# Checkpoint Firewall

Overview

This package is built to monitor Checkpoint Firewall devices using SNMP.

Description

This package automatically configures the ServicePilot Manager to collect statistics from the Checkpoint Firewall on which SNMP Service has been configured. The statistics gathered in this way include:

  • Network: Ping Response Time and Interfaces activity (packets treatment)
  • System: CPU, memory and Disk
  • Environment: Fan, Temperature and Power Supply

Requirements

  • SNMP Service must be configured (Security: read-only SNMP community and allowed host must be set) and started on each target device.

  • Network Flows - It is necessary to ensure network connectivity between ServicePilot and the monitored device. In case of a network infrastructure with a firewall, all of the following flows must be opened:

    • UDP/161 (SNMP): Between ServicePilot Manager and Checkpoint Firewall
    • ICMP/Echo Request (Ping): Between ServicePilot Manager and Checkpoint Firewall
    • UDP/162 (SNMP Trap): (Optional) Between Checkpoint Firewall and ServicePilot Agent
  • ServicePilot Requirements

    • ServicePilot Manager minimum version: 8.5

Installation

Before adding a resource to monitor, make certain that all pre-requisites are in place and if a ServicePilot Agent is required, that it is communicating correctly with the ServicePilot Manager.

Add resource using Views Configuration web interface

  1. As an administrative user of ServicePilot, open the ServicePilot web interface.
  2. Navigate to Administration. The Configuration > Views web page will open.
  3. Click on the view in which to place the new resource in the Views hierarchy on the left of the interface. The View editor section will show the existing view contents.
  4. From the Packages list on the right of the interface, click and drag the network-checkpoint-firewall package into the View editor and let go.
  5. The Package properties dialog box will open to allow resource configuration.
  6. Click OK to close the Package properties dialog box. Note that the dialog box will not close if required parameters are not set.
  7. Click Save to apply the new resource to ServicePilot configuration.
