Management service down (Virtual) for Check Point

Vendor

Check Point

Description

Alert if a management component is down on a device.

Remediation Steps

This may be due to someone stopping the management component itself, a licensing or a performance issue.The management service is handled by the "fwm" process (for each domain/CMA). Run "mdsstat" for more details. Review the licenses installed on the device, as well as whether or not anyone has run cpstop recently.

How does this work?

By using the Check Point built-in "cpstat mg" command, the status of the management server is retrieved.

Why is this important?

Unless the management services are running correctly, it might not be possible to manage other gateways.

Without Indeni how would you find this?

An administrator could login and manually run the command.
