Monitoring the Juniper SA Device

By executing a couple of simple tests on the SNMP MIB exposed by the Juniper SA device, the eG external agent performs 24 x 7 monitoring of the SA device, extracts critical performance data from the device, and reports the metrics so gathered to the eG manager. The eG manager in turn, maps these tests to the layers of the unique Juniper SA layer model (see Figure 3) that it prescribes for the Juniper SA device, and displays the performance data in the eG monitor console.
