Temperature to monitor for Palo Alto devices ?

L1 Bithead



I saw there is a operating temp for Palo Alto devices but what about incoming, outgoing, switch and management ports?


These all can be read by SNMP.



Is there a article that details what should be the limits? Its to adjust it for a monitoring system.


Thank you

As far as monitoring, yes it can be monitored. I monitor mine for traffic up/down get netflow etc. I guess we would need to know a bit more as to what you are looking to monitor.

As @OtakarKlier mentioned you should have defined criteria of what you are looking to monitor via SNMP. The firewall can send alerts for events itself and does a good job at that, so what I monitor from an SNMP standpoint is simple critical information in the event the firewall itself stops functioning correctly and stops sending alerts. It's very much a backup to the firewall's own alerting however. 

As for device limits, each platform is going to vary slightly the same as any other networking device. You can view those limits by running 'show system environmentals' on the device in question so you have accurate Min/Max limits.
