Warning - Sensor Proc 1 level 1 crache .. equal unknown

Veeam Logoby geraldb » Mon Oct 06, 2014 9:55 am

Hi,

I've just installed VeaamONE (7.0.0.949) and added an ESXI-Standalone Server (5.1).
After I've added the server I recveived the following warning:

Description
Sensor "Proc 1 Level-1 Cache DeviceID:1041.01" equal Unknown
Sensor "Proc 1 Level-2 Cache DeviceID:1042.01" equal Unknown
Sensor "Proc 1 Level-3 Cache DeviceID:1043.01" equal Unknown
Sensor "Proc 2 Level-1 Cache DeviceID:1041.02" equal Unknown
Sensor "Proc 2 Level-2 Cache DeviceID:1042.02" equal Unknown
Sensor "Proc 2 Level-3 Cache DeviceID:1043.02" equal Unknown
Knowledge
One of the hosts' hardware sensors has changed its status.
Cause
Monitoring hardware sensor information allows tracking physical hardware status.
Sensor's status is automatically refreshed by vCenter Server's request.


in the vSphere client -> heath status everything seems fine ..

I've resolved it once because but it instantly re-appears as a warning ..

Hi Gerald,

The issue is known and was discussed in the forum.

The problem of the warning appearance (most likely) is that VMware reports "Read Policy: unknown" state for these sensors.
Our support team worked with a number of clients having the same problem and contacted VMware for a clarification. We`ve received an answer that the problem is caused by some hardware vendors and VMware has a KB article describing the situation.

So we`ve decided to revise sensors collection mechanism for our upcoming Veeam One v8 release, which is going to be on a shelf in November.
For now I can suggest you to contact our support team for having Webex and making sure the problem is "Read Policy: unknown" status. If so, it is just a warning which should not harm your infrastructure or cause any problems.

P.S. Once you contact Veeam support team, please provide a support case number.
Thank you!

Hi Shestakov,

thanks for your answer.
I think we don't need the veeam support to have a look at it because we have on all 3 HP ML350G6 Servers the same problem... seems to be unlikely that it is a real hardware issue.
But i have another short questions.
If I add this Warning to an exlusion, all further "host hardware status" issue will be ignored ? (e.g. storage / power supply problems)
Is there a possiblity to just ingore THIS single host hardware status issue ?

thanks
gerald

Gerald,

You are correct, you can customize the warning in accordance to your needs.
For this purpose, go to Veeam Monitor > Alarm Management tab > among Host alarms pick Host hardware status and Edit it.
Go to Rules and set Rule Types/Parameters as you want.

Thank you.
