How to Monitor Juniper SA Device Using eG Enterprise?

eG Enterprise adopts agentless approach to monitor the Juniper SA device. A single eG external agent is all that is required to monitor the Juniper SA device. This agent, when deployed on a remote host, executes tests that connect to the SNMP MIB of the Juniper SA device to be monitored, and collects statistics of interest from it. The key pre-requisite for monitoring the Juniper SA is to check whether the Juniper SA device is SNMP-enabled or not. Once this requirement is fulfilled, manage the Juniper SA device component using eG admin interface to start monitoring the Juniper SA device. The steps for managing the Juniper SA device are explained in the following section.

Managing the Juniper SA Device

To manage the Juniper SA device, do the following:

  1. Log into the eG administrative interface.
  2. Since the eG Enterprise cannot automatically discover a Juniper SA device, you need to manually add the component using the COMPONENTS page (Infrastructure-> Components -> Add/Modify) (see Figure 1). Remember that components manually added are managed automatically. Discovered components, however, are managed using the COMPONENTS - MANAGE/UNMANAGE page.

  3. When you attempt to sign out, a list of unconfigured tests appears (see Figure 2).

  4. Click on the Ive Service test to configure it. To know how to configure the test, click here.
  5. The next time you try to sign out of the admin interface, you will be prompted to configure the Network Interfaces test. To configure this test, click on the Network Interfaces test, refer to the Monitoring Cisco Routers document.
  6. Finally, sign out of the eG administrative interface.
