We have discussions about that, but no solid plan yet. (171941)
As a matter of fact, in order to fuel those discussions, we are looking for examples of customer Palo Alto configs (we can deal with sanitized configs without real IP's for ex).
If this is something you can help us with, please contact me (I will also ping you)
Being integrated with the Solarwinds and PA SMEs and am wondering if there has been any progress for Palo Alto support.
What is the current status of integration? We've recently purchased 2 5060s and 5 PA-200s. I have a long list of "recommended OIDs from the vendor, but how exactly do I integrate this information into Orion?
Sorry it's taken so long to get back to you.
These are the items I have:
CPU utilization on management plane
Utilization of CPUs on dataplane that are used for system functions
Utilization of CPUs on dataplane that are used for packet processing
Management plane memory and dataplane packet buffer
Names of each interface on the device
Interface up/down status
Interface in counters
Interface in errors
Interface out counters
GlobalProtect gateway utilization
% session utilization
Active ICMP Sessions
Active UDP Sessions
Active TCP Sessions
Total Active Sessions
VSYS active sessions
VSYS session % utilization
I'e got a bunch of others (HA and whatnot), the document I have is confidential/proprietary to Palo. I'm sure if you ask your Palo rep they can give it to you. If your rep doesn't have it give me his contact info and I can give it to him and let him forward it to you.
I still don't understand how to add these items in Solarwinds though so all these OIDs can be monitored. Can someone tell me how to do that or is there documentation somewhere?
I have posted a UnDP poller for HA status. https://thwack.solarwinds.com/docs/DOC-175583
Many of the OIDs you list are standard, so thing like interface status and interface utilization will add just by adding the node in NPM. Have you added any of these devices yet? If so, take a look at what is provided out-of--the-box and note what else you want/need to see. From that list I can create a more complete collection of PA custom pollers.
This thread would be better positioned in NPM not in FSM, since it relates to monitoring of the device. FSM would be involved in managing the PA's configuration from a security audit and config cleanup perspective, but no link with SNMP OIDs.
We'll move it if OK with you, stingcb
By all means move the thread to the location you think it is most appropriate.
