Model Attributes

Model attributes can be used to set values on models, set values directly on devices, turn sp features on or off, configure sp features, set default values in the sp modeling catalog, and so on. You can modify an attribute which is associated with a device’s MIB object, thus changing the device’s value for that object without having to use the device’s local management. For example, you can modify a device’s contact details. You can modify the Maintenance or Hibernation mode attribute to control those features.

features on or off, configure

features, set default values in the
DX NetOps Spectrum
modeling catalog, and so on. You can modify an attribute which is associated with a device’s MIB object, thus changing the device’s value for that object without having to use the device’s local management. For example, you can modify a device’s contact details. You can modify the Maintenance or Hibernation mode attribute to control those features.
Use caution when changing default settings for models; this can affect the overall performance of
DX NetOps Spectrum
. Additionally, attribute value changes you make to the selected models will affect the same values for similar models created in the future, and for any existing model if that model’s type is using the default value.
You can review and modify model attributes as follows in OneClick:
  • Information tab:
    Use the Information tab in the Component Detail panel to view and modify certain common attributes for a single model. See Attributes in the Information Tab for more information about viewing and setting attribute values for a single model from the Information tab.
  • Attributes tab:
    Use the Attributes tab in the Component Detail panel to access every possible attribute for a selected model. You can also create custom views of attributes and modify each one as needed, depending on your access rights. See Attributes Tab for more information about viewing and setting attribute values for a single model using the Attributes tab.
  • Attribute Editor:
    Use the Attribute Editor to modify non-list attributes for a model or subset of models as well as to modify default attribute values in the
    DX NetOps Spectrum
    modeling catalog. If you change any attribute values and apply them to the
    DX NetOps Spectrum
    modeling catalog, each device model that is subsequently created based on that model type will use the new attribute value. See OneClick Attribute Editor for information about using the Attribute Editor. You must have administrative read/write privileges for those models you want to configure with the Attribute Editor.
