Couple months ago i was desperately looking for monitoring tool that could combine all the data into one place. After doing some digging on the internet, i found most suitable tools for my need which is monitoring my router for throughput graphics, it’s called Zabbix. It has everything i need and i have had found this tools is very easy to configure ( not too easy but version 4 was not that hard compare to previous version so i’ve heard.
This tools provide such an amazing features especially for monitoring part for juniper srx device and personally it’s work really great.
Open zabbix website and head to download tab.
Select “For Production Use”
Choose Latest version of Zabbix (4.2) and choose Centos 7 and MySQL
Follow next step shown below
After making sure it was running as it should. Now it’s time to add your network device (in my case i have juniper device) to start monitoring in out traffic.
Now, before we add juniper into Zabbix, we need to active snmp protocol on juniper. Here’s how
Log in to your juniper device and enter to configuration mode using this command
[email protected]% cli
[email protected]> configure
Next is to config your snmp to allow zabbix to read data from juniper.
[email protected]# set snmp location HO contact <your email address> community public
Save change your juniper configuration by running this command
[email protected]# commit
Now, go back to your zabbix page and start the adding process
Log in with provided credential (usually with username Admin and password zabbix).
|Note : Before you can add juniper into zabbix, you need to download juniper template for zabbix and add into zabbix , you can click and follow the guide from link below|
Now go to “Configuration” and select “Hosts”
Select “Create host”
Insert the necessary detail needed. For the interface show, by default zabbix enable Agent interface but we’re not gonna use it. You can remove it by press the remove link on the right and then choose snmp interface. Press Add to finish
After finishing add the host, it will show on the page like picture below
