Tunnel Monitoring

I am trying to monitor if tunnels are up on our ASA 5510.  I am using snmp via What's Up to communicate with the ASA.

I read somewhere that in order to monitor the tunnel directly that I should setup an interface using the VPN endpoint IP address and the utilize a script I found to monitor that interface.  I am not real familiar with ASA or IOS how would I setup and interface for this type of use.  I have about 10 tunnels I need to monitor.

Thanks for the help.

are these ipsec vpn tunnels - presumably so? you most likely want to monitor a switch, router or server (something with fixed address that you expect to always be up) at the end of each tunnel.

can you post a link to the information you refer to regarding "an interface using the vpn endpoint ip address"?

ah, it makes sense now. they are creating additional "interface" monitoring points within whatsup, not in the cisco gear. there's nothing to do in the asa beyond permitting your whatsup server to make snmp queries to the asa.

hope this helps.

Excellent.  Thank you.  Feel a little stupid, shows what happens when you fixate on on single thought too long..
