If your Unified Dashboard is not populating with data, make sure all required data sources for the Unified Dashboard are enabled. The required probe must be deployed and must be configured so that required QoS metrics and subkeys or targets are activated. For more information, see the help topic on required data sources for the Unified Dashboard.

Cisco Device Buffer Misses
The processor memory of the Cisco device is divided into pools. Each pool contains a number of memory blocks of equal size. These memory blocks are called buffers.
There are six buffer pools:
  • Small - 104-byte buffers
  • Medium - 600-byte buffers
  • Big - 1524-byte buffers
  • Large - 4520-byte buffers
  • Very Large - 5024-byte buffers
  • Huge - 18024-byte buffers
Column
Description
Host
IP address of the Cisco device.
Small
Number of buffer misses for the small buffer pool during the last 5 minutes.
Medium
Number of buffer misses for the medium buffer pool during the last 5 minutes.
Big
Number of buffer misses for the big buffer pool during the last 5 minutes.
Large
Number of buffer misses for the large buffer pool during the last 5 minutes.
Very Large
Number of buffer misses for the very large buffer pool during the last 5 minutes.
Huge
Number of buffer misses for the huge buffer pool during the last 5 minutes.
Cisco Device Environment Status
Column
Description
Host
IP address of the Cisco device.
Fan State
Status of the device fan during the last 5 minutes. Status is reported as normal, warning, critical, shutdown, not present, or not functioning.
