Finally found appliance model number description

Randomly came across this one while trying to fix a bug where monitord was consuming 100% CPU. (still searching)

You’ll love this.

We have 200+ firewalls and all I want to know is what the friggin model number is and how many we have. How hard can that be??? Well, when you have 200 firewalls the ‘ol spreadsheet tends to get out of date.  And MDM and SmartMonitor and Smart Provision are of little use. and the ‘ol dmidecode | fgrep -i product is a bunch of crap.

Well check this out.

/etc/appliance_config.xml

applianceid

The search is over! Now if they only included this in an MDS level SmartMonitor so we could manage the fleet better.

ADDENDUM: From Heather Lewis, this is even better!

dbget :appliance_configuration:value:/model/name. This is even better!

These are stories from my travels. Generally I like to write stories about local people that I meet and also brag about living the retirement dream with my #1 wife Gaby. She is also my only wife.
