Palo Alto Networks endpoints support standard and enterprise
management information bases (MIBs) that enable you to monitor the
endpoint’s physical state, utilization statistics, traps, and other
useful information. Most MIBs use object groups to describe characteristics
of the endpoint using the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) Framework.
You must load these MIBs into your SNMP manager to monitor the objects (endpoint
statistics and traps) that are defined in the MIBs (for details,
see Use an SNMP Manager to ExploreMIBsand
Objects in the PAN-OS 8.1 Administrator’s Guide).
The PAN-COMMON-MIB—which is included with the enterprise MIBs—uses
the panGlobalProtect object group. The following table describes
the objects that make up the panGlobalProtect object group.
Utilization (as a percentage) of the GlobalProtect gateway
Maximum number of tunnels allowed
Number of active tunnels
Use these SNMP objects to monitor utilization of GlobalProtect
gateways and make changes as needed. For example, if the number
of active tunnels reaches 80% or is higher than the maximum number
of tunnels allowed, you should consider adding additional gateways.
