This MIB module defines managed objects that facilitate the management of Quantum Flow Processors (QFP), which are listed in the ENTITY-MIB (RFC 4133) entPhysicalTable as an entPhysicalClass of ‘cpu’.
The Quantum Flow Processors (QFP) technology is an architecture family developed by Cisco, which has fully integrated and programmable networking chip set that controls different functions of a system such as packet forwarding.
This module contains objects to monitor various QFP statistics such as system, utilization, memory, etc.
The utilization statistics can be used for future capacity planning. The calculation of this statistics may vary by devices which host QFPs, hence the user must refer to the specific device document of interest for the exact method of calculation. The utilization statistics have the following terminology.
- o Input - Communication channel where packets arrive on the
o Output - Communication channel where packets leave the QFP.
- o Priority - A classification applied to packets indicating
- they should be treated with greater urgency.
- o Non-Priority - A classification applied to packets indicating
- they should be treated with lesser urgency.
- o Processing Load - The percentage of time over some interval
- that the QFP has spent forwarding packets, relative to the total time spent both forwarding packets and being idle.
