I would like to monitor my Sophos UTM appliance with PRTG but there are no native sensors for Sophos UTM. How can I set up UTM monitoring with PRTG nevertheless?

Monitoring Sophos UTM Firewalls with PRTG

Out of the box, PRTG includes a broad variety of sensors for SNMP capable devices. For other device types, like Sophos UTM Solutions, PRTG provides the great possibility to create custom sensors. For example, if the device that you want to monitor supports SNMP, you can try to get a MIB file from the vendor, convert it with the MIB Importer into an OIDlib file for PRTG, and use it with the SNMP Library sensor.


Update: For the Sophos UTM devices, we provide a Device Template to add the sensors using the auto-discovery. See below for download and instructions.


Using Device Templates to Monitor Sophos UTM Devices

We created a Device Template using the Sophos MIB files as well as the vendor's image to simplify the import. You can download the zip-archive from here: PRTG_Sophos_20170112.zip


Update: For the Sophos UTM9/XG devices, there is an updated version of the template available on GitLab. Direct link for installation download.


With the help of this device template you can create the following sensors:

Follow the steps below to set up your Sophos UTM monitoring.

Steps to Go

  1. Download PRTG_Sophos_20170112.zip
  2. Extract all files into the folder of your your PRTG installation under %programfiles%PRTG Network Monitor.
  3. In PRTG, create a new device.
  4. Navigate to the settings page of the device.
  5. Choose Device Type > Sensor Management > Automatic sensor creation using specific device template(s) > Sophos UTM9 and let PRTG create the Sophos UTM sensors for you.
  6. Enjoy monitoring your Sophos UTM device!

Notes

The provided files will add the most relevant monitoring metrics for Sophos UTM devices. According to the Sophos MIB file, there are no additional OIDs available right now using SNMP.

Please note that we cannot provide any support for these OIDs, nor can we guarantee that they work as expected.

Hi mathnahtnaodel,

I'm not sure whether Sophos provides data about hard disks at all by SNMP. I've found different threads stating it might work by editing snmpd.conf on the UTM while others were like "No, it does not work and there's a feature request at Sophos pending about it".

If the SNMP Disk Free or SNMP Linux Disk Free sensors do not work, then I would recommend to contact Sophos about clarification if it is possible at all.

Kind regards,

Erhard

Hi mathnahtnaodel,

Then I'm afraid you need to contact Sophos about that.

Kind regards,

Erhard

How about the newer Sophos XG models? Do the provided mib file and the instructions above still work?

I found a thread on their support with another mib but haven't tested it yet. https://community.sophos.com/products/xg-firewall/f/sophos-xg-firewall-general-discussion/75477/has-anyone-got-snmp-monitoring-working/367787#367787

Hello prehcm,

I cannot verify this as we don't have a Sophos XG lying around here. Give it a shot to find out, otherwise try the other MIB as described here for example. Otherwise contact us by email so we can dig deeper into this and also send us this other MIB file.

Kind regards,

Erhard

Is there any sensors that monitor the UTM VPN Connection status (up/down) and VPN Traffics and bandwidth?

Hello jbkatutu,

If it's not in the MIB, then no, it appears they do not provide those metrics by SNMP, see also here for example.

Kind regards,

Erhard
