Facebook Backpack Integration
Keep the following issues in mind if you intend to use NetQ with a Backpack chassis:
You must assign a unique hostname to every node that runs the NetQ Agent. By default, all the fabric cards in the chassis have the same hostname.
The NetQ Agent must be installed on every line card.
No information is returned about the ASIC when you run
netq show inventory asic. This is a known issue.
Since the chassis sensor information is shared among, every line card and fabric card can report the same sensor data. By default, sensor data is disabled on a chassis. To enable sensor data on a line card, edit
/etc/cts/netq/config.d/user.ymland set the
send_chassis_sensor_datakeyword to true, then restart the NetQ Agent with
netq config agent restart. This prevents any duplication of data in the NetQ database.
