Prerequisites​

Please find all the prerequisites needed for Centreon to get information from Azure on the dedicated page.

Setup​

  1. Install the plugin package on every Centreon poller expected to monitor Azure Classic Storage resources:
yum install centreon-plugin-Cloud-Azure-ClassicStorage-StorageAccount-Api
  1. On the Centreon web interface, on page Configuration > Plugin Packs, install the Azure Classic Storage Centreon Plugin Pack.

Configuration​

Host​

  • Log into Centreon and add a new host through Configuration > Hosts.
  • In the IP Address/DNS field, set the following IP address: 127.0.0.1.
  • Aplly the Cloud-Azure-ClassicStorage-StorageAccount-Account-custom template to the host.
  • Once the template is applied, fill in the corresponding macros. Some macros are mandatory. These mandatory macros differ depending on the custom mode used.

Two methods can be used to set the macros:

  • Full ID of the Resource (/subscriptions/<subscription_id>/resourceGroups/<resourcegroup_id>/providers/XXXXX/XXXXX/<resource_name>) in AZURERESOURCE

  • Resource name in the AZURERESOURCE macro, and resource group name in the AZURERESOURCEGROUP macro.

MandatoryMacroDescription
XAZUREAPICUSTOMMODECustom mode api
XAZURECLIENTIDClient ID
XAZURECLIENTSECRETClient secret
XAZURERESOURCEID or name of the Azure Classic Storage resource
AZURERESOURCEGROUPResource group name if resource name is used
XAZURESUBSCRIPTIONSubscription ID
XAZURETENANTTenant ID

How to check in the CLI that the configuration is OK and what are the main options for?​

Once the plugin is installed, log into your Centreon poller's CLI using the centreon-engine user account (su - centreon-engine) and test the plugin by running the following command:

/usr/lib/centreon/plugins//centreon_azure_classicstorage_storageaccount_api.pl \
--plugin=cloud::azure::classicstorage::storageaccount::plugin \
--mode=transactions-latency \
--custommode='api' \
--resource='/subscriptions/xxx/resourceGroups/rgdev/providers/Microsoft.ClassicStorage/storageAccounts/storageaccountdev' \
--resource-group='' \
--subscription='xxx' \
--tenant='xxx' \
--client-id='xxx' \
--client-secret='xxx' \
--proxyurl='' \
--storage-type='' \
--timeframe='' \
--interval='' \
--aggregation='' \
--warning-successserverlatency-average='' \
--critical-successserverlatency-average='' \
--warning-successe2elatency-average='' \
--critical-successe2elatency-average='' \
--use-new-perfdata

The expected command output is shown below:

OK: Resource 'storageaccountdev' (Account) average SuccessServerLatency: 10.00 ms, SuccessE2ELatency: 10.17 ms | 'successserverlatency_average'=10.00ms;;;0; 'successe2elatency_average'=10.17ms;;;0;

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

/usr/lib/centreon/plugins//centreon_azure_classicstorage_storageaccount_api.pl \
--plugin=cloud::azure::classicstorage::storageaccount::plugin \
--mode=transactions-latency \
--help

All available modes can be displayed by adding the --list-mode parameter to the command:

/usr/lib/centreon/plugins//centreon_azure_classicstorage_storageaccount_api.pl \
--plugin=cloud::azure::classicstorage::storageaccount::plugin \
--list-mode
