SNMP to track NAT/PAT translation usage statistic

L1 Bithead

Hi,

 

There's public IP configured with NAT port address translation for outbound Internet access. Can we monitor the statistics/utilization of NAT/PAT to prevent port exhaustion, is yes is there a reference guide what's the OID value or which modules / subtree to refer in mibs file, or via API calls?

 

 

Thank you

The mibs are located here:  https://docs.paloaltonetworks.com/resources/snmp-mib-files

Look at the PAN-COMMON-MIB.my and there is an entry:

 

panFlowPolicyNat OBJECT-TYPE
SYNTAX Counter64
MAX-ACCESS read-only
STATUS current
DESCRIPTION
"Session setup: source NAT IP/port allocation error"
::= { panGlobalCountersDOSCounters 11 }

 

This is what you want to look at.
