Issue/Introduction

There is no total current connection displayed in the checkpoint firewall devices monitoring.

Environment

Release : 3.7, 20.2

Component : IM Reporting / Admin / Configuration

Resolution

The Vendor Certification (VC) "Checkpoint Firewall Connection" (internal name CheckpointFwConnectionMib) provides the metric "Total Connections"

Vendor Priority Grouping can be used to add that to the already discovered VC (It only provides two statistics which is why grouping the VC instead of moving it up in the priority is recommended).

1) Verify the VC is supported for the device in question at the DX Netops Certification Portal:

https://netops-certification.broadcom.com

2) Documentation outlining Vendor Certification priority grouping:
