How to Monitor Load Balancer VA R20?

eG Enterprise monitors the Load Balancer VA R20 using an eG external agent on any remote host in the environment. This agent is capable of monitoring the performance of the load balancer appliance by polling the SNMP MIB of the load balancer.

Pre-requisites for Monitoring the Load Balancer VA R20

To enable the eG agent to collect performance metrics from the Load Balancer VA R20, the following pre-requisites should be fulfilled:

  • The load balancer should be SNMP-enabled.
  • The eG external agent should be able to access the target load balancer over the network.

Once the pre-requisites are fulfilled, manage the target load balancer using the eG administrative interface. The procedure has been discussed in Managing the Load Balancer VA R20 topic.
