How does eG Enterprise Monitor IBM Datapower?

eG Enterprise uses a single eG external agent to monitor the IBM Datapower device. The external agent can be deployed on any remote host in the environment. This agent executes various tests that connect to the SNMP MIB of the device to be monitored, and collects critical statistics of interest. Before attempting to monitor the device, ensure that the device is SNMP-enabled. To enable the eG agent to access the SNMP MIB, specify the following while configuring the tests:

  • Port number on which the target device exposes its MIB

  • SNMP community to be used for accessing the MIB

eG Enterprise can automatically discover the IBM Datapower device.
