I'm working to standardize how our company presents information about memory, CPUs, etc. Host-Resources MIB contains this info, but it is designed for host management, and it is very ambiguous. Is there a better standard mib for representing HR type information for a switch or router? Is there a BCP someplace?
Which memory systems should be included in hrMemorySize? Should we list every memory system on the board or only certain memory systems? Should the processors only represent the ones responsible for management functions, or every CPU in the system?
I'm interested in understanding the recommended approach to representing total memory and memory used, CPUs and CPU load, storage and storage used and so on.
The goal is to provide the information in a format most useful to management applications. Which types of resources are reported by other device vendors? Which types of resource listings are actually used by vendor-independent software applications?
I've looked through the SNMP books I own, but didn't find any answers that helped to clarify what should be reported in a vendor-neutral manner. Anybody have any recomendations for a book that deals with this issue?
