Monitoring the Check Point Firewall - 1

To obtain statistics specific to a Check Point Firewall-1, the eG agents rely on the SNMP interface supported by the Check Point Firewall. Through the eG Enterprise's administrative interface, the port number on which the Check Point Firewall exposes its MIB as well as the SNMP community to be used for accessing the MIB must be specified.

As the three layers at the bottom of Figure 1 have already been discussed in the Monitoring Unix and Windows Servers document, the sections to come will discuss the CheckPoint Service layer alone.
