As of R77.20 on GAIA, Orion recognizes Check Point devices as device type: "Check Point Software Technologies Ltd". They are no longer the generic net-snmp device type.
This may be the case on R77 or R77.10 versions or on R77.xx SPLAT but I do not have them in my environment so I cannot speak to them personally.
I have 2 Check Point firewalls monitored in NPM now
I can get NPM data (e.g. Avg Bps in/out, Total bytes transmitted\received, MAC Address, Uptime) but not NTA data (Top conversations, protocols, applications, Type of service etc)
I suspect that this is due to a netflow config issue
I'm starting to become a stuck record on this. In order to get an unknown device recognized by Solarwinds NPM you must do exactly these things:
a) post your sysObjectID, MachineType, and vendor to 'Tell us your unknown devices'
b) phone up solarwinds support and tell them you need support for your device in the next release
c) Hope that someone reads your post, or gets yours support case and compiles it into the next release of the code
you might also vote up my idea for this to be configurable by the Solarwinds Admin
note: it is pointless to download a MIB: that will not set MachineType, Vendor, or the icons. All downloading the MIB does is make it available for the UnDP.
Opening a support case is the way I do not want to do with just small trouble, however it seem to be the fastest way in this case.
I already posted in "Tell Us unknown devices" and hoped that the 10.6 version will update my device, but not.
Anyway Solarwinds are working to meet our requirement.
I has posted my sysOID in "Tell you unknown device" last 6 days, and how to make sure my OID already have in solarwind build-in systemOID in next upgrade MIB database?
This has nothing to do with MIB database. Orion’s sysObjectID database is used to recognize the SysObjectID and the device information. SysObjectID database is a part of NPM so added sysObjectIDs are available with next NPM version.
There is an Orion build-in SysObjectID in MIB database. It has been updated in each Solarwind MIB.cfg version. Last 30 days, I has posted my unknown device, but until now no update.
There are 2 separate mechanisms:
- SysObjId are updated with all posting made on thwack here and are delivered as part of each new version of NPM. There is no way to get an update of this before the next release of NPM
- MIBs are updates based on cases opened and you can get updated versions of the MIB via the customer portal
There is a blog post explaining how to proceed here
My idea is out there to be voted on.
This should be configurable by the systems administrator -- we should be able to update a table of sysObjectIds and specify the vendor, Machinetype, and vendorIcon at least.
