I am trying to develop a NAGIOS check to get an alert , when a vpn tunnel between PA's at different locations
is down. So far I have been looking at the ifup-status of the corresponding tunnel interface at the local firewall. It turns
out that this is still up , even if the vpn tunnel is down. From the local firewall, this can be argumentable and I can except.
Are there any other SNMP variables in the Palo Alto SNMP MIBS to check and use in order to verify the status of a vpn tunnel
between 2 PA's ?
Not completely sure if it the absense of SNMP OIDs is still valid for current versions.
Using a MIB-browser I found the following inside the PAN-TRAPS MIB :
panVPNTunnelStatusUpTrap : .184.108.40.206.4.1.254220.127.116.11.2.0.1746
panVPNTunnelStatusDownTrap : .18.104.22.168.4.1.25422.214.171.124.2.0.1747
There's also a workaround using syslog messages :
Hope this helps !
