This package is designed to monitor a NetApp FAS2xxx appliance using SNMP.
This package automatically configures the ServicePilot Manager to collect statistics from the NetApp appliance on which SNMP service has been installed and configured. The statistics gathered in this way include:
Interfacestatus and utilization
SNMP service must be installed, configured and started on the targeted NetApp appliance(Security: read-only SNMP community and allowed host must be set).
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 NetApp appliance
- ICMP/Echo Request (Ping): Between ServicePilot Manager and NetApp appliance
- UDP/162 (SNMP Trap): (Optional) Between NetApp appliance and ServicePilot Agent
- ServicePilot Manager minimum version: 8.5
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.
