ENTITY-STATE-MIB provides information about the state
of physical components beyond what ENTITY-MIB defines,
including the administrative and operational state of components
in chassis-based platforms. Use this MIB in tandem with the ENTITY-MIB
to monitor the operational state of the components of a PA-7000
Series firewall (for example, line cards, fan trays, and power supplies).
For example, to troubleshoot log forwarding issues for Threat logs,
you can map the log processing card (LPC) indexes from the ENTITY-MIB
(entPhysicalDescr object) to operational state values (entStateOper
object) in the ENTITY-STATE-MIB. The operational state values use
numbers to indicate state: 1 for unknown, 2 for disabled, 3 for
enabled, and 4 for testing. The PA-7000 Series firewall is the only
Palo Alto Networks firewall that supports this MIB.
