Qapp Output to Report or Filtered Table
Hello all. Just wanted to post here to see if this is even possible. I have a Qapp that creates a CSV file with specific fields. The purpose is to create a filtered table or report that shows all of our network switches and the amount of unused interfaces. The CSV just has all the raw data. I would still need to create some logic that says interface status is either “down” or “administratively down”, the last input is over a year or never, and the media type is one of many options (example: 10/100/1000BaseTX) as I want to exclude fiber interfaces. For each row in the CSV, I want to just count these. Then, ideally, the report would simply show 2 columns.Column 1 Column 2Switch 1 Name Number of Unused PortsSwitch 2 Name Number of Unused PortsDoes anyone know if this can be accomplished within NetBrain or would I just need to utilize something external and work with the raw CSV data?Thanks.
Is there a way to have NB run CLI in privilege mode?
I am trying the following command: “show platform hardware fed active fwd-asic resources tcam utilization” on cisco 9000 series switches. The problem is it is a command that is used in the enable mode, but NB treats it like a user. Is there a way to have NB setup cli commands in enable mode? I understand its not normal commands like show run or show log, but for the commands that are needing this privilege mode is there a way to set NB to use the proper mode?
Device Property mass updates
I created a device property for Last date of Support for old hardware for all devices in netbrainthru Tenent, GDR Data. I can see the device propery at the end of the device propertiesand I can popout and edit the last date of support for 1 device and save with no issue.How do I update more than 1 device at a time. Thanks,Tony
Default Data Source
Does the live regularly in this example pull stats every 2 mins for 10 times and then get the final results. Or does it pull it the 5 times and dumps into 1 report? Or is the live reg option mainly for cli related tasks? “Live Regularly — log in to the device to retrieve live data regularly based on the customized frequency. You can check the Repeat checkbox and enter a number to set the execution times for this Qapp.I am trying to run a utilization report on my routers and wanted to get a better understanding of the Live Regularly option. I am using SNMP to pull the stats. The issue I am running into is its creating a csv report per run. I tried using the “Live Regularly” option and the schedule Qapp option, but I am not seeing much of a difference in outputs. I also made the csv file “adv” feature to append. Is there a way to have 1 csv file per day? If I ran this check 1 hr per day that’s 24 reports * 30 days = 720 reports and if I increased that 6 reports per hour. It gets a bit
Email Alert settings for Windows/Linux Server or MongoDB server in Disconnected state
Can some one help me out with the procedure to configure an email alert system that can notify a NetBrain Admin when either the MongoDB Server or Windows/Linux Server gets disconnected as displayed in the Service Monitor? Thanks!
How do I access the built-in Device/Module/Interface Properties in Qapps
How do I access the built-in Device/Module/Interface Properties in Qapps such as:ManagementIP()Model()Vendor()SerialNumber()Instead of writing my own Parser(s), I would like to retrieve these values from the built-in Device Property Attributes. See page 207-213 for list of Device/Interface/Module Property attributes listed in PDF “How_to_Define_and_Use_Procedures.PDF” at Netbrain’s website: https://www.netbraintech.com/ftp/EE54G/How_to_Define_and_Use_Procedures.pdf As you can see below, I have a custom variable Column named mgmt_ip. The intent is to get the device’s management ip. I have tried different variations, including calling a function, but without success.Thanks in advance for your help! Best RegardsDavid
Identifying Virtual wire interfaces
We use Palo Alto firewalls and a few are configured with Virtual Wire interfaces (https://docs.paloaltonetworks.com/pan-os/9-1/pan-os-admin/networking/configure-interfaces/virtual-wire-interfaces). However Netbrain doesn’t identify virtual wire interfaces and won’t add the firewalls to a map. Is there anyway to add a virtual wire interface either through the discovery or added manually? Thanks.
How do I validate configurations in our environment to ensure consistency.
Can anyone advise if there is a way to validate a base configuration to other like devices to ensure compliance and our standards are being followed.For example, I have a device or model that I would like to ensure all other devices are identical such asLogging AAA/TACACS ACL’s NTPMy approach, which doesn’t seem to be working was Create a Parser to capture Configuration for text fields that I would like to ensure are consistent. Create a NI for prior fields that need to match. Created a specific test group for selected devices.However, when I run the NI, it only compares the fields that I selected to the previous baseline for the device, not the device I want it to model.Any advise or direction appreciated. Thanks.
How do I make a NI as a blank template so it can be easily reused?
