Display Board-Level Voltages (SNMP)

Note - The entity numbers used in this procedure are for example only. Your entity numbers might differ, depending on the switch firmware and configuration.

Note - The voltage values displayed for this procedure are in millivolts.

  1. Determine the entity number of the voltage sensor.

    See Display the Entity Numbers.

  2. Display the basic board-level voltage data.
    $ snmpget -v2c -c public mc_IP SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorCurrent.number

    where number is the entity number.

    For example, to display the current 3.3 VDC voltage, use the entity number respective to the /SYS/MB/V_3.3VMain voltage sensor target. This example uses entity number 4:

    $ snmpget -v2c -c public mc_IP SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorCurrent.4
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorCurrent.4 = INTEGER: 3249

    The 3.3 VDC voltage displayed in the output of the example is 3249 millivolts, or 3.249 volts.

  3. Display comprehensive board-level voltages.
    $ snmpwalk -v2c -c public mc_IP SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorTable
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorBaseUnits.4 = INTEGER: volts(6)
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorBaseUnits.6 = INTEGER: volts(6)
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorBaseUnits.7 = INTEGER: volts(6)
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorBaseUnits.8 = INTEGER: volts(6)
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorBaseUnits.10 = INTEGER: volts(6)
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorBaseUnits.11 = INTEGER: volts(6)
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorBaseUnits.13 = INTEGER: volts(6)
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorBaseUnits.15 = INTEGER: volts(6)
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorExponent.4 = INTEGER: -3
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorExponent.6 = INTEGER: -3
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorExponent.7 = INTEGER: -3
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorExponent.8 = INTEGER: -3
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorExponent.10 = INTEGER: -3
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorExponent.11 = INTEGER: -3
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorExponent.13 = INTEGER: -3
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorExponent.15 = INTEGER: -3
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorRateUnits.4 = INTEGER: none(1)
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorRateUnits.6 = INTEGER: none(1)
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorRateUnits.7 = INTEGER: none(1)
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorRateUnits.8 = INTEGER: none(1)
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorRateUnits.10 = INTEGER: none(1)
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorRateUnits.11 = INTEGER: none(1)
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorRateUnits.13 = INTEGER: none(1)
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorRateUnits.15 = INTEGER: none(1)
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorCurrent.4 = INTEGER: 3266
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorCurrent.6 = INTEGER: 3351
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorCurrent.7 = INTEGER: 11965
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorCurrent.8 = INTEGER: 5018
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorCurrent.10 = INTEGER: 3213
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorCurrent.11 = INTEGER: 2527
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorCurrent.13 = INTEGER: 1784
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorCurrent.15 = INTEGER: 1216
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorRestoreDefaultThresholds.4 = INTEGER: reset(1)
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorRestoreDefaultThresholds.6 = INTEGER: reset(1)
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorRestoreDefaultThresholds.7 = INTEGER: reset(1)
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorRestoreDefaultThresholds.8 = INTEGER: reset(1)
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorRestoreDefaultThresholds.10 = INTEGER: reset(1)
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorRestoreDefaultThresholds.11 = INTEGER: reset(1)
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorRestoreDefaultThresholds.13 = INTEGER: reset(1)
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorRestoreDefaultThresholds.15 = INTEGER: reset(1)
  4. Look through the output for the entity numbers respective to the voltage sensors.

    You can also filter the output of the snmpwalk command for a specific entity number. This is an example of filtering the snmpwalk command output:

    $ snmpwalk -v2c -c public mc_IP SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorTable |grep -F ’.number =’

    where number is the entity number.

    Note - The manner in which you can filter the output varies according to your operating system.

    To filter voltage information for the 3.3 VDC main voltage, use the entity number respective to the /SYS/MB/V_3.3VMain voltage sensor target. This filtering example uses entity number 4:

    $ snmpwalk -v2c -c public mc_IP SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorTable |grep -F ’.4 =’
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorBaseUnits.4 = INTEGER: volts(6)
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorExponent.4 = INTEGER: -3
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorRateUnits.4 = INTEGER: none(1)
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorCurrent.4 = INTEGER: 3266
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorNormalMin.4 = INTEGER: 0
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorNormalMax.4 = INTEGER: 255
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorAccuracy.4 = INTEGER: 0
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorLowerThresholdNonCritical.4 = INTEGER: 3112
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorUpperThresholdNonCritical.4 = INTEGER: 3402
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorLowerThresholdCritical.4 = INTEGER: 3060
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorUpperThresholdCritical.4 = INTEGER: 3454
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorLowerThresholdFatal.4 = INTEGER: 2958
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorUpperThresholdFatal.4 = INTEGER: 3539
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorHysteresis.4 = Gauge32: 0
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorEnabledThresholds.4 = BITS: FC lowerThresholdNonCritical(0) upperThresholdNonCritical(1) lowerThresholdCritical(2) upperThresholdCritical(3) lower
    SUN-PLATFORM-MIB::sunPlatNumericSensorRestoreDefaultThresholds.4 = INTEGER: reset(1)
