Switch/Firewall/Router Monitoring Probes
Switch/Firewall/Router probes developed by the InterMapper User Community include:
PaloAlto PA-7050 Security Appliance
David Stempien at the University of Rochester created this probe to monitor a PaloAlto PA-7050 Enterprise Security appliance. Operating state is monitored and checked for alarm state. Utilization information is provided for active sessions.
Cisco Nexus BGP
Benjamin Hubert at Exane created this probe to monitor the CPU, Memory utilization, and current BGP peer connections.
Cisco Nexus 3548P
Benjamin Hubert at Exane created this probe to monitor the CPU and Memory utilization for a Cisco Nexus 3548P data center switch.
Cisco Nexus 56xx
Benjamin Hubert at Exane created this probe to monitor the CPU and Memory utilization for a Cisco Nexus 5672 L2/L3 10GB data center switch.
Cisco Switch Stack Probe
Benjamin Hubert at Exane created this probe to measure CPU, Memory, and health for stacked Cisco switches.
Juniper MAG 2600
Javier Benito from Batz S. Coop. in Bizikaia, Igorre, Spain sends a probe that monitors a Juniper MAG Series. The probe monitors: Hardware Status, SSL connections, Meeting Users, and Login Atttempts.
Spectracom EC20S Epsilon Clock
Peter Wahlberg from Media Netwerk AS in Oslo, Norway sends a probe for monitoring a number of parameters for a GPS synchronization unit. It checks that the unit has Signal Lock, enough visible satellites, hardware status (H/W modules, Power Supplies, etc.) and provides necessary information (GPS Longitude, Latitude, Altitude, Current time).
"We're operating an DVB-T SFN network and using these devices for syncing our devices. If the sync disappears for a short time, our devices will mute their output and all customers in that region will lose their tv channels. This probe gives us a 'heads up' when this happens and gives us time to re-establish proper synchronization. It also shows why the sync was lost."
Mailfoundry Email Filtering Appliances
J Toth from NetEnterprise in Honolulu, Hawaii sends in a probe to monitor a Mailfoundry Email appliance. The Mailfoundry HTTP probe examines the HTTP status built into the Mailfoundry email security device and evaluates parameters including last antivirus and antispam definition update times and dates, database and mail queue utilization, system utilization and queue size based on user inputted thresholds. The probe was developed to monitor the system health and operation of the Mailfoundry appliance. Without the probe, the only way to determine if definitions were being updated and emails processed on a timely basis was to login to the system and manually check. The probe enables unattended real time monitoring of critical system parameters.
James Pugh from eBay Enterprise also submitted a probe for the Radware DefensePro Intrusion Detection System (IDS) that monitors interface statistics, CPU and accelerator utilization, as well as cpu temp and fan and power supply status among other variables. It will also alert on received trap variables indicating high threat IDS events.
"We needed a way to monitor critical statistics of the Radware DefensePro as well as alert on certain IDS events. The probe provides the ability to alert on events that occur in real time as well as the typical statistics that one wants to know about a piece of hardware."
Silicom Intelligent Bypass Switch
James Pugh from eBay Enterprise sends a probe that monitors the port and bypass status of a Silicom Intelligent Bypass switch.
"These bypass switches don't use any standard MIBs. We needed a way to monitor the status of the interfaces, whether up or down, as well as the status of the bypass mode should it be triggered to take the monitoring equipment that is otherwise inline out of the link."
Juniper ERX1440 CPU & Memory
Matthew Wright of MDNX in Bracknell, Berkshire, UK sends a probe to monitor a Juniper ERX1440 series router for CPU/mem resource and the number of subscribers on the box.
He writes, "We use Juniper ERX1440 devices on the network. We needed a way for InterMapper to alert on any problems and if there is a big drop in subscribers."
Juniper MX80 CPU & Memory
Matthew Wright from MDNX in Bracknell, Berkshire, UK submits a probe to monitor a Juniper MX80 series router for CPU/mem resource and also alarm conditions.
"We have MX80 router in our core network. We needed a way for Intermapper to alert on any problems."
Juniper M & MX CPU/Memory
Matthew Wright of MDNX in Bracknell, Berkshire, UK sends a probe that monitors a Juniper M/MX series router for CPU/mem resource and also alarm conditions.
"Our core network uses Juniper routers and we needed a way for Intermapper to alert on any problems."
Brocade ADX CPU
Debbie Fligor from the University of Illinois in Urbana IL sends a probe that monitors MP and LP CPU values for a Brocade ADX load balancer.
She writes, "We needed to monitor (and graph) the CPU for the main processor, and especially the BPs which are the processors that do the L4-7 specialty stuff in the ADX to ensure that we had licensed enough BPs. The solution was to make a probe that gathers those values via SNMP and display them in a useful format."
Riverbed Steelhead WAN Optimization Appliance
Stephen McDonald from Xerox sends a probe that monitors a Riverbed Steelhead WAN optimizer appliance. The probe displays Riverbed specific metrics including reduction % in/out, peered devices, processes, and reduction per port.
Stephen writes, "The built-in reporting interface for Riverbed is nice, but it's a pain to have to log into each one individually to get per device status. Riverbed CMC product can do this - but at extra cost of course."
OSPF Neigbor State Custom SNMP Probe
This probe monitors the particular OSPF neighbor state of an interface on a Cisco or Juniper router. It generates alarms when the OSPF state is not full.
BGP Peering Session Probe
Monitors the status of a particular BGP peering session on a Juniper or Cisco router, and generates alarms when the BGP session goes down.
Nortel Passport and Accelar Switches
Monitors the CPU, Switch Fabric, and Buffer utilization of a Passport 8600 router.
Provides Informational, Tables, Resource Usage and Hardware Health information for Juniper EX-Series switches.
3Com 5500 switch
Polls each interface of a 3Com 5500 switch, displays the current traffic in and out of each interface in kilobytes/second, and generates an alert if traffic on the monitored interface exceeds thresholds defined in the probe. This probe currently can only monitor one interface at a time.
Polls each interface of an Astrocom device, displays the current traffic in and out of that interface in kilobytes/second, and generates an alert if traffic on the monitored interface exceeds thresholds defined in the probe. This probe currently can monitor up to three interfaces at a time.
High Traffic - PPS Probe
Monitors traffic in packets per second, instead of bytes per second. This probe will provide a notification when traffic on a certain port/interface exceeds thresholds and give alarms when that interface goes down.
