Introduction

Skyline quickly and efficiently monitors your Security Gateways with industry-standard software and protocols (OpenTelemetry, Prometheus, and Grafana).

Skyline provides an OpenTelemetry CPView Agent service. The OpenTelemetry CPView Agent runs on a Security GatewayClosed Dedicated Check Point server that runs Check Point software to inspect traffic and enforce Security Policies for connected network resources. to collect and exports health metrics from CPView to an external location.

This document contains a comprehensive list of all the data available from Skyline - exported from relevant devices using OpenTelemetry protocols.

See sk178566 for more information about Skyline.

For each metric, a label representing the context is attached automatically (for example, VS ID in VSXClosed Virtual System Extension. Check Point virtual networking solution, hosted on a computer or cluster with virtual abstractions of Check Point Security Gateways and other network devices. These Virtual Devices provide the same functionality as their physical counterparts.).

To query, filter, and further analyze the trace data, each metric has a <key>:<value> pair known as "Attributes" or "Labels". This pair represent the metadata of the metric.

Metric data may behave differently with time:

Behavior

Description

Constant

Data is not expected to change in the near future

Slow-Changing

Data might change in very slow intervals (for example, one time during a month)

Fast-Changing

Data is constantly changing

Accumulated

Data is accumulated based on a previous value until a restart
