ServicePilot network-linkproof


# LinkProof

Overview

This package is designed to monitor a RadWare LinkProof Multi-WAN Switch using SNMP.

Description

This package automatically configures the ServicePilot Manager to collect statistics from the *LinkProof Multi-WAN Switch on which SNMP Service has been configured. The statistics gathered in this way include:

  • Network: Ping Response Time and Links availability
  • System: CPU and Network utilization

Requirements

  • SNMP service must be configured and started on the targeted LinkProof Multi-WAN Switch (Security: read-only SNMP community and allowed host must be set).

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

    • UDP/161 (SNMP): Between ServicePilot Manager and LinkProof Multi-WAN Switch
    • UDP/162 (SNMP Trap): (Optional) Between LinkProof Multi-WAN Switch and ServicePilot Agent
  • ServicePilot Requirements

    • ServicePilot Manager minimum version: 8.5
