With the Firebox product series, US-based network security specialist WatchGuard offers a line of network security appliances for small, medium and large businesses with different form factors and also for cloud-based IT infrastructures. With PRTG Network Monitor you are able to remotely monitor WatchGuard firewalls, so you always have an eye on your Firebox’s availability and performance, and can react immediately if any problems occur.

Setting up your PRTG sensors according to the guide will provide you with information such as:

  • Firebox version, name and model

  • CPU load

  • Response time

  • Traffic

  • Alarms

For more detailed information about your WatchGuard appliances you can use the WatchGuard MIB files (Management Information Base) to include additional OIDs (Object Identifiers). These can be used to create custom SNMP sensors in PRTG. Our free MIB importer tool assists you in adding these additional OIDs to PRTG and with creating custom sensors.
