Release : 3.7
Component : IM Reporting / Admin / Configuration
This functionality requires CA Performance Management 3.7.5 and later
A new vendor certification and metric family are defined for Check Point Virtual Firewalls.
To add Check Point Virtual Firewalls to your managed devices, complete the following steps:
Use SNMPv3 profiles to discover the physical parent devices.
Attach the new Context System metric family to each device.
Wait for discovery to complete. The Check Point Virtual Firewalls are automatically discovered.All the Check Point Virtual Firewall items have the same IP address as the parent device. However, each Check Point
Virtual Firewall item has its own context name. All the polling data for the Check Point Virtual Firewall item (CPU, Memory, Interfaces, and so on) appear under the context name.
The context field of the SNMPv3 profile does not need to be populated.
