Monitor a PA-5060 (Memory, CPU) with Orion via SNMP

L3 Networker

Has anyone ever set this up?  My network engineers would like to monitor our devices with Orion which requires it be done via SNMP traps.  Can someone walk me through the process?

Monitor memory and cpu by traps sounds odd.

Traps for those situations are used as alerts like "if more than 90% cpu during 1 minute, send trap to warn that something is odd".

But according to page 74 in admin guide you can setup to use snmp traps (same way as syslog) to get events from system, traffic or traffic logs.

Otherwise the alerting stuff can be setup in various places such as in:

Device > Setup > Operations

Device > Log Settings > Config

Device > Log Settings > System

Device > Log Settings > HIP Match

Device > Log Settings > Alarms

Device > Server Profiles -> SNMP Trap

and probably some other place I have missed.

Regarding using snmp to monitor memory and cpu usage over time check this thread or download the MIB files from
