What does the SNMP Trap FRU-ctrl do?

Hi All,

Actually i was just going through the list of traps enabled on one of my customers device and understanding on what kind of information it provides so that we can fine tune them by removing the unwanted ones.

Actually there is a snmp-trap enable for something called fru-trap. It is a CIsco 6506 device and i am not sure what it is, based on the search in google i came to know it is some kind of Power supply related traps. But one of the trap we trap for this shows me something like the below. What is that interface got to do with power envoirnment variable? Would be of great help if you can share some knowledge of what is FRU? and then we will be able to decide if it is of any importance to monitor them.

cefcPowerStatusChange cefcFRUPowerOperStatus:=ok cefcFRUPowerAdminStatus:=inlineAuto entPhysicalName=Gi2/1 ( Flapping Event )

1 Solution
FRU = field replaceable unit (a circuit board or part that can be quickly and easily removed and replaced by the user or by a technician)

The trap is a notification that the status of a field replaceable unit changes. It can be sent in situations like a failed fan.

See: http://tools.cisco.com/Support/SNMP/do/BrowseOID.do?local=en&translate=Translate&objectInput=

"The cefcFRUPowerStatusChange notification indicates that
the power status of a FRU has changed. The varbind for this
notification indicates the entPhysicalIndex of the FRU,
and the new operational-status of the FRU."

cefcPowerStatusChange cefcFRUPowerOperStatus:=ok  cefcFRUPowerAdminStatus:=inlineAuto entPhysicalName=Gi2/1 ( Flapping Event )

means you receive a cefcPowerStatusChange trap with two trap components cefcFRUPowerOperStatus (everything OK) and cefcFRUPowerAdminStatus (power is OK) from a FRU (interface Gi2/1)
