is easier than the other. However, I lean towards modules because the DB structure won't need changing and would be more efficient (rather than adding unused fields on thousands of copper ports).
