Can you fully monitor Sonicwall firewalls with PRTG?




Our organization is in need of a network monitoring tool and I am testing PRTG to see its capabilities. We have two Sonicwall NSA3500 and two NSA220 that we would like to fully monitor. Is PRTG capable of doing that?

Can you point me to any articles that describe the required configuration to make this happen?

It's hard to answer the question of whether or not PRTG can fully monitor a device but we do have many ways built into PRTG for monitoring Sonicwall devices. Please let me know what specifically you are looking to monitor and I can better answer.

What I can say is that monitoring the traffic data from a sonicwall we definitely can do in multiple ways, through SNMP and Netflow and we also have sensors pre-built for monitoring VPN connections and a health sensor that will give you CPU, temperature and other stats depending on the firmware version and Sonicwall you are running. Please let me know if there is anything else you are looking to monitor on the device.
