Monitoring PA4020 with Cacti

Not applicable


Has anyone managed to set up Cacti to manage the system resources, Mem, CPU, Sessions, Connections and so on?

I have tried the Netcreen tips as per

But this didnt help...

Any other tips?

Or can anyone suggest a monitoring tool thats better than Cacti?

With snmp you can monitor CPU load, Session statistics and interface statistics. 

Here is a link for the Palo Alto Networks MIB file

The CPU load and Interface statistics is straight forward to monitor with Cacti.  In the Cacti Console page, In Devices, under Associated Data Queries, you'll need to add "SNMP - Get Processor Information" and "SNMP - Interface Statistics".

This will at least get you started.  I have not configured monitoring for Session statistics and we do not currently have Templates for Cacti.

I know this is an older thread, but it may help others, so I recently posted Cacti templates here:

Hope these help,
