LogicMonitor’s Silver Peak monitoring package leverages the VXOA REST API to monitor and map Silver Peak devices and their tunnels.
Add Resources Into Monitoring
Add your Silver Peak devices into monitoring. For more information on adding resources into monitoring, see Adding Devices.
Assign Properties to Resources
The following custom properties must be set on the Silver Peak resource within LogicMonitor. For more information on setting properties, see Resource and Instance Properties.
|silverpeak.user||VXOA REST API username|
|silverpeak.pass||VXOA REST API password|
Relevant documentation can be found at VXOA REST API Guide.
From the LogicMonitor public repository, import all Silver Peak LogicModules, which are listed in the LogicModules in Package section of this support article. If these LogicModules are already present, ensure you have the most recent versions.
Once the LogicModules are imported (assuming all previous setup requirements have been met), data collection will automatically commence.
Consideration: Enable Stats Exports
For full tunnel metrics, use the Enable stats export global configuration to allow the Collector access to a GMS server folder that contains the stats in .csv format, specifically “tunnels.csv”. See the “Configuring the GMS Server’s System Properties” section of the Silver Peak Global Management System Operator’s Guide for details.
DataSources will print error messages to the console when present. These errors can be seen in the output when manually polling data (from the Raw Data tab that displays from the Resources page for each DataSource). DataSources are designed to handle errors gracefully and will attempt to grab any available data even when errors occur.
LogicModules in Package
LogicMonitor’s package for Silver Peak consists of the following LogicModules. For full coverage, please ensure that all of these LogicModules are imported into your LogicMonitor platform.

|SilverPeak_Memory||DataSource||Monitors Silver Peak VXOA appliance memory using the VXOA REST API.|
|SilverPeak_NextHops||DataSource||Monitors WAN next hops of Silver Peak VXOA appliances using the VXOA REST API.|
|SilverPeak_System_Status||DataSource||Monitors overall system status of Silver Peak VXOA appliances including bad tunnels, unreachable next hops, memory, and disk utilization using the VXOA REST API.|
|SilverPeak_Tunnels||DataSource||Monitors WAN tunnels between Silver Peak VXOA appliances using the VXOA REST API.|
|addCategory_SilverPeak||PropertySource||Adds a value of “SilverPeak” to the system.categories property if silverpeak.user and silverpeak.pass properties are set and can authenticate to the VXOA REST API.|
|addERI_SilverPeak||ERISource||Sets Silver Peak ERI and Router ERT.|
|SilverPeak_Topology||TopologySource||Maps Silver Peak tunnel SD-WAN topologies.|
When setting static datapoint thresholds on the various metrics tracked by this package’s DataSources, 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 datapoint thresholds, see Tuning Static Thresholds for Datapoints.
