Help on structure on script to find host

L1 Bithead

How would you achive this?

So we have alot of vlans on alot of firewalls, vsys and vr. Our ipam is decent documented but it would be nice to make a api call to the firewalls to get the info insted. I would like to find the

Firewall and Zone where a specific ip is routed.


Is the way to loop through all the firewalls build a list of all the vrs on all the firewalls, and then do a route lookup (test fib lookup...) on each vr on the ip and find where is "connected"? And then parse the output and print it?

Or do you have a other alternative?

If you didn't want to write the whole thing, alternative approaches might include existing tooling. I think Batfish could model your network to potentially make path discovery or host discovery easier?
