QoS Statistics with external tool

L0 Member


QoS statistics  is an excellent tool to check the realtime bandwidth divided by assigned classes.

It's possible using of external monitoring tools (Ex. Nagios, Cacti, PandoraFMS, ), to obtain the same graph to have an history of bandwidth divided by class?

There are no OID Objects for SNMP queries for this level of detail, so SNMP is out of the picture.

There was a similar post here:


You could explore scripting expect commands to extract information from cli commands like

> show qos interface ethernet1/1 counter

> show qos interface ethernet1/1 throughput 0

Unfortunately the API queries are not working for these operational commands:


curl -k "https://<FIREWALL_IP>/api/?type=op&cmd=<show><qos><interface><ethernet1/1><counter></counter></ethernet1/1></interface></qos></show>&key=<API_KEY>&client=curl"


<response status = 'error' code = '400'><result><msg>Illegal parameter [request]</msg></result></response>


curl -k "https://<FIREWALL_IP>/api/?type=op&cmd=<show><qos><interface><ethernet1/1><throughput><0></0></throughput></ethernet1/1></interface></qos></show>&key=<API_KEY>&client=curl"


<response status = 'error' code = '400'><result><msg>Illegal parameter [request]</msg></result></response>

Note: The <API_KEY> needs to be generated before-hand. You can generate it using cURL:

curl -k "https://<IP_PAN>/api/?type=keygen&user=<your_user>&password=<your_password>"