Am I missing something, There doesn’t seem to be an easy way to duplicate a preexisting NI to another device?I created a parser for a select device, built a NI based on said parser everything looks good with output that can be mirrored to other devices, however if saved as template the original device that was used is listed.If I then open it and duplicate NI for needed device then remove the original it will works, If I use the NI I built and load into as a Network Intent Cluster, I can run the same NI on multiple devices that I specific in a particular device group.I want to be able to have someone to have the ability to add said NI to any Runbook on a dynamic map they built and add NI to their map without the original device created from the parser.Can anyone advise if this is possible or direct me in the right direction. Any help is appreciated. Thanks :)
Export Search results
How can I get a report (or be able to add them all to a device group )with the devices that meet certain criteria ? Such as…A: Device Type Matches any Cisco IOS SwitchB: Config File Contains "snmp-server host 220.127.116.11"C: Hostname Contains ^bBoolean Expression: A and B and C The Global Search does find them but I cant seem to get them as a group as its >20 devicesor “ Display the most relevant 200 results only due to the limited web page. “ Basically I am trying to get a list of devices on our network that have B:
Chain multiple comands in a qapp/parser in one cli session
Hello all, I would like to write an parser/qapp for a fortinet to capture some packets.Here a chain of commands is used to archieve a packet sniff. diagnose debug flow filter port 443 ##Define Filterdiagnose debug flow show function-name enablediagnose debug flow show iprope enablediagnose debug flow trace start 20diagnose debug enablediagnose debug disablediagnose debug flow filter clear ## Output start, need to be captured##cleanupdiagnose debug disablediagnose debug flow filter clearThe flow must be in the same CLI session (I already tried to use a standalone parser for each step)On the fortinet box itself it is not possible to chain commands.Is that possible?
API call stub make a path and run a runbook with variable data on top
Hello all, I do an API call to create a path (working well) and would like to run a runbook/qapp on the dynamic created map.In the stub manager there is the possibility to add a runbook. The runbook itself is been put to the map and can be run manually.But how could it be made with a variable input and a outomatical run? I already tried $destination to set as the input in the field Filter, as the varibale already exist in the “Map Creation” section but it is not taken as a variable. The goal is make a path with source-destination , run the paket capture on the created map with the filter set on the destination address.
is there QAPP Center link
I am wondering if there is a way to access applications like qapp center without using the menu drop down? I understand there is the “pin the application” to the desktop option but is there another way? I am thinking of a url like what we might see with inventoryreport. It can be loaded to a new tab but something like Qapp Center seems to only be in the drop down application section or pin. When we were using v8 we didn’t have this problem because the application search was in a different section. We are using Netbrain V10.1.5. Any ideas?
Network Health Runbooks
Does anyone have a runbook they can share made specifically for network health checks? I know how to put together a runbook with CLI commands to show CPU utilization or check for interface errors but was wondering if anyone got creative and made some Qapps or other elements in a runbook to accomplish this that I am not thinking of.On a side note, is there any place that NB users can submit their own custom made stuff?
Configuration change CLI commands
Hello! Is there a way to run configuration change CLI commands (for example “conf t” → “banner login ‘some banner’” → “exit” → “copy running-config startup-config”)? I saw that you can run show type CLI commands through benchmarks, but the config change ones don’t seem to work. Thank you
Rate Limiting Automation Library
Hello everyone, My network has a couple of sites, which were having download/upload speed issues. We checked everything on our ISP, it wasnt them. After running the Highlight MTU Interface QAPP we realized some MTU mismatches which fixed the issues after matching them.But one site is still having the issue, I am checking the sites’ configs but is are there any automation library that checks rate limiting, or give me a good overall health for the site. So far I have tried the Overall Health View, nothing stands out, MTU matches. I’d like to have a real in-depth look to the entire network on the site.Thank you. 6
How to create sitemap using deviceid
How to create sitemap using deviceid, mapSettingHelper.build_site_map_setting("device_id", false) as there may be possibilities of duplicate hostname.If I refer “Defining Event Templates to Process Events in NetBrain” in help it is giving# create mapmap_setting = mapSettingHelper.build_site_map_setting("device_name", False) #replace with a real device or device parameter in raw dataIn this case what are the device parameters we can use other than hostname
UUID file is missing on this Linux instance after migrating the NetBrain DB Server from old Cluster to new.
This is a transcript of the outcome of a Tech Support call with NetBrain and I: I just want to specify that it is the file in /sys/class/dmi/id/product_uuid that is missing and it is the system uuid that is missing not a filesystem uuid…!!Has anyone ever come across this before after migrating their DB Server and are then forced to reactivate the licence…!? My colleague and I have thought about the following: CHMOD 777 the full PATH and then create a new ‘product_uuid’ file with the legit licensed key and as the issue we face at the moment is that the if you try to amend inside that directory using ‘ROOT Credentials’ you receive the following error = ‘Operation is prohibited’
Compliance and NGFW Policy Audit?
Has anyone done NFGW Policy Audit with NetBrain automation (Rule Compliance, Access Compliance, Configuration Compliance) ?NetBrain collects the configuration, but there doesn't seem to be a build-in check relevant for businesses.Deleting unused rules also needs log information, but perhaps doable? SD-WAN, NFGW, and Cloud FW are usually under the special control and ownership of companies, i.e., there is interest, while the operator holds the WAN configuration. Even outsourced FW management, business need to audit compliance regulary. Of course, one option is to choose a separate FW Policy audit software, but if you have all config and digital twin it could be part of NB solution by default?
