Comment 3 Greg Blomquist 2016-11-22 18:11:44 UTC
Oved, can you guys validate whether this is because it's not getting RHEV data, or whether this is because the reporting is not working correctly.

If it's reporting, you can reassign to GreggT.  Thanks!

Comment 4 Oved Ourfali 2016-11-22 18:44:06 UTC
Ilanit, can you check that use case in your 5.6 system? 
Saif, what's the RHV version they work with?

Comment 5 Saif Ali 2016-11-22 18:59:47 UTC
Oved, I'm not sure about the customer RHV version but I tested on my system, and its running Red Hat Virtualization Manager Version: , and CFME

OS Version:
RHEL - 4.0 - 4.2.el7
OS Description:
Red Hat Virtualization Host 4.0 (el7.2)
Kernel Version:
3.10.0 - 327.36.1.el7.x86_64

Comment 6 Saif Ali 2016-11-22 19:03:24 UTC
Let me ask them about RHV version they using also.

Comment 7 myoder 2016-11-23 17:45:26 UTC
RHV versions are:

Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor release 6.6
Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor release 7.2

And the RHEV-M is 3.5.

Comment 9 Ilanit Stein 2016-11-28 13:55:49 UTC
For CFME- and RHV-4.0.5/RHV-3.6.8,
It seems the table on Hardware information looks different than the attached report, for CFME-

Here, the missing information is only for 'Hardware Number of Nics' column.
screenshot 'CFME-' attached.   

I'll test it on CFME- as well, and update later on.

Comment 11 Ilanit Stein 2016-11-29 09:52:30 UTC
For CFME- & CFME-,
the displayed table is the same as for CFME- and RHV-4.0.5/RHV-3.6.8
(See "CFME-" attachment).
But, here these columns are not populated:
'Hardware Manufacturer', 'Hardware Model', 'Hardware Number Of Nics'.

To sum up: 
For CFME, with added RHV provider, and following this flow: 
Cloud Intel >> Reports >> All Reports >> Configration Management >> Hosts >> Hardware Information,

lead to the attached "CFME-" screenshot.
This table is different from the "report" attachment.

I guess the flow to generate the "report" is different than the one mentioned in bug description.

Can you please clarify: how to generate this "report"/where this "report" is located?

Comment 12 Saif Ali 2016-11-30 22:39:49 UTC
RHEV 4.0 (
Cloud Intel >> Reports >> All Reports >> Configuration Management >> Hosts >> Hardware Information report.

Comment 13 Ilanit Stein 2016-12-01 08:35:52 UTC
RHV4 is supported also in CFME 5.6.1 and above: bug 1372393.

Using the default available reports, using flow:
Cloud Intel >> Reports >> All Reports >> Configuration Management >> Hosts >> Hardware Information report,
display the attached "CFME-"

I couldn't find a report, as the attached "report"
however, I created a new report, with fields, that were available under "Host/Nodes":

IP Address,	
Hardware Guest OS, 
Hardware Model, 
Number of CPU Cores, 
Number of CPUs, 
Hardware Cpu Cores Per Socket, 
Hardware Manufacturer]
(couldn't find "Hardware serial number", mentioned in comment 8).
The resulted report can be seen in attachment "New_report".

For CFME-, and providers: VSphere 5.5, RHV-4.0.5, RHV-3.5.
In this "New_report" created, for VSphere all columns were populated. 
For RHV-4.0.5 & RHV-3.5 all fields were populated, except for "Hardware Guest OS"

1. Was the "report" attached was created by using New report flow?
2. If yes, from where "Hardware serial number", mentioned in comment 8, was taked (it is not seen in the attached "report"

Comment 18 Shirly Radco 2016-12-14 11:35:57 UTC
The following fields were added only in RHV 3.6 :
threads_per_core, hardware_manufacturer, hardware_product_name, hardware_version, hardware_serial_number
So they can not be displayed for a RHV 3.5.

Also, the host configurations table in dwh does not include the "Number of nics" field and it will require calculation on the report level when running the report.

Host_os is available, not sure why it is not populated for RHV.

    Add parsing number of nics from RHV inventory
    During refresh parse the number of nics a host has and put it in hardware.
    This fixes:

 .../manageiq/providers/redhat/infra_manager/refresh/parse/parser.rb     | 2 ++
 .../providers/redhat/infra_manager/refresh/refresher_3_1_spec.rb        | 2 +-

Comment 22 Tasos Papaioannou 2017-05-04 14:46:34 UTC
Verified on with RHEV 3.6 and RHV 4.1. Hosts have number_of_nics populated in "hardwares" db table, and the "Hardware information for Hosts" report shows the values as expected.
