CISCO-VOA-MIB.mib object view, vendor Cisco

Introduction

Most network devices and programs ship with so-called MIB files to describe the parameters and meanings (i.e.: friendly names) which are available for monitoring via SNMP.
ActiveXperts Network Monitor 2019 can import vendor-specific MIB files, so it can be used to monitor specific OID's (Object Identifiers). This way, you can monitor your devices, computers, etc. by selecting your relevant OID's by name.

ActiveXperts Network Monitor 2019 can import MIB file CISCO-VOA-MIB and use it to monitor vendor specific OID's.

CISCO-VOA-MIB file content

Object view of CISCO-VOA-MIB:

Scalar Object
cVoaEntry .1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.262.1.1.1.1
An entry in the cVoaTable provides objects to configure and control the attenuation level of a VOA at an interface, for a given direction.
Tabular Object
cVoaDirection .1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.262.1.1.1.1.1
This is the second index into the cVoaTable and indicates the direction for which the attenuation level at this interface is being controlled, in this entry.
cVoaAttenuationControlMode .1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.262.1.1.1.1.2
This object is used to set the mode of controlling the attenuation level of a VOA at an interface. When the mode is set to 'manual', the attenuation level is configured manually, by setting the desired attenuation level in the cVoaAttenuation object. The cVoaDesiredPower object does not apply in this case. When the mode is set to 'automatic', the attenuation level is continuously adjusted to maintain a desired power level, after attenuation. The desired optical power level after attenuation is configured using the cVoaDesiredPower object. The cVoaAttenuation object cannot be configured in this case, but it indicates the attenuation level derived from the desired power level. The automatic mode of controlling attenuation should not be used when the monitored power level includes multiple wavelengths, since the power level monitor cannot distinguish between a decrease in power across all wavelengths, versus a loss of power of some but not all wavelengths. If some but not all wavelengths go down, this would cause the attenuation level to be automatically decreased, leading to an increase in the power level of the remaining wavelengths.
cVoaAttenuation .1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.262.1.1.1.1.3
This object indicates the attenuation level applied at the interface. When the cVoaAttenuationControlMode object is set to 'manual', the attenuation level may be specified by setting this object.
cVoaAttenuationLastChange .1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.262.1.1.1.1.4
This object indicates the value of sysUpTime at the last time the attenuation level was adjusted at this interface, in the given direction.
cVoaDesiredPower .1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.262.1.1.1.1.5
This object indicates the desired optical power level, after attenuation, at the interface. This object applies only when the cVoaAttenuationControlMode object is set to 'automatic'. In this mode, the attenuation level is continuously adjusted to maintain the desired power level, after attenuation, as specified by this object.
Table
cVoaTable .1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.262.1.1.1
This table provides objects to configure and control the attenuation on VOAs.
Object Identifier
ciscoVoaMIB .1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.262
This MIB module defines objects to configure and manage the Variable Optical Attenuator (VOA) modules. VOA modules are typically used to attenuate channels added by a network element, in order to equalize the input power of each wavelength before the multiplexed signal consisting of all wavelengths is sent through an EDFA. There may be a separate VOA per channel, one VOA per band of wavelengths, or one VOA for the pass through wavelengths. VOA modules are also often used before terminating optical wavelengths at optical receivers, in order to avoid receiver saturation. The VOAs may be present on various modules within the network element, for example, on an Optical Add/Drop Multiplexer (OADM) module, on the same module as an optical transceiver, or on a separate module of its own.
