  • The ENTITY-SENSOR-MIB must be available for use.
  • If it does not exist, put the text from this link http://www.simpleweb.org/ietf/mibs/modules/IETF/txt/ENTITY-SENSOR-MIB into a text file with a “.mib” filename extension.
  • Configure the SNMP community string in PAN-OS and commit the change.
  • Configure the MIB browser with the IP address of the PAN firewall, the community string, and the SNMP OID.
  • Performing a WALK provides this information:
    • The SNMP OID for the entPhySensorValue is .1.3.6.1.2.1.99.1.1.1.4.
    • The first entPhySensorValuevalues are for fans.

      Example: Fan #1 = .1.3.6.1.2.1.99.1.1.1.4.1

    • Those that follow the fans are for temperature sensors.

      Example: TempSensor #1 = .1.3.6.1.2.1.99.1.1.1.4.3

RED boxes show fan RPM data.

BLUE boxes show CPU temperature in Celsius.

GREEN box shows additional useful information.

Note:  Ignore the OID field at the top (contains 25461; represents Palo Alto Networks).  This is the OID of the highlighted panSessionActiveICMP.0 at the bottom of the table.
