Enter in the desired IPv6 / IPv6 CIDR and RIR, at minimum. Region, Tags, Resource, Domain, VLAN, and subassignment status are optional, if desired. To enable subassignments, a resource must be selected.
If creating the aggregate for a specific use, keep in mind that certain uses may require additional information is provided in the aggregate, such as requiring 1918 space (DHCP Pools), a region to be provided (DHCP Customer Configuration Gadget), or a resource to be assigned with subassignments enabled. In such cases, it may be useful to assign a specific IPAM tag to associate with that use to assign at aggregate creation (such as "DHCP" )
When done, click "Add Aggregate", and you will be redirected back to the IPAM Tab home page. The Aggregate a link to the newly created aggregate will be available. You may also click "Clear" and create another aggregate. Aggregates will be listed under the Host Utilization and Aggregate Blocks list of the IPAM Tab.
Delete an Aggregate
Aggregates may be deleted from the Gear Icon in the top right corner of their Host Utilization box display.
A warning dialog box will appear confirming the deletion, and noting whether assigned blocks exist in the aggregate that would also be deleted.
Sparse allocation options are accessed from the IPv6 Aggregate's Action Menu (gear icon). The top right corner of the Utilization module for the IPv6 aggregate will display whether sparse allocation is enabled or disabled for the particular aggregate.
Enable or disable Sparse Allocation for the aggregate by clicking on the aggregate menu, and select to Enable / Disable Sparse Allocation for the aggregate. A "Sparse Allocate" Numbering Domain will automatically be generated for the aggregate in the Admin → IPAM Admin area of ProVision, using the currently set Sparse Allocation Scheme setting.
- Searching for the block in the Global search, and clicking on the resulting CIDR
- Clicking the "Open" link in the aggregate blocks list from the IPAM tab.
- Clicking on the CIDR header of the Aggregate Block Host Utilization module, or selecting "EditManage Aggregate" from the module's Gear Icon from the the IPAM tab.
- Clicking on the CIDR listed in the Aggregate Info box in IPAM Maps
Auto Split Aggregate
Auto Split an available aggregate into blocks of a specific size, up to a specific quantity of blocks by selecting "Size" and "Limit" under "Auto Split".
The block limit must be a power of two, or an error will appear. When done, click "Split".
Clean Up Aggregate
Clean up an Aggregate into fewer blocks of a specific size, by selecting your desired block size and clicking "ignore assignments" (if blocks have assignments that would prevent merging).
When done, click the "Clean Up" button.
A confirmation modal will display the scope of the potential change.
Click "Continue" to confirm and all blocks will be merged to the set size and reset to available. Click "Cancel" to exit.
Set Aggregate Alerts
Enable or clear aggregate alert emails for the aggregate by setting an email address and utilization percentage level.
When the aggregate is utilized to the set percent, an email alert will be sent to the provided address.
When done, click "Save Alert". To clear an existing alert, hit "Clear Alert", and the alert information will be removed and status saved.
