|Description||This article describes about using 3rd party vendors to manage all the device, by get alerts when FortiGate HA status changes in the SNMP managers.|
|Scope||FortiGate, All Firmware.|
To achieve this, one needs to use an OID.
In the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), OID means an 'Object Identifier'.
To define OID, it's an address used to uniquely identify managed devices and their statuses.
So that when there would be failover, The FortiGate will send ha cluster status change trap to the SNMP managers.
1) HA cluster status change (fgtraphastatuschange).
2) HA heartbeat interface failure (fgtraphahbfail).
OID for HA in FortiGate are those that can be mention in the SNMP manager.
Once the required OID is mentioned and whenever the OID gets triggered user will receive an alert indicating changes happened as per the OID.
