setting counter thresholds with snmp monitoring

Any one have a good handling on where to set dos counter thresholds for alerting via SNMP?

 

Also trying to figure out what are the best ~50 sensors to monitor for the firewall via SNMP.

 

pan tcp drop packet, pan flow dos pf strict ip, and pan flow dos pf icmperr look potentially interesting in my particular environment.

Hi @fhewiufhwefhwe ,

 

Those are interesting counters in any environment

That said, not knowing your environment it would be guesswork trying to set counter tresholds.

 

As for DOS protection you might want to check the best practices:
