Monitoring and Reporting

  • Last updated on

The Barracuda CloudGen Firewall offers multiple audit and reporting functionalities to help you monitor activities throughout your network.

Firewall Auditing

FW audit is a strictly chronological log of all sessions and events on your Barracuda CloudGen Firewall.

For more information, see FW Audit.

Reporting Networking Information with IPFIX

Report networking information based on the IPFIX protocol to external collectors by enabling IPFIX streaming.

For more information, see Reporting of Network Flow Information with IPFIX.

Box-Level Monitoring

Monitor network routes and, if your are using a high availability cluster, the HA partner unit. HA units can also use an additional network connection for heartbeat communication.

For more information, see How to Configure Box-Level Monitoring.

HA Monitoring  

Configure monitoring policies for your services. You can define monitoring targets as IP addresses (layer-3 monitoring) and, optionally, interfaces (layer-2 monitoring).

For more information, see HA Monitoring.

Hardware, Disk, and CPU Load Monitoring

Enable hardware monitoring and specify watermark settings for disk monitoring. To monitor the CPU load of the Barracuda CloudGen Firewall, you can limit the number of processes simultaneously waiting for execution.

For more information, see How to Configure CPU Load, Hardware and Disk Monitoring.

SNMP Monitoring

SNMP allows a Network Management System (NMS) to remotely monitor the network and system state of the Barracuda CloudGen Firewall. You can configure important events to send SNMP traps.

For more information, see How to Configure the SNMP Service.

Configure Revision Control System Monitoring (RCS)

The Revision Control System (RCS) provides information on all configuration changes. You can also view, retrieve, and revert older configuration versions.
