Device restarted (uptime low) for Palo Alto Networks


Palo Alto Networks


Indeni will alert when a device has restarted.

Remediation Steps

Determine why the device was restarted.

How does this work?

This alert uses the Palo Alto Networks API to retrieve the current uptime (the equivalent of running "show system info" in CLI).

Why is this important?

When a monitoring system loses connectivity to a device, it may be difficult for it to determine whether the device restarted, or is simply unreachable. To deal with that, the uptime is tracked. The uptime of a device resetting is a clear indicator of a device restart.

Without Indeni how would you find this?

An administrator will normally find out that a device has restarted when a service outage actually occurs.
