Integrate with Hardware Chassis
Keep the following issues in mind if you intend to use NetQ with a 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, every line card and fabric card can report the same sensor data. By default, sensor data is disabled on a chassis to avoid this duplication . To enable sensor data on a line card, edit
/etc/netq/config.d/user.ymland set the
send_chassis_sensor_datakeyword to true, then restart the NetQ Agent with
netq config agent restart. Configuring NetQ in this way prevents any duplication of data in the NetQ database.
