Cisco ASA: Cluster Failover

Distribution: official part of Check_MK
License: GPLv3
Supported Agents: SNMP

The Cisco "Adaptive Security Appliances" (ASA) support to run as a failover cluster. This check allows to monitor whether such a cluster is running normal, or if it has failed over to the partner device for any reason.

The check will report OK as long as the correct unit has the role "active" or "standby". If a failover has occured, the check will report a WARNING status.

Additionally roles and expected status can be configured now.

If an unknown status is encountered (other than 9 or 10 in the status OIDs) it will go to UNKNOWN.

The check is not tested against un-clustered ASA devices.


One service is created for each ASA device and saves the current cluster role.
