I have questions about CVP and CVW NTP.

Hi, The current situation is that three cloud vision units are clustered and cvw capabilities are up. cvp has a synchronized ntp, so cvp on the web has a good time. However, cvw has a UTC time zone, so the log times do not match. I have a question here. 1. Are CVW time-related settings dependent on CVP? Or is it possible to set it separately in CVW? 2. The timezone in CVW is UTC, can I change it to Asia/Seoul time zone? If you can change it, please tell me how. 3. Does changing time-related settings affect clustering or...

However i have done to configure the monitoring connection into the device i would like to monitor.   Could you have help us to resolve the issue?   Thank in advance     Regards     Robma Bayu

CVP Telemetry for non-Arista devices

Hi All, Quick question on Telemtry part, I understand CVP uses Telemetry protocol and gets data stored in Sysdb of Arista switches. Wondering, can Telemetry be supported for non-Arista devices which support gRPC protocol. If it is supported, what kind of licenses to be purchased If not supported, what functionalities that CVP can offer to non-Arista devices and what license to be procured for this   Thanks in advance

CVP DR design

Wondering, where can I get more design options for CVP disaster recovery design. Let’s say I have CVP VM’s hosted in one site and how do I make sure that data is recovered in new sites in case of disaster. I am think some options like SRM from VMware but any inbuilt features will be appreciated If I have CVP’s hosted in multiple sites, can I manage them using single global UI ? Is this feature available or in pipeline? Thanks in advance.

BFD session telemetry

Description BFD (Bidirectional Forwarding Detection) session telemetry allows for the collection of per-session statistics as well as rbfd kernel module statistics to be automatically collected at a set interval and stored in shared memory where Cloud Vision Portal (CVP) or other applications may gather them.  Previously, this information was only available to the user via execution of several CLI show-commands.  In addition, several new statistics have been added which are updated within the session-stats interval and provide a finer “snapshot” view of session health than the previously-available session lifetime statistics.  This feature supports both hardware-accelerated and software (kernel module) accelerated...

Omnibox for in-product search

This TOI covers the new Omnibox feature released in 2020.3.0 The Omnibox allows users to search across all sections in Cloudvision from anywhere in the app. Search results from different sections are listed and refined as more keywords are added to the query. Selecting a result will navigate to the corresponding section of Cloudvision. There are two ways to access the omnibox. At the top-right of the navigation bar, there is a search icon that will open the omnibox when clicked. Alternatively, inputting the Command ⌘ + K or the Control + K keyboard shortcuts (pressing both keys at once) will open...

CVP Interface Utilization/Rates & Interface Load Intervals

Hello, I was curious how CVP gets interface utilization/rates from our switches and what the frequency of sampling is. I am curious if interface load intervals on the interfaces have any affect on what CVP gets via streaming telemetry. Example switch(config)#interface ethernet 7 switch(config-if-Et7)#load-interval 60 switch(config-if-Et7)#

Cloud Tracer – Monitor Connectivity

Hello, I was trying to configure monitor connectivity for CVP Cloud Tracer on the switch, but I am missing the interface options as shown in Arista documentation: Arista(s1)(config-mon-connectivity)#[no] interface ? set Name of the interface set Arista(s1)(config-mon-connectivity)#[no] interface set ?

CVP upgrade 2018.2.5 –> 2020.2.1

Is this a valid direct upgrade path from 2018.2.5 directly to 2020.2.1 ?   I just received shipment of a brand spanking new DCA-200 “appliance” aka, Dell server.  It came pre-loaded with CVP 2018.2.5 and we need to run 2020.2.1

Mss fortigate, cvx, cvp and Arista L3LS

Hi master. My customer has infrastructure Arista 2spine and 4leaf. They want to deploy new firewall Fortigate HA = 2 unit and Cloudvison appliance with MSS features. I’m reading and learn concept mss configuration on cvx and Fortigate, but there is something I’m not understanding about config mss on cvx. Arista Macro Segmentation Service integration with Fortinet Firewalls The link at the top, define command on cvx “type Fortinet fortimanager”My customer asks for me, how about not used /without the fortimanager? It is can used mss features, configuration or not?   Please advise and share your experience and link recommended.     Thanks   Robma bayu    

CVP change control failing

Hello, Always the change controls are failing after message “Waiting up to 900 seconds for Terminattr update from: “ But the actual config is updated on the switch and it is streaming properly. Any specific reason for this and how to troubleshoot this?

CVP Configlet Builder – change generated name

Is there a way to control the name of configlets generated by configlet builders? Example: Name of Configlet Builder: “configlet-builder-xyz” When configlets are generated by this they are automatically named : “configlet-builder-xyz_IP-ADDRESS-OF-SWITCH_1“ I would like to be able to dictate the name of the generated configlets, ideally with variables contained in the configlet builder itself. I do see that it seems possible to rename them after they are generated, however I would like to avoid that manual step if possible.

CloudVision and IDE

Is there a way to use a Editor/IDE such as Sublime, PyCharm to Modify and/or deploy Configlets to CVP? I am currently using the Configlet Web Interface and my Configlets are getting bigger. I’d like to try to use an Editor/IDE to edit my Configlets. If you are using an any IDE for CVP Configlets I’d like to hear about your workflow. If you transfer Configlets to CVP via SSH, SFTP or other methods I’d be interested in how you accomplish this. Thanks in advance, Neal

Verify Config out of sync on CVP

Good day,   I want to know whether CVP can verify configuration out of sync in real time. I think CVP can verify configuration out of sync once i check the device’s config manually. (provisioning tab -> right click to device -> view -> config ->back) Can i check the configuration out of sync automatically in real time on CVP?
