Overview

Network Insight for Cisco ASAs polls data from the ASA device by a combination of SNMP and CLI polling. CLI polling requires credentials for logging in to the ASA device, and for polling the device.

Environment

  • NCM 7.7
  • NPM 12.2
  • UDT 3.3

Detail

Network Insight for Cisco ASA in NPM 12.2 requires the following credentials:

  • User name and password for logging into the ASA device. The user must be able to run the following commands on the ASA device:
    • enable
    • show run interface
    • show firewall
    • show asp drop flow
    • show mode
    • show context
    • show failover state
    • show version | include Serial
    • show running-config crypto map
    • show module
    • show failover
    • changeto system

  • Enable password: if you are using enable passwords on your ASA device, you need to provide it to allow CLI polling. Without the Enable Password, CLI polling does not work.
