TNPM. Cisco Device Tech pack to discover virtual interfaces for MPLS devices when physical and virual interface have same ifName
Cisco Device Tech pack cannot discover virtual interfaces for MPLS Cisco devices. Because of that it is not possible to monitor any KPI for these interfaces. This means it is not possible to monitor even MIB II KPIs for these virtual interfaces, although you have installed MIB II tech pack. It is important to emphasize this RFE is not request for Cisco Device to monitor MPLS KPIs. It is request to monitor Cisco Device KPIs using Cisco Device tech pack, for Cisco MPLS devices.
Main problem here is AP~Cisco~Cisco_If_Stack_Dynamic_Discovery_Invariant uses ifName as invariant. As in case of MPLS devices physical and virtual inerface have same ifName, this interface cannot be discovered.
Main future of Cico Device is to discover interfaces, and in this case that main functionality is not available.
