Hello Palo Alto Community,
I created a few Cacti Templates which allow you to quickly and easily monitor Palo Alto Networks firewalls with SNMP. There are 5 different templates corresponding to the 5 different Firewall families, PA-200, PA-500, PA-20xx, PA-40xx, PA-50xx.
Using these with Cacti (www.cacti.net), these Host templates will monitor the following sets variables, create historical graphs of these variables (example Graphs listed below):
If you know of other OIDs which you feel the broader community would like monitored, I would be happy to add them to the templates.
Once cacti is installed on your favorite OS, you simply connect to the Cacti web interface and import these host templates. Then you can add devices for Cacti to SNMP Poll/Monitor and you have a long term graphical representation of what the firewall is doing, how much traffic it is seeing, how many sessions it is supporting, etc.
Hope these help,
Since released back in 2012 some of these templates no longer work as Palo Alto has modified their OID's over the years. Attached is the PA-500 v1.1 template.
Would attach here but no idea how to attach a file in this forum
Thanks for the above 5 Cacti templates to monitor different PAN FW KPI using Cacti . I need some help to monitor below 2 PAN FW SNMP OID in Cacti for packet buffer utilization % and session util %. Can you create or update the existing Cacti template for the below 2 SNMP OID?
