Kasperky Security Center configuration

To use this pack, the SNMP service must be properly configured on your Kaspersky Security Center. Kaspersky provides an official documentation to achieve this:

Network flow

The Kaspersky Security Center must be reachable from the Centreon Poller on the UDP/161 SNMP port.


  1. Install the Centreon Kaspersky package on every Centreon poller expected to monitor a Kaspersky Security Center:
yum install centreon-plugin-Applications-Antivirus-Kaspersky-Snmp
  1. On the centreon Web interface, install the Kaspersky Centreon Monitoring Connector on the Configuration > Monitoring Connector Manager page

Host configuration

  • Log into Centreon and add a new Host through "Configuration > Hosts".
  • Fill the "Name", "Alias" & "IP Address / DNS" fields according to your Kaspersky Security Center settings
  • Select the App-Antivirus-Kaspersky-SNMP-custom template to apply to the Host.

When using SNMP v3, use the SNMPEXTRAOPTIONS Macro to add specific authentication parameters More information in the Troubleshooting SNMP section.

How do I run my plugin through the CLI and what do the main parameters stand for?

Once you've installed the plugin, you can test it logging with centreon-engine user:

/usr/lib/centreon/plugins// \
--plugin=apps::antivirus::kaspersky::snmp::plugin --mode=protection \
--hostname= --snmp-version='2c' --snmp-community='kaseprsky_ro' \
--warning-status='%{status} =~ /Warning/i' --critical-status='%{status} =~ /Critical/i'
--warning-no-antivirus='0' --critical-no-antivirus='' --warning-no-real-time='0' --critical-no-real-time='' \
--warning-not-acceptable-level='0' --critical-not-acceptable-level='' \
--warning-not-cured-objects='0' --critical-not-cured-objects='' \
--warning-too-many-threats='0' --critical-too-many-threats='' \
--warning-too-many-threats='0' --critical-too-many-threats='' \

Expected command output is shown below:

WARNING: 2 host(s) without running antivirus - 1 hosts(s) without running real time protection - 8 host(s) with not cured objects - 5 host(s) with too many threats | 'protection.hosts.antivirus.notrunning.count'=2;0:0;;0; 'protection.hosts.realtime.notrunning.count'=1;0:0;;0; 'protection.hosts.realtime.unacceptable.level.count'=0;0:0;;0; 'protection.hosts.uncured.objects.count'=8;0:0;;0; 'protection.hosts.toomanythreats.count'=5;0:0;;0;

In this example, the Plugin gets protection status of the hosts managed by the Kaspersky Antivirus Manager (--plugin=apps::antivirus::kaspersky::snmp::plugin--mode=protection) by requesting the Kaspersky Security Center using the SNMP protocol at (--hostname='' --snmp-version='2c' --snmp-community='kaseprsky_ro').

This command will trigger an alarm when the global protection status is not OK (--warning-status='%{status} =~ /Warning/i' --critical-status='%{status} =~ /Critical/i') or when the number of host without antivirus or an unsatisfying level of protection is above 0 (--warning-no-antivirus='0' --warning-not-acceptable-level='0').

All available options for a given mode can be displayed by adding the --help parameter to the command:

/usr/lib/centreon/plugins// \
--plugin=apps::antivirus::kaspersky::snmp::plugin \
--mode=deployment \

All Plugin modes can be listed with the following command:

/usr/lib/centreon/plugins// \
--plugin=apps::antivirus::kaspersky::snmp::plugin \

UNKNOWN: SNMP GET Request : Timeout

If you get this message, you're probably facing one of theses issues:

  • Your SNMP server isn't started or misconfigured
  • An external device is blocking your request (firewall, ...)

UNKNOWN: SNMP GET Request : Cant get a single value.

This message generally means that SNMP privileges are not wide enough for the mode/plugin to work properly.
