Monitoring RAM and CPU usage

Hello, 

what is the best and fastest way to monitor the RAM and CPU usage of the security gateways. Is ist to activate snmp on the gateways and send the data to Nagios for example.

Thanks for your infos.

Depends on your objective, but SNMP is certainly a valid approach.

If you want a CLI approach use CPview.

You can set a threshold in the SmartView Monitor to send an alert (SNMP, Mail, User Defined) when CPU or memory utilization exceeds a certain amount.  This topic was covered in the third edition of my book. The destination for the alert is set in the SmartConsole under Global Properties...Log & Alert...Alert Commands.    Note that setting alerts for policy installation events as mentioned in the book can now be configured directly in the SmartConsole by using SmartTasks in version R80.40+.
