Monitoring of Common Network Infrastrucure Components

Discussion created by bradtaylor on Dec 2, 2010

Nimsoft Team --


We have a customer (CPS) who is planning on going live by the end of the year with a large scale NMS implementation (current QoS object count > 800K !!).  To date the focus has been on configuring net_connect and interface_traffic probes, but now we are having to look at monitoring other devices on the network.


Would like to know if we have some standard "templates" or if anyone has some experience configuration monitoring for the following network devices:


 - Nokia Checkpoint NG firewall/VPN

 - IronPort Web Filtering appliances

 - TippingPoint IPS


As always any help is greatly appreciated.
