I would like to monitor and F5 load balancer with CA eHealth but i'm not sure which Technology should I use in the discovery policy to discover it.
I have selected everything buu some technologies the is no MIB support upon discovery.
These are the variables that i need to ticket on.
Device status: downHigh CPU: > 80%High memory utilization: > 80%Total Active connection: >500000Interface load: > 80%Interface status: downPool member status: downVirtual IP address status: down
Please advise if u have done this before.
I use a policy with the following technologies:
but I don't know, how to get informations like Pool member Status with eHealth.
Are you able to get the other information except for Pool member status?
From my discovery it looks like Systems give me more valuable elements as compared to others.
I think, you should not think "-RH or -SH or -AH".
Try using all (or more) element types.
You're right, Systems may give you more valuable elements as compared to others, but maybe , some -RH or -AH Elements will be helpfull too.
Some of the variables you are looking for may not be supported by eHealth for your device. The best place to start is by reviewing the eHealth device certification support site:
CA -- Certified Devices for eHealth
You will be able to find your device and a list of agent types/MTF files which are supported for it. If you then drill into each agent type/MTF file, you will find a list of supported variables and OIDs which eHealth collects data from.
Once you determine what variables are supported for your device, it sounds like you are looking to have events/alarms triggered based on threshold value? If so, you will want to look into using Live Exceptions.
The only variables which you listed which you might not be able to trigger events on would be the last 3, for a 'down' state. Again, it will depend on what variables we support for your device but typically when speaking about a device or interface being down, the state is not something we typically track and users find they need o resort to monitoring availability and/or reachability.
If you require assistance with setting up Live Exception rules and monitoring you may want to consider logging a support ticket.
