Monitoring HA state with graphite

L1 Bithead

Hi there,


i am currently working on a grafana dashboard to monitor a pa-3xxx cluster. getting numerical values by snmp with collectd is no problem. and it ist great for displaying the data. collectd can't handle strings, but the ha state ist totally string-based. does anybody know a way to get the snmp output parsed an sent into graphite? is there e.g. a perl script or anything else?


dashboard on grafana looks like this:

I'am not sure i could have thes better response on this topic but it may be help or give the beginning of an answer


for ha state i use nagios plugin check : check_nwc_health

check_nwc_health --hostname @IP --username "XXX" --authpassword "XXX" --privpassword "XXX" --authprotocol sha --privprotocol aes --mode ha-role --timeout 30

this check response OK with active device

if you check if ha peer passive i have add a negate (--negate) on this check


have a nice day
