    NetScreen Firewalls

      Just finished upgrading to NPM V9 one hope was that we would be able to poll Netscreen Firewalls for more than just interface statitics.  Is there any customization that can be done to poll for instance CPU and Memory Utilization.

           If the device has a MIB with that information, you should be able to poll it with the Universal Device Poller.

             When I try to load Universal Device Poller I get an error Cannot contact server. Exiting Application

                    Is the Orion Module Engine service running?

                            Look in the NPM.BusinessLayer.log file in your install directory and post any errors you find.

                                    deswhite,

                                    Could you open a ticket with support and attach the zip file you get by running Solarwinds Diagnostics (from the "Orion/Advanced Features" section of the start menu)? That will help us figure out how your install got broken.

                                    Thanks,
