Collected Metrics​

Prerequisites​

To monitor your Wallix Bastion, the SNMP must be configured. The Poller should be able to perform SNMP requests toward the Lenovo device over SNMP UDP/161 port.

Setup​

  1. Install the Centreon Plugin on every Poller:
yum install centreon-plugin-Applications-Wallix-Bastion-Snmp
  1. On the Centreon Web interface in Configuration > Plugin packs > Manager, install the Wallix Bastion SNMP Pack

Host configuration​

  • Add a new Host and fill the IP Address/FQDN, SNMP Version and SNMP Community fields according to the application's configuration
  • Apply the App-Wallix-Bastion-SNMP-custom Host Template

When using SNMP v3, use the SNMPEXTRAOPTIONS Macro to add specific authentication parameters

How to test the Plugin and what are the main options for?​

Once the plugin installed, log into your Centreon Poller CLI using the centreon-engine user account and test the Plugin by running the following command:

/usr/lib/centreon/plugins/centreon_wallix_bastion_snmp.pl \
--plugin=apps::wallix::bastion::snmp::plugin \
--mode=system \
--hostname=10.30.2.114 \
--snmp-version='2c' \
--snmp-community='wallix_ro' \
--verbose

Expected command output is shown below:

OK: system is ok | 'sessions.total.count'=13;;;0; 'sessions.primary.count'=7;;;0; 'sessions.secondary.count'=6;;;0; 'sessions.ghost.count'=0;;;0; 'requests.pending.count'=2;;;0;
checking system
services status: running
sessions total: 13 primary: 7 secondary: 6 ghost: 0
requests pending: 2

The command above monitors Wallix Bastion system (--plugin=apps::wallix::bastion::snmp::plugin --mode=system) identified by the IP address 10.30.2.114 (--hostname=10.30.2.114). As the Plugin is using the SNMP protocol to request the device, the related community and version are specified (--snmp-version='2c' --snmp-community='wallix_ro').

All the options as well as all the available thresholds can be displayed by adding the --help parameter to the command:

/usr/lib/centreon/plugins/centreon_wallix_bastion_snmp.pl \
--plugin=apps::wallix::bastion::snmp::plugin \
--mode=system \
--help
