Simply type into the prompt boxes.The layout is set as a Title Box and Text Box – within the Text Box there are five levels of type:Level 1 – Body text set in Verdana Regular (18pt on 24pt linefeed) with ‘0.5 line’ space below each paragraph.Level 2 – Bulleted body text set in Verdana Regular (18pt on 24pt linefeed) with ‘0.5 line’ space below each paragraph.Level 3 – Bulleted body text (using a horizontal dash) set in Verdana Regular (16pt on 20pt linefeed) with ‘0.5 line’ space below each paragraph.Level 4 – Bulleted body text set in Verdana Regular (15pt on 18pt linefeed) with ‘0.5 line’ space below each paragraph.Level 5 – Bulleted body text (using a horizontal dash) set in Verdana Regular (14pt on 17pt linefeed) with ‘0.5 line’ space below each paragraph.Within standard body text, subheads are set in Verdana Bold at the same size as the body text.Advancing through the text levelsTo advance to each text level from the previous one you can use the ‘Increase Indent’ and ‘Decrease Indent’ buttons on the ‘Formatting’ toolbar in PowerPoint®.While the text position is fixed, the text box will grow as you enter further content in the slide – therefore, care should be taken to keep within the present text box margins.
6What is NetSight Console: NetSight Console is a network SNMP monitoring application.In the I/A series MESH Network environment NetSight has the ability to:Poll SNMP enabled devices.Monitor the networks switch health status via:FlexViewsTopology MapsEvent Logs (Trap and Syslog messaging)Generate system alarming on network events.Aid in troubleshooting of the network.Generate network status, and event reports.Allow for remote monitoring of the network.The deployment of the NetSight Console Server allows up to five (5) simultaneous users (Clients).Numbered text slide [from Slide Master]Numbering can be activated from the button on ‘Formatting’ toolbar in PowerPoint®. The numbering style which you get as a default may not always be the correct format or colour; all numbering should be coloured Green [from the colour palette] and in Verdana Regular.
7NetSight Features: Device Discovery, FlexViews and Topology Mapping 1NetSight Features: Device Discovery, FlexViews and Topology Mapping
8Device Discovery:Select the Discover Networks Button
9Device Discovery:The Discover tool allows you to discover the physical elements (devices) of your network, and add them to the NetSight database. To discover devices on The MESH network, a specified range of IP addresses must be entered.
11FlexViews: The default FlexView is Interface Summary Click to retrieve MIBdata for this viewChoose from among many pre-definedFlexViews or create your ownCall up previously opened FlexViewsRight-click column headers to filter, find, print, export, or hide1111
12FlexViews: Predefined Predefined FlexViews can be found at:c:// Documents and Settings-> Fox -> Application Data -> NetSight -> System -> FlexViews.
14Topology Mapping:Topology Manager lets you expand your view of the devices in the network, making it easier to visualize their physical or logical layout. It allows you to arrange your network in a way that is less abstract, graphically depicting links between devices, and showing device groupings.
16Alarming & Events: Alarm Manager NetSight can be setup to alarm on specific alarm criteria, such as a Trap, and/or Syslog message, message types, or text within the message itself.The alarm can also be setup to run any type of file such as exe, bat, cmd, txt, etc..The data within the message can be added as an argument statement for displaying event details.
17Alarming & Events: Trap Alarm Criteria The settings on this screen show how to setup an alarm for Loop Detection using Trap messaging.
18Alarming & Events: Custom Alarm Criteria The settings on this screen show how to setup an alarm for Loop Protection (LPA) using custom criteria.Syslog Message received:MSTP(1.tMstEvent) Loop Protect Status: PENDING on SID = 0, Port = #.#.# Event Count =1
19Alarming & Events: I/A Alarming via NetSight By utilizing an I/A CIN and IND blocks, NetSight pre-defined Arguments can be passed on to a FoxView or FCSview window.The below bat file script will pass the NetSight Arguments (Device Name, and Message Info) shown in figure. By using the %1 as shown below will send the Switch name “letter bug” to the SWError SN0001 text field, and the %2 send the error message info to the SN0002 text field.With modification of the script, NetSight can also pass (Device IP, SNMP credential, and/or Trap Name).The previous bat file can be modified as follows:Power Online: SWxxPF.bat@echo offSetlocalD:\opt\fox\bin\tools\omsetimp -b TRUE SWT_MON:SWxxPWRFL.IND:\opt\fox\bin\tools\omsetimp -v -s %1 SWT_MON:SWError.SN0001D:\opt\fox\bin\tools\omsetimp -v -s %2 SWT_MON:SWError.SN0002Endlocal
21Event Logs:Event Log manipulationLocation of Event Logs:The Trap and Syslog event logs are located at D:\Program Files\Enterasys Network\NetSight\appdata\logs. The Console event log is located at C:\Document Settings\Fox\Application Data\NetSight\logs; the “Fox” is the user account name when NetSight was installed.The server synchronizes all of the event logs, meaning that the server will log events and makes them available to all the clients connected to the server.
22Switch Configurations required for NetSight Console: 4Switch Configurations required for NetSight Console:
23Switch Configurations required for NetSight Console Functionality: Traps To record and capture Trap Event logs with NetSight each switch within the network must be configured to send these traps. When utilizing SCAS to enable this function the setting shown here circled in red must be entered.Command is as follows:Bold subheadlines [from Slide Master]Subheadlines may be applied in Verdana Bold. These should be the same size as the body text to which they apply and should not use highlight colours or any different styling or type attributes.set snmp targetaddr Admin param snmptarget mask taglist snmptag
24Switch Configurations required for NetSight Console Functionality: Syslog To record and capture Syslog Event logs with NetSight each switch within the network must be configured to send these messages. When utilizing SCAS to enable this function the setting are as shown.Note:The Alarming Severity Level should not be set to 8 (debug) for day to day operations.
25Switch Configurations required for NetSight Console Functionality: SNTP Enabling SNTP time sync is required to sync I/A system time with the NetSight event logs (Console, Trap, Syslog).Note:Event log time stamps saved local to the switch are saved as GMT time. The offset may vary by several hours depending on the GMT offset, shown circled in red.
26NetSight Console Install: When installing NetSight Console on an I/A or FCS workstation refer to B0700EJ.The NetSight Console Server application cannot be installed on workstations running the following applications:1. FCS Galaxy server2. Historian (FCS / AIM*)3. Any I/A Series/FCS workstation running system monitor while hosting a switch or SNMP polled device.4. Domain Controllers (Active Directory)5. FoxAPI6. Message Manager (or any dedicated workstation)Numbered text slide [from Slide Master]Numbering can be activated from the button on ‘Formatting’ toolbar in PowerPoint®. The numbering style which you get as a default may not always be the correct format or colour; all numbering should be coloured Green [from the colour palette] and in Verdana Regular.
