Hello Palo Alto Community,
I created a few Cacti Templates which allow you to quickly and easily monitor Palo Alto Networks firewalls with SNMP. There are 5 different templates corresponding to the 5 different Firewall families, PA-200, PA-500, PA-20xx, PA-40xx, PA-50xx.
Using these with Cacti (www.cacti.net), these Host templates will monitor the following sets variables, create historical graphs of these variables (example Graphs listed below):
If you know of other OIDs which you feel the broader community would like monitored, I would be happy to add them to the templates.
Once cacti is installed on your favorite OS, you simply connect to the Cacti web interface and import these host templates. Then you can add devices for Cacti to SNMP Poll/Monitor and you have a long term graphical representation of what the firewall is doing, how much traffic it is seeing, how many sessions it is supporting, etc.
Hope these help,
