A MIB to configure the Port-Track feature.
When a link goes down, all the services which depend
on the link are notified of the outage. The loss of
this link may be an indirect failure to the end devices
attached to the switch. The concept behind the Port-Track
feature is to create a direct failure on the ports
connected to end devices on event of such indirect
One more ports can be 'tracked' in terms of their
operational status. The cptPortTrackTable lets the user
associate which port(s) need to be tracked to the ports
that will be tracking them.
cptPortForceShutTable, lets the user configure the
forced-shut mode of the linked-port.
A table listing the linked ports and the configurations
of their associated tracked ports. The configuration of
each tracked port includes its interface index as well
as a VSAN index if only one VSAN is to be tracked.
This objects denotes whether a single VSAN is
being tracked on cptPortTrackTrackedPort or
all the VSANs on that port are tracked.
If the set to 'singleVsan', then the VSAN
that will be tracked will be denoted by the
instance of cptPortTrackVsanIndex.
This object is used to create or delete the row.
When creating a row, the object cptPortTrackVsanType
must be specified. If the value of
cptPortTrackVsanType is 'singleVsan' then the
object cptPortTrackVsanIndex also must be
specified. If the value of cptPortTrackVsanType
is 'allVsans', then cptPortTrackVsanIndex should
not be specified in the create request.
The forced-shut state of the linked port.
When all the tracked ports corresponding to
cptPortTrackLinkedPort, go down, cptPortTrackLinkedPort
is brought down. The cptPortForceState, determines
the manner in which this operation is performed.
If 'false', cptPortTrackLinkedPort is brought down
operationally only and is brought up again as
soon as any one of the tracked ports comes up.
If 'true', cptPortTrackLinkedPort is brought down
administratively as well and the user has to
manually bring the port up. i.e. the ifAdminStatus
cptPortTrackLinkedPort needs to be set to 'up'
by the user.
