In order to monitor your LoadMaster, you may elect to configure the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) parameters.
First, ensure that SNMP is enabled in the LoadMaster.
Go to System Configuration > Logging Options > SNMP Options and ensure that Enable SNMP is selected.
The LoadMaster has custom Management Information Bases (MIBs) which can be downloaded from our Downloads section These can then be imported to your favorite monitoring tool. Each major revision of firmware has specific Object Identifiers (OIDs) so be sure you are using the correct MIB bundle for the firmware you are running.
After importing the MIBs you will notice there are a few groups of OIDs. The grouping of OIDs under the ipvs folder will provide information concerning Layer 4 Virtual Services.
Alternately, if you have configured Layer 7 Virtual Services, you should look through the b100 grouped OIDs.
Also, if you would like to monitor the general properties and settings of the LoadMaster, feel free to view the OIDs within the b100-0 grouping.
Almost any piece of information can be pulled from the LoadMaster using SNMP. The key is determining which OID(s) you would like to track.
