SNMP monitoring on PA3250 PSU

L0 Member

Hi,

 

Is there any way to monitor PA3250 power supply status via SNMP? 

We need to know in case there is power failure or outage in our environment.

 

In the gui, we never see any alarms regarding on the power loss event. 

However it is only appear in system log.

 

Thanks

Hi @iFAST-SG,

You have two possible ways:

- FW to send SNMP traps to NMS: You need to configure SNMP Trap profile (Device -> Server Profile -> SNMP Trap) and use this profile under the Log Settings (Device -> Log Settings -> System Logs -> create new using filter " ( subtype eq hw)"). To simplify it, you tell the FW to "forward system log" via SNMP trap. Note that the filter will match any harware related system logs to be sent as trap - not only PSU.

 

- SNMP poll from NMS: You can configure your NMS system to poll the status of the PSU you can use online/offline MIB browsers to find the correct OID:

Hello, 

For state of power source, ENTITY-STATE-MIB can be used.

 

ex. “snmpwalk -On -v2c -c public <ip> .1.3.6.1.2.1.131.1.1.1.ID*”

 

This oid shows state of power supply module and its alarm state
“.1.3.6.1.2.1.131.1.1.1.3(EntityOperState).ID*” shows power state. 3(Active) is ,2(Idle = power is not coming)


“.1.3.6.1.2.1.131.1.1.1.4.ID*” shows alarm state as “major” when one of power supply does not get power.


Be mindful that PS Object ID(=ID* above) are different in models PA3260 uses 4 and 5 , PA5220 have 9 and 10 for PS1 and PS2 /PA7050 uses 39-42/PA7080 uses 34-41 , etc..

 

Best Regards,

Romain
