CheckPoint Firewall Hardware Monitoring

In addition to the check_snmp_cpfw.pl where you can keep control of active connections, the Secure Virtual Network or the HA status I wanted to keep track of the basic hardware conditions of CP devices.

For this I’ve extended the check_snmp_environment.pl ( check_snmp_environment.pl.tar ) adding in addition to other platforms also the SNMP support for CheckPoint firewalls. The information covers now:

  • Temperature of CPU and System ( Motherboard )
  • Fan rotation speed ( Reads dynamically all available fans )

The check provides also the possibility to set thresholds for those values.

CheckPoint Hardware monitoring output

The provided perfdata:

Perfdata of CPU and System Temperature
Perfdata of the fans

In total this check supports now those Hardware:

  •     cisco : All Cisco equipements : voltage,temp,fan,power supply (will try to check everything in the env mib)
  •     nokia : Nokia IP platforms : fan and power supply
  •     cpfw : CheckPoint Firewal: fans, temperature
  •     bc : BlueCoat platforms : fans, power supply, voltage, disks
  •     iron : IronPort platforms : fans, power supply, temp
  •     foundry : Foundry Network platforms : power supply, temp
  •     linux : Net-SNMP with LM-SENSORS : temp, fan, volt, misc
  •     ciscoSW : Card and module status check on Cisco
  •     extremeSW : Component status check on Extreme
  •     juniper : Component status check on Juniper

Project Manager at Würth Phoenix
After my graduation in Applied Computer Science at the Free University of Bolzano I decided to start my professional career outside the province. With a bit of good timing and good luck I went into the booming IT-Dept. of Geox in the shoe district of Montebelluna, where I realized how a big IT infrastructure has to grow and adapt to quickly changing requirements. During this experience I had also the nice possibility to travel the world, while setting up the various production and retail areas of this company. Arrived at Würth Phoenix I started developing on our monitoring solution NetEye. Today, in my position as Consulting an Project Manager I am continuously heading to implement our solutions to meet the expectation of your enterprise customers.
