Situation

Why are the 'DeviceReboot' and 'InterfaceState' Knowledge Scripts considered to be generic?

Resolution

DeviceReboot Knowledge Script

Every SNMP Device maintains a sysUpTime.0 attribute that contains a value representing how long the device has been up in CentiSeconds. The DeviceReboot script monitors this value and can raise an event if a device is down or has rebooted. Since any device can be ?up? or ?down?, the DeviceReboot script is generic.

InterfaceStateKnowledge Script

Every SNMP Device must have at least one interface that connects it to the network. The InterfaceState script monitors device interfaces and can create events when an interface goes up/down; or when its administrative state and operational status do not match. Since every SNMP Device must have at least one network interface, the InterfaceState script is generic.
