How to Monitor Juniper EX Switch Using eG Enterprise?
eG Enterprise adopts agentless approach to monitor the Juniper EX Switch. A single eG external agent is all that is required to monitor a switch. This agent, when deployed on a remote host, executes tests that connect to the SNMP MIB of the switch to be monitored, and collects statistics of interest from it. The key pre-requisite for monitoring is to SNMP enable the switch. Once this requirement is kept in place, start monitoring the switch. There are two broad steps for monitoring the switch:
Managing the Juniper EX Switch
The eG Enterprise cannot automatically discover the Juniper EX Switch. This implies that you need to manually add the component for monitoring. Remember that the eG Enterprise automatically manages the components that are added manually. To add a Juniper EX Switch, do the following:
In the COMPONENT page that appears next, select Juniper EX Switch as the Component type. Then, click the Add New Component button. This will invoke Figure 1.
Configuring the tests
When you attempt to sign out, a list of unconfigured tests will appear as shown in Figure 2.
