Sonicwall Firewall Dashboard

  • What Grafana version and what operating system are you using?
    I’m using Grafana server version 10.3.3

  • What are you trying to achieve?
    To build a Sonicwall Dashboard

  • How are you trying to achieve it?
    I am using snmp exporter to poll my sonicwall firewall. The generator had trouble with the loaded sonicwall mibs and couldn’t walk the OID’s so I had to use the OID Alias Names instead. They are;

    • sonicCurrentRAMUtil
      - sonicMaxConnCacheEntries
      - sonicCurrentConnCacheEntries
      - sonicCurrentCPUUtil
      - sonicNatTranslationCount
      - sonicCurrentManagementCPUUtil
      - sonicCurrentFwdAndInspectCPUUtil
      - snwlSysModel
      - snwlSysSerialNumber
      - snwlSysFirmwareVersion
      - snwlSysROMVersion
      - snwlSysAssetNumber

Could someone help me build a dashboard with these metrics?

Welcome @mbplaframboise

I also have a SonicWall (model TZ350). Which model do you have?

I am happy to collaborate with you and create a dashboard. Which time zone are you in?

Hi! That’s great thanks. For security purposes I’d rather not share my model number, but would love to collaborate with you. I’m in the EST time zone. How about yourself? Which time zone are you in?

Yes, I am in EST (Detroit). I will send you a message with some questions, next steps, etc. and once this whole thing is working, we can publish the solution to, write a blog post, share here, etc.

That sounds great! I live close to London Ontario, in Canada.
