NIIC Monitor counting vlan tagged packet

 

Hi,

I have the following set up on my cluster:

The main interface

eth0

And 2 vlan tagged interfaces

eth0.100

eth0.200

Each interface has been plumbed with an IP and I have a NIC resource set up to monitor them

Seeing as the server is a HP blade using virtual connect, I cannot use Mii to monitor the NICs so I need to use packet counting.

So the problem is if eth0 fails but eth0.100 and eth0.200 are still OK, the NIC resrouce for eth0 will not go into a faulted state as it is counting all packets that are received including the vlan tagged packets. Is there anything I can do to get around this other than writing my own agent?

All suggestions welcome,

Thanks,

Rossa.
