1 Check Point Firewall Metrics

This chapter provides descriptions for all Check Point Firewall metric categories, and tables list and describe associated metrics for each category. The tables also provide user actions if any of the metrics for a particular category support user actions. Shaded rows represent key columns for a particular category.

Configuration Management Metrics

Configuration Management metrics consist of the following categories:

Firewall Summary Metrics

The metrics in this category represent a Check Point Firewall Installation. The metrics contain details of the firewall name, type, and version, and also list the security policy installed on the firewall instance.

  • Table Name — MGMT_EMX_CPFW_SUMMARY

  • View Name — MGMT_EMX_CPFW_SUMMARY_VIEW

Default Collection Interval — Every 24 hours
