To get metrics from your FortiGate in Grafana using Telegraf and InfluxDB. Enable SNMP on your FortiGate Put the following telegraf config in your /etc/telegraf/telegraf.d directory Edit the the agent IP and community string as appropriate # # Retrieves SNMP values from remote agents [[inputs.snmp]] agents = [ "" ] timeout = "10s" retries = 3 version = 2 community = "monitoring" # ## SNMPv3 auth parameters sec_name = "sec_name" auth_protocol = "SHA" # Values: "MD5", "SHA", "" auth_password = "auth_pass" sec_level = "authPriv" # Values: "noAuthNoPriv", "authNoPriv", "authPriv" # #context_name = "" priv_protocol = "AES" # Values: "DES", "AES", "" priv_password = "priv_pass" name = "FortiGate" [[inputs....

Fortinet FortiADC in Grafana

FortiADC is is a application delivery controllers (loadbalancer). The devices metrics are availalbe via SNMP. So it’s quite easy to collect those and display them in Grafana. Pre Install Make sure you have installed InfluxDB as the time-series database Telegraf as collector first. Optional you can also include the FortiADC logs when they are in elasticsearch. I use the Greylog sollution for this. Quick Start Get the latest files, at my GitHub page...

Docsis stats from ARRIS Ziggo modem

I have at home a Ziggo cable internet connection. The modem that Ziggo provides is a Arris modem. I have this modem in bridge mode because I have my own router. But I like to get some DOCSIS statistics from this modem. The modem provide these via a kind of web snmp output, but this is not very useful. Ziggo Connect box To parse this output into something more readable I create a crude oneliner script....

Huawei Dorado all flash metrics in Grafana

Recently I got my hands on a nice all flash storage from Huawei, the Dorado 5000. Off course I wanted to see if my Grafana dashboard I created for the Huawei Oceanstor series was also working on the Dorado, most is working, but some mibs are different and not all performance metrics that are availble on the Oceanstor are on the Dorado. So I adjusted the Telegraf and Grafana dashboard to work correclty with the Dorado....

Huawei OceanStor metrics in Grafana

I manage a couple of storages at work. I got a few Huawei OceanStor storages. v2 as wel v3 storages. There is some commercial tooling from Huawei available to gather metrics, but that didn’t fit my needs. I found out that all or almost all metrics that I need are available via SNMP. So it was not hard to setup a Grafana dashboard with all metrics. Pre install Make sure you have installed InfluxDB as the time-series database Telegraf as the collector first....

zswap metrics with Telegraf

A couple of weeks ago I discover zswap. zswap is a Linux kernel feature that provides a compressed write-back cache for swapped pages, as a form of virtual memory compression. Instead of moving memory pages to a swap device when they are to be swapped out, zswap performs their compression and then stores them into a memory pool dynamically allocated in the system RAM. Later writeback to the actual swap device is deferred or even completely avoided, resulting in a significantly reduced I/O for Linux systems that require swapping; the tradeoff is the need for additional CPU cycles to perform the compression....
