Asset tagging

Description Support for asset tagging aids hardware identification by the use of user-supplied strings. Platform compatibility Fixed systems since release 4.20.5F Modular systems since release 4.21.3F Configuration Asset tags are configured via the CLI or eAPI using the following command: [ no | default ] hardware asset-tag <hardware> <tag> On a fixed system, <hardware> can be either switch or powersupply <1-2>, depending on the power supplies present. On a modular system, it can be chassis, or powersupply, supervisor, fabric, or linecard, followed by a slot number. The current configuration can be viewed with the show command: show hardware asset-tag [ <hardware>...

Timeout parameter for eAPI requests

Description Some monitoring tools have a limited time to receive information from the switch and may break if waiting for a response for too long. To avoid this, an additional, optional parameter has been added to the eAPI requests. requestTimeout (Float) Specifying it may cause the request to get interrupted and return prematurely. This may be useful in situations where the issuer of the request is blocking and needs to unblock within a certain amount of time. Should the time limit be exceeded, the response will contain the expected messages from any commands executed before the timeout had occurred, followed by an...

Platform compatibility Fixed systems since release 4.20.5F.Modular systems since release 4.22.0F. Configuration Asset tags are configured via the CLI or eAPI using the following command: [ no | default ] hardware asset-tag <hardware> <tag> On a fixed system, <hardware> can be either switch or powersupply <1-2>, depending on the power supplies present. On a modular system, it can be chassis, or powersupply, supervisor, fabric, or linecard, followed by a slot number.
