Port Description Parsing

Observium will recognise the usage of ports as customer ports, transit, etc for display purposes using a standardised interface description format.

Cust: Example Customer [10Mbit] (T1 Telco Y CCID129031) {EXAMP0001}

The identifier before the colon defines the type of service, recognised types are :

Identifier Description
Cust Customer
Transit Transit link
Peering Peering link
Core Infrastructure link (non-customer)
Server Server link (non-customer)

Additional information can be added using different bracket types:

  • () contains a note
  • {} contains your circuit id
  • [] contains the service type or speed

Cust: Example Customer [10Mbit] (T1 Telco Y CCID129031) {EXAMP0001}

Transit: Example Provider (AS65000)

Core: core.router01 FastEthernet0/0 (Telco X CCID023141)

Peering: Peering Exchange
