Question on Fortinet firewall monitoring in NNMi 10.10

I Would like to know if anyone is monitoring Fortinet firewalls from NNMI. If yes, then are you guys monitoring the service of it? Like if its a VPN firewall then can we setup an alert for it so that network team will be alerted when the service goes down.

Are there any specific MIBs for it to be loaded?

Hello Pratik

Thanks for posting,

I was wondering if you can share the SysOID for this device in order to help you with this doubt,

Regards,

Re: Question on Fortinet firewall monitoring in NNMi 10.10

Hello Pratik,

 

depending on the SysOID NNMi supports some Fortinet devices. One of our customers monitores the following devices (NNMi 10.10 Patch 3, Device Driver Pack Jan 2017):

 

.1.3.6.1.4.1.12356.101.1.641
.1.3.6.1.4.1.12356.101.1.800
.1.3.6.1.4.1.12356.101.1.803
.1.3.6.1.4.1.12356.101.1.1002
.1.3.6.1.4.1.12356.101.1.1004
.1.3.6.1.4.1.12356.101.1.2005
.1.3.6.1.4.1.12356.101.1.3006
.1.3.6.1.4.1.12356.103.1.1001
.1.3.6.1.4.1.12356.103.3.10004
.1.3.6.1.4.1.12356.118

 

For some of them NNMi is out-of-the-box able to monitor:

 

Fortinet Firewall component metrics (iSPI Performance for Metrics needed)
Fortinet HA CRG (CRG: Card Redundancy Group)
Fortinet Vdom HA CRG

Physical Sensors in the chassis are not monitored (perhaps not covered by any Vendor MIB?)

 

You can always extend the monitoring with the Custom Poller in NNMi (not done in this environment).

 

HTH and kind regards

 

Allessandro

Hello Pratik,

 

no, no further monitoring is done in NNMi for the devices (no Custom Poller usage currently).

 

HTH and kind regards

Re: Question on Fortinet firewall monitoring in NNMi 10.10

Ok... thanks for the inputs though... I found some MIB on net but have to get it validated from network folks if it serves their purpose....
