Monitoring F5 BIG-IP failover status



Your Vote:




I need monitor BIG-IP failover status using PRTG. Snmpwalk run on the machine gives an output as below:

snmpwalk -v3 -u prtg -l AuthPriv -a SHA -A xxxxxx -x DES -X xxxxxxxx localhost

---Active member---
F5-BIGIP-SYSTEM-MIB::sysCmFailoverStatusId.0 = INTEGER: active(4)
F5-BIGIP-SYSTEM-MIB::sysCmFailoverStatusStatus.0 = STRING: ACTIVE
F5-BIGIP-SYSTEM-MIB::sysCmFailoverStatusColor.0 = INTEGER: green(0)
F5-BIGIP-SYSTEM-MIB::sysCmFailoverStatusSummary.0 = STRING: 1/1 active

---Standby member---

F5-BIGIP-SYSTEM-MIB::sysCmFailoverStatusId.0 = INTEGER: standby(3)
F5-BIGIP-SYSTEM-MIB::sysCmFailoverStatusStatus.0 = STRING: STANDBY
F5-BIGIP-SYSTEM-MIB::sysCmFailoverStatusColor.0 = INTEGER: gray(4)
F5-BIGIP-SYSTEM-MIB::sysCmFailoverStatusSummary.0 = STRING: 1/1 standby

In PRTG a custom sensor with oid goes to error state

"No such object (SNMP error # 222)".

Could you help me a how to setup a sensor to monitor the failover status ?

Thanks you
