    I'm new to Juniper and learning the OS and devices as we have a SRX 240 cluster and need to monitor some interfaces with our network monitoring software (SolarWinds). Given our configuration below do we monitor the reth5 or reth5.0 interface?
    Thanks for any help.

    set interfaces ge-0/0/5 gigether-options redundant-parent reth5
    set interfaces ge-5/0/5 gigether-options redundant-parent reth5
    set interfaces reth5 description **Core_Switch_UPLINK**
    set interfaces reth5 redundant-ether-options redundancy-group 1
    set interfaces reth5 unit 0 family inet sampling input
    set interfaces reth5 unit 0 family inet sampling output
    set interfaces reth5 unit 0 family inet address 10.176.0.1/24

    reth5 up up
    reth5.0 up up inet 10.176.0.1/24

    Hi, 

     

    You are missing that part : 

     

    set forwarding-options sampling input rate 1000
    set forwarding-options sampling family inet output flow-server solarwinds-ip port 2055
    set forwarding-options sampling family inet output flow-server solarwinds-ip source-address source-ip
    set forwarding-options sampling family inet output flow-server solarwinds-ip version 5

     

    Regards.

    Abdellah:

    We have that in our config but I didn't include in my post. My question is: with SolarWinds you have to select in their software which interfaces to monitor. Do I place the sampling commands on interface reth5 or reth5.0 as both show as up in SolarWinds? This help which interface to select in SolarWinds.

    Thanks again.
