Infoblox Monitoring

Introduction to Infoblox Monitoring

​Infoblox is a DDI (DNS, DHCP and IPAM) platform. Using LogicMonitor's Infoblox package, you can monitor the appliance's CPU usage, DNS metrics, network services status, and more.

Setup Requirements

SNMP Enabled

LogicMonitor uses SNMP to query Infoblox appliances for metrics. SNMP must be configured on the Infoblox appliance, which supports SNMPv1, SNMPv2, and SNMPv3. See Infoblox's Multi-Grid Manager Administrator Guide for SNMP configuration instructions.

SNMP Credentials

LogicMonitor must provide the appropriate SNMP credentials in order to successfully access the resource. This requires setting these credentials as properties on the Infoblox host within the LogicMonitor interface. As discussed in LogicMonitor's Defining Authentication Credentials support article, the SNMP properties that must be set vary depending upon the version of SNMP in use.

LogicModules in Package

LogicMonitor's package for Infoblox consists of the following LogicModules. Please ensure that all of these LogicModules are imported into your LogicMonitor platform.

NOTE: Ensure you have the most current SNMP SysOID Maps imported in order for LogicMonitor to automatically identify and tag your device.

When setting alert thresholds on the various metrics tracked by this package, LogicMonitor follows the technology owner's best practice KPI recommendations. If necessary, we encourage you to adjust these predefined thresholds to meet the unique needs of your environment. For more information on tuning alert thresholds, see Tuning Alert Thresholds.
