A10 ZenPack

This ZenPack supports A10 load balancers.

It creates new component types for:

       Virtual Server
       Service Group

Each of these components are direct subcomponents of the A10Device type.

There are ManyToMany relationships between each of the subcomponents though these are not currently modeled.

The /Network/A10 device class is supplied with appropriate zProperties, modeler plugins and templates applied.

Two modeler plugins are supplied:

       A10DeviceMap sets total memory, serial number and Hardware / software manufacturer / model
       A10Map models the virtual servers, service groups and servers

A device template, A10MemCpu delivers memory and cpu data and graphs.

Component templates for A10VirtualServer, A10ServiceGroup and A10Server provides data and graphs for these components with:

       Packets In
       Bytes In
       Packets Out
       Bytes Out
       Current connections

The component display for a Virtual Server includes related Service Groups and a dropdown that shows all Servers. The component display for a Service Group includes related Servers and a dropdown for all servers.

The following MIBs are included:

An A10 Event Class is included with a class transform to provide a more meaningful event summary, based on data on an incoming A10 trap / notification. Three event mappings are provided to provide correlation between VirtualServerPort Up/Down events and for ServiceGroupMember Up/Down events. (Note that the devices tested do not appear to send axServiceGroupMemberDown discrete events (trap 33). You only see trap 32 events with a message that may have both up and down in the text. I believe this is an A10 bug).
