SNMP Paloalto

Hello !

 

I want to do snmp polling to a palo alto firewall, but not using any management "software" (like zabbix). I'm trying to do it via bash command snmpget, in which i pass the object OID 1.3.6.1.2.1.25.3.3.1.2.1 (CPU util on the management plane). Something like this:

 

# snmpget -v 2c -c public 192.168.100.1 1.3.6.1.2.1.25.3.3.1.2.1

 

In which 192.168.100.1 is the firewall interface addr. The problem is that there is no response, it always gives me timeout. Could someone here give me a light if there is a easier way to do for a paloalto firewall? 

 

Thanks =]

Did you configure SNMP in these two areas:  

  Device / Setup / Operations / SNMP Setup

  Device / Setup / Interfaces / Management / SNMP

Hello,

To add to @jvalentine post, I would highly recommend using snmp v3 instead of v2 for security reasons.

 

Cheers!
