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 CLI using the centreon-engine user account and test the Plugin by running the following command:

/usr/lib/centreon/plugins/ \
--plugin=hardware::devices::hikvision::nvr::snmp::plugin \
--mode=memory \
--hostname='' \
--snmp-version='2c' \
--snmp-community='my-snmp-community' \
--warning-usage-prct='' \
--critical-usage-prct='' \

The expected command output is shown below:

OK: Memory total: 500.00 MB used: 25.00 MB (5.00%) free: 475.00 MB (95.00%) | 'memory.usage.bytes'=26214400B;;;0;524288000 ''=498073600B;;;0;524288000 'memory.usage.percentage'=5.00%;;;0;100

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

/usr/lib/centreon/plugins/ \
--plugin=hardware::devices::hikvision::nvr::snmp::plugin \

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