How to monitor McAfee Network Security sensor (NSS) appliance using SNMP from solarwinds orion
When i configure SNMPv3 on the NSS appliance and solarwinds using the following:
SNMP Version: SNMPv3
SNMPv3 Authentication: MD5
SNMPv3 Privacy / Encryption: DES56
But doesn't seem to pull back any interfaces when listing resource on the node.
Does anyone have any experience with this setup?
the McAfee/Intel IPS devices have a custom MIB -- they have relocated the sensor interfaces statistics to a private/enterprise area of the MIB instead of overlaying the interfaces MIB.
Open a support case with McAfee/Intel asking them to fix this (it's netSNMP based and truly is only a small matter of programming)
In the meantime you'll have to make use of Universal device pollers on the Node to pull back stats;
[I use the router either side of it for traffic estimates and universal device pollers for the physical hardware monitoring; the security solutions team is responsible for the other stats on the device, so I can't help on that]
