Monitoring Juniper SRX Firewall CPU, Memory and Flow Session Information from PRTG

3

While using PRTG to monitor our firewalls, we found by default it could not poll Juniper SRX’s CPU and flow information with auto discovery method. From command line, we are able to use following SNMP Mib to get CPU, Memory and Flow Session information, but not directly from PRTG.

PRTG is powerful network monitoring tools for enterprise with following features I likes :

  • Easy to deployment, as it said it can be installed in 2 minutes
  • Auto discovery methods to find monitoring elements.
  • Support distribution implementation. You could install agents it in multiple location.
  • Support Multiple protocols, such as SNMP, WMI, Netflow, jflow and sFlow etc.
  • Web Interface is quite intuitionistic
  • Email function
  • etc
This post will show how to manually add some sensors which not be able to use through auto discovery method.

1. SRX 240 SPU Mib Information

2. Add sensors into PRTG

Since we already have MIB information in the SRX, here is the manual way to add those information into PRTG.

3. SRX1400 Mib Information

For SRX1400, SPU is in the different slot, you will just need to change slot number from 0 to 1.

4. CPU for Routing Engine 

SRX branch also have a SPU (Service Processing Unit). Considering SRX branch doesn’t have a dedicated SPU chip, but due to it’s muticore infrasture, it will use one logical core act as RE, and other logical core act as SPU, this SPU always sit in FPC0.

The following MIB is for Routing Engine CPU Poll.

  1. cpu monitor

    CPU Monitor is a lightweight Java app that uses Secure Shell (ssh) to scrape

    information from a server and chart its configuration and current load. It

    communicates directly with the server and as a result doesn’t require an agent to

    be running on the target. It currently supports Linux, Solaris and Mac OS servers

    with more OS’s coming shortly.
    CPU monitor is designed to be easy to configure and install and is sufficiently

    lightweight not to place an unacceptable burden on the server. It uses a simple

    XML file to specify the servers to monitor and is ideal for monitoring clustered

    configurations.

    It also allows the recording of the load to a file for further analysis

    The following features will be added shortly

    Support for AIX and HP-UX
    A Character mode
    A Table Mode
    Network Monitoring
    Further statistics collection
    Source code for information scraping. Allowing improvements on current

    statistic collection or support for new OS's
