Object Type: Service Check
Service Check Category: Firewall Checks
Description: This check monitors a Palo Alto firewall for active/standby HA status. If, when checked, the status of the firewall is determined to be different from the state specified in the check configuration, the check will enter a CRITICAL state and OmniCenter will schedule the host for a discovery poll to rediscover its instances.
Do not confuse this check with the Check Palo Alto FW HA State service check, which does not include the repoll functionality. Netreo best practices recommends adding this check to both the active and passive HA firewalls of the monitored network.
