Monitoring standby member in a cluster

Hi,

is there a way we can monitor the remote site standby cluster member to make sure its up in case the active member dies the standby takes over? We have IPSec tunnel between remote side and the data center.

Thanks.

Re: Monitoring standby member in a cluster

Hi,

On your remote site gateway cluster property, ClusterXL and VRRP there is a tracking option there when there is changes in the status of cluster members. Default is set to Log. Change it to forexample Mail alert to recieve an mail each time there is a change. 

Re: Monitoring standby member in a cluster

Thanks Enis,

This is what we do to get alerts when the active member becomes standby. But we had a situation where our monitoring tool was monitoring active firewall and the standby firewall's AC adapter was died. Unfortunately, the active firewall died and there was not 'standby' firewall available to fail over. 

Thanks.

Re: Monitoring standby member in a cluster

The best practices is - off course - to monitor each nodes of clusters using snmp and snmp-trap‌

You can use Best Practices - SNMP .

Do you have such monitoring tools?

Re: Monitoring standby member in a cluster

I guess nothing much can be done from the CP side, your best bet would be to rely on a external network monitoring tool (any snmp based monitoring tool will do)
