CIM Issues #6512
Support measurements of configuration status
We need a way to indicate that the device has detected an illegitimate configuration. This is ordinarily done as an event. But it seems that every event needs a corresponding measurement. A change in a measurement status creates an event. How would we measure the current configuration status legitimacy?
We need a "measurement" for this, so Annex C is affected.
There are not many fields available to "drill down" into this.
Propose adding "commodity" as a "configuration", then "measurementKind" can be used to indicate the configuration area (if there is one).
The UOM can be "status", and the value 0, 1, or some other defined value to represent the configuration status.
We could also present the configuration "checksum" as the value if we add "checksum" as a "measurementKind."
