SNMP traps for power supply monitoring on PA-5260 MIB

L3 Networker

Hi Team,


We have an PA-5260 deployed in our environment. 


Need to monitor the firewall using SNMP manager for power failure or when the power supply removed.


Firewall is running on PAN-OS 10.0 and we had downloaded the MIB file from the below link and loaded the MIB file for PANTraps


But we are unable to find the power related OID on the PAN-TRAPS MIB file as given below:


Will we be able to monitor the Power supply status of the firewall using SNMP or this feature is not available yet .


Thanks in advance

Hi @tamilvanan , the ENTITY-STATE-MIB provides data for line cards, fan trays, and power supplies. However, it is currently only used for the PA-7000 and PA-5450 firewalls. 


Please reach out to your local SE for assistance in submitting a feature request if this is something you require. There may be more people requiring the same thing.

Hi @JayGolf . Thanks for the response.


Is the below provided MIB in PANTRAPS as per documentation only applicable to PA 7000 and PA-5450


Example OID'sattribute
. Supply inserted 
. Supply removed 
. Supply failure


Also the ENTITY-STATE-MIB  is used for monitoring the power supply status.


Thanks in advance

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


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


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

“.*” 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,
