Monitoring Site to Site VPN Tunnel status

Unanswered Question
Aug 7th, 2009


Please let me know if the Site to Site VPN Tunnel status can be monitored for the Cisco ASA / PIX Firewalls for eg: A Monitoring tool should send across an alert if Site to Site VPN Tunnel is down or if it is fluctuating

I have heard that with the use of MIBs and OIDs and getting them configured in the Monitoring tool , one can achieve this

Please refer to the below links and let me know if it possible to configure and whether it will give desired results.



I have this problem too.

Advantage   of VPNTTG over other SNMP based monitoring software’s is  following:   Other (commonly used) software’s are working with static OID  numbers,   i.e. whenever tunnel disconnects and reconnects, it gets  assigned a  new  OID number. This means that the historical data, gathered  on the   connection, is lost each time. However, VPNTTG works with VPN  peer’s  IP  address and it stores for each VPN tunnel historical  monitoring  data  into the SQL server and into the RRD (Round Robin  Database) file.
