Palo Alto Networks devices support standard and enterprise
management information bases (MIBs) that enable you to monitor the
device’s physical state, utilization statistics, traps, and other
useful information. Most MIBs use object groups to describe characteristics
of the device using the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)
Framework. You must load these MIBs into your SNMP manager to monitor
the objects (device statistics and traps) that are defined in the
MIBs (for details, see Use an SNMP Manager to Explore MIBs and Objects in
the PAN-OS 7.1 Administrator’sGuide).
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
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.
