Appendix – Activating Switch Telemetry Using Telemetry Agent

To use NVIDIA ® Mellanox ® NEO ® as a controller for the telemetry agent, perform the following steps:

  1. Go to Settings → Telemetry, and configure the Data Collector. The Data Collector is the server to which the telemetry agents send their data.

  2. Go to the NEO Devices table, and select the switch on which you want to activate the telemetry agent. You can check the devices in a Telemetry-supported group, to see if the switch has Docker capability.

    Warning

    The selected switch must have Docker capabilities. You might need to update the OS version for Docker support.
