Cisco IPS 4260 - Monitoring

Unanswered Question
May 11th, 2010


we have installed two cisco ips 4260 in our test environment and want now to monitor the inspection load, which is from my point of view much more important than the cpu load, with the open source network tool cacti. I want to send alerts when a specific threshold has exceeded.

I already monitor the cpu load, the interfaces with snmp. Do you know if it is possible to get the value of the inspection load of the ips by snmp?

Which others parameters of the ips sensors are important to monitor?


I have this problem too.

At this time the sensor's inspection load is not exposed via a SNMP OID.  There is an enhancement request to add SNMP monitoring of various sensor health metrics in a future release.
