This article provides steps on how to create and use a Universal Device poller (UNDP) to monitor Juniper Netscreen-ISG 2000 Firewalls. This focuses on the Juniper NetScreen-ISG 2000 code version 6.3.0r21.0. The firewall provides the following OIDs (which can be verified using a SNMP walk) to allow monitoring of FAN, Power and temperature. Primary Power Secondary Power Fan 1 CPU/Management Board Temperature System Board Temperature 1 System Board Temperature 2 


All versions of NPM 


  1. Open SolarWinds Orion Menu and Start the Universal Device Poller.

  4. Show Advanced Options in order to choose the data formatting.
  5. Select Keep Historical Data if you need to store the data for that device.
  6. Enable the poller if you want to start polling immediately
  7. Choose a group for your UnDP.
  8. In the next page, assign your UnDP to the nodes that need to be polled.
  9. Test that all the nodes can be polled.
  10. Choose how to display the UnDP and on what pages you want it displayed on the Web Console.

The following video tutorial shows how to create a Universal Device Poller, and how to use the information gathered.
