ENA manages devices using one of the following management levels. The management interface of all devices under ENA management must be available to ICMP ping. ENA uses ping information to calculate reachability and latency information for the device. When the management interface has ping disabled, ENA reports latency and reachability as Unknown.
Device management level is set when adding the device.
Device management levels:
|Full||ENA fully manages the device and all its interfaces.|
|Full (Mgmt Port Only)||ENA v17.0 P08 upwards - ENA fully manages the device but only manages the management interface.|
|Full (No Ports)||ENA fully manages the device but does not maintain any port level information.|
ENA collects only basic system information and the full IP address table via SNMP. This management level is used in the following cases:
|Ping Only||ENA does not collect SNMP data for these devices. It only reports whether these devices respond to ICMP ping.|
|None||ENA does not manage the device. None is only available with the Custom Device device type, which is used to represent devices in ENA that are not managed by ENA.|
