Methods for monitoring third-party device status

The Log Server can actively probe the status of third-party components using several alternative methods.

The supported methods are:
  • SNMPv1
  • SNMPv2c
  • SNMPv3
  • Pings
  • TCP connection probes

When one of the SNMP status probing methods is used, you can also set up statistics reception for the device. Statistics reception relies on SNMPv1 traps sent by the third-party device.

The SMC supports statistical monitoring of the following details:
  • Amount of free and used memory
  • CPU load
  • Interface statistics
