Getting Info from Cisco 6800 Switches
« on: October 11, 2017, 05:08:30 PM »
We can get data from 6800 switches connected to a fex, regarding MAC address and IP address... but we can't get information on what port the MAC address is connected to. Port syntax looks like gi/101/1/0/1. I wonder if my product is expecting only 3 digits and 2 slashes, like 2/0/4. Any guidance on this?

ya really don't want to connect your big iron to FEX, save that for servers and appliances. as we've discussed in the past lots of issues with those FEX,   memory limitations on the 2100's and that quirky bug I had earlier in the year on that firewall not populating the ARP table from a connected 6K, just to mention a few.  BTW, I cannot answer your question.

In a way, you have. If other gear has the same issue, then that points at some use case limitations.

Welcome to devops or basically how to parse text to json and vice versa
You're just dealing with a parsing issue with fex numbering and your schema needs to take that into account
