How to Monitor A10 Application Delivery Controller Using eG Enterprise ?

eG Enterprise monitors the A10 Application Delivery Controller using an eG external agent on any remote host in the environment. This agent is capable of monitoring the performance of the delivery controller in the following ways:

  • By polling the SNMP MIB of the delivery controller;
  • By connecting to the SNMP traps of the delivery controller;

To enable the eG agent to use the aforesaid methodologies, a set of pre-requisites should be fulfilled. These requirements have been discussed in Pre-requisites for Monitoring the A10 Application Delivery Controller.

Pre-requisites for Monitoring the A10 Application Delivery Controller

To enable the eG agent to collect performance metrics from a A10 Application Delivery Controller, the following pre-requisites should be fulfilled:

  • The delivery controller should be SNMP-enabled.
  • The eG remote agent should be able to access the target delivery controller over the network.

Once the pre-requisites are fulfilled, manage the target delivery controller using the eG admin interface. The procedure has been discussed in Managing the A10 Application Delivery Controller topic.
