Using Device Alarms

 

Use this page to view system‐generated alarms. Alarms provide information about the status and the health state of the system. The alarms received from the Junos Space platform are viewed from Security Director. These generated alarms can help you to troubleshoot issues associated with your system.

Note

On the right side of the banner is a bell-shaped icon called the Notification Center. Clicking this icon reveals lists of the most recent critical alerts and alarms in Security Director. Clicking the View All Alarms or View All Alerts link takes you to the detail page for the respective topic.

Before You Begin

  • Read the Alerts and Alarms Overview topic.

  • Configure the SRX Series devices to send SNMP traps to the Junos Space platform. The alarms displayed are new alarms based on the SNMP traps received by Security Director.

  • In case of Space cluster, the SNMP target should be the eth0 IP address of all the nodes in Space cluster.

  • The existing alarms prior to SNMP target configuration will not be displayed in Security Director.

  • To view the alarms in Security Director, add the following configuration to the managed SRX Series devices through the CLI:

    set snmp trap-group sdfm version all

    set snmp trap-group sdfm destination-port 10164

    set snmp trap-group sdfm categories authentication

    set snmp trap-group sdfm categories chassis

    set snmp trap-group sdfm categories link

    set snmp trap-group sdfm categories routing

    set snmp trap-group sdfm categories startup

    set snmp trap-group sdfm categories rmon-alarm

    set snmp trap-group sdfm categories vrrp-events

    set snmp trap-group sdfm categories configuration

    set snmp trap-group sdfm categories services

    set snmp trap-group sdfm categories chassis-cluster

    set snmp trap-group sdfm categories sonet-alarms

    set snmp trap-group sdfm targets x.x.x.x (eth0 IP of space)

  • Review the Device Alarms main page for an understanding of existing device alarms. See Device Alarms Main Page Fields for field descriptions.
