As many administrators know, there is an option Suite Administration when configuring TOS using tos conf. Activating this option allows to monitor the system.

If (3) is selected and therefore the Suite Administration activated, it needs to be configured. This is done by the command

[root@TufinOS]# configure_os_monitoring

A menu opens and allows to configure the necessary options:


  • Recipient Settings

    Configure Recipients here who will get an E-Mail when Suite Administration is sending an alert.
    1. Show defined recipients
    2. Add recipient
    3. Delete recipient
    4. Modify recipient


  • SMTP Settings

    This section is to configure the Mail server for sending E-Mail to recipients in case of an alert. Besides this, authentication data for the Mail server needed to send E-Mail can be configured.
    1. Server Name
    2. Server Port
    3. User Name
    4. User Password
    5. Sender Email
    6. Mail Sending Interval


  • SNMP Settings

    TufinOS will send SNMP Traps when an alert condition is given. In this section the server, port etc. need to be configured if Traps are wanted. The support of addtional SNMP MIBs can be configured by adapting the file /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf and restarting the snmpd. 
    1. Manager IPv4 Address
    2. Manager Port
    3. Community Name
    4. Trap Sending Interval


  • Threshold Settings
    Configure Thresholds here. Please be aware that the default for CPU usage is 10%, i.e. if there is a little load on the machine, an alert will be sent.
    The options for JMS Tunnel and Stunnel are needed only, if the server is used in an HA deployment or the Central Server is in an environment using Distriubted Architecture (DA).
    1. CPU Usage (default: 10%!)
    2. Memory Usage (default 70%)
    3. Disk Usage (default 70%)
    4. Service Settings
      1. Application Server   
      2. Cron
      3. Database
      4. JMS Tunnel
      5. Stunnel
      6. Syslog
      7. Web Server


So these options might allow a tighter control and monitoring TufinOS as well as the services running on this machine.
