How to monitor HPE ARUBA 8400 network devices

Monitor HPE ARUBA 8400

What is a Aruba Switch?

HPE Aruba 8400 series switches are flagship switching products manufactured and commercialized by Hewlett Packard Enterprise.

Aruba Switch monitoring

This package is designed to monitor an HPE Aruba 8400 switch using SNMP.

This package automatically configures the ServicePilot Agent to monitor HPE Aruba 8400 switch based on an SNMP collection.

The statistics gathered in this way include:

  • Network: Ping Response Time and Interfaces activity
  • System: CPU and memory
  • Environment: Chassis sensors


  • SNMP Service must be configured (Security: read-only SNMP community and allowed host must be set) and started on the targeted machine.

  • Network Flows - It is necessary to ensure network connectivity between ServicePilot and the monitored device.

    • UDP/161 (SNMP): Between ServicePilot Agent and HPE Aruba 8400
    • ICMP/Echo Request (Ping): Between ServicePilot Agent and HPE Aruba 8400
    • UDP/162 (SNMP Trap): (Optional) Between HPE Aruba 8400 and ServicePilot Agent


Before adding a resource to monitor, make certain that all pre-requisites are in place.

Follow the documentation to add a resource to ServicePilot.

Key field notes

  1. General tab:

  2. IP address/FQDN: Specify the IP address, host name or FQDN, as resolvable by the machine on which ServicePilot Agent is running

  3. Interfaces tab:

  4. Interfaces: Enable automatic interface discovery

  5. Interface Filter: include only network interfaces with network connection names matching this pattern. If the first character of this field is a ! then exclude interfaces instead. The field is a | separated list of interface network connection names with * wildcard characters allowed. If the pattern starts and ends with / then this field is a regular expression instead.

  6. Custom interface speeds (bps) separated with '|': For network interfaces that do not report correct interface speeds (for example, asymmetric interfaces), a | separated list of speed overrides can be specified. Each element of the list consists of an SNMP interface table index or name or alias, an incoming speed and an outgoing speed, comma separated.

  7. Custom interface names separated with '|': To override the name of an interface specify a | separated list of interface index or interface name and new name, comma separated.

  8. Discover only connected interfaces: When looking for new interfaces, ignore all interfaces that are currently disconnected

Note: Each element name in the list is a regular expression as defined by Like Operator (Visual Basic)

  1. Monitoring Options tab:

  2. ICMP Ping: Include ICMP Ping reachability and latency

  3. System: Obtain CPU and memory usage

  4. Temperature: tick to get temperature statistics

  5. Fans: tick to get fan activity

  6. Power Supplies: tick to power supply activity

  7. In the Policies tab, specify the policy or policies to apply to the resource


MIBs Used:

  • RFC1213-MIB
  • IF-MIB
