Cisco Device Info (CDI) is a Windows application to retrieve runtime information from Cisco equipment such as routers and switches. This is achieved using the SNMP protocol. Late last week I released version 1.3.0, some important enhancements are as follows:
- Enhanced the way additional columns can be shown (Right-Click table headers). Any column can now be removed from display and Interface index and descriptions can be made visible (not shown by default);
- When hovering over a line on the interface usage chart a tool-tip appears showing the interface name. This is useful for devices with dozens of interfaces;
- Where no data for one tab is available for that device, the tab will be hidden. For example the “Switch Stack” tab will not be shown for ISR routers;
- Fixed bug were user interface could be left in an inconsistent state following a router failing to respond;
- Fixed bug where interfaces with speeds greater than 4GB/s were misreported;
- Improved error handling experience of the interface usage chart following SNMP timeouts due to slow responding, or no longer available devices;
