Add a Device Group
You must add a device to one or more device groups before you can apply rules and playbooks to a device.
To add a device group:
- Click Configuration > Device Groups.
The Device Group Configuration page appears.
- Click the add (+) icon.
The Add Device Group page appears.
- Configure the device group fields as per Table 1.
Fields marked with asterisk (*) are mandatory.
- Do one of the following:
Click Save to save the configuration. Selecting this option does not deploy the new device group configuration.
You can click the Health Configuration Deployment Status icon on the top-right corner to commit, deploy, or rollback the configuration settings. For more information, see Commit or Roll Back Configuration Changes in Paragon Insights.
A confirmation message appears stating that the device group is successfully created. The new device group is added to the Device Group page.
Click Save and Deploy to save and immediately deploy the device group configuration.
A confirmation message appears that device group is successfully created and deployed.
Table 1: Fields on Add Device Group Page
Enter a name for the device group.
Enter a description for the device group.
Select one or more devices to add to the device group.
Flow Ingest Deploy Nodes
Select one or more nodes from the existing nodes list to specify which nodes must receive the NetFlow traffic if your installation is a multi-node installation using Kubernetes.
Ingest Frequency Profiles
Select one or more profiles from the list that should override the rules or sensor frequency settings.
Select one or more health report profiles from the list to generate reports for the device group. Reports include alarm statistics, device health data, and device-specific information (such as hardware and software specifications).
Select a retention policy from the list for time series data used for root cause analysis (RCA) in this device group. By default, the retention policy is 7 days. For more information, see Configure a Retention Policy and Paragon Insights Time Series Database Overview.
You can collect logs of different severity level for a device group. Use the following fields to configure which log levels to collect.
Select one of the following levels for log messages that you want to collect for the device group:
Note: By default, the logging level is set to Error.
Service Logging Overrides
Select the log level for any of the following services that you want to configure differently from the Global Log Level setting:
Note: The log level that you select here for a specific service takes precedence over the Global Log Level setting.
(Native GPB sensors only) Enter the port numbers on which the Junos Telemetry Interface (JTI) native protocol buffer connections are established as comma separated values.
(NetFlow sensors only) Enter the port numbers on which the NetFlow sensor data is received as comma separated values. The port numbers must be unique.
Enter the UDP ports on which syslog messages are received as comma separated values.
SNMP Notification Ports
Enter the SNMP Notification port numbers as comma separated values.
To improve the performance and disk space utilization of the time series database, you can configure data summarization methods to summarize the raw data collected.
Use the following fields to configure data summarization:
For more information, see About the Data Summarization Page.
Data Rollup Summarization
Select the rollup summarization policy for the device group.
You can configure the PCE to publish sensor and field data to AMQP/Kafka servers for a specific device group:
Select one or more tagging profiles from the existing profiles list. Tagging makes use of profiles to set conditions, define new fields and keys, and insert values into those fields after creation. For more information, see Paragon Insights Tagging Overview.
