It is possible to filter on the name of a tag using a REGEXP of the form [--filter-tag-name='Fuel'].

Prerequisites​

To control your HMS Ewon, the SNMP must be configured.

Setup​

  1. Install the Centreon Plugin on every Poller:
yum install centreon-plugin-Hardware-Devices-Hms-Ewon-Snmp
  1. On the Centreon Web interface in "Configuration > Plugin packs > Manager", install the HMS Ewon SNMP Plugin-Pack

Host configuration​

  • Add a new Host and apply the HW-Device-Hms-Ewon-SNMP-custom Host Template
  • Fill the SNMP Version and Community fields according to the device's configuration

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

FAQ​

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_hms_ewon_snmp.pl \
--plugin=hardware::devices::hms::ewon::snmp::plugin \
--mode=tags \
--hostname=10.30.2.114 \
--snmp-version='2c' \
--snmp-community='ewon_ro' \
--filter-tag-name=Partiel \
--tag-threshold-warning='40000' \
--tag-threshold-critical='50000' \
--verbose

Expected command output is shown below:

CRITICAL: Tag 'Compt_H_Partiel' value: 441985 | 'Compt_H_Partiel#tag.value.count'=441985;0:40000;0:50000;; 'Compt_Ea_Partiel#tag.value.count'=20507;0:40000;0:50000;; 'Compt_Er_Partiel#tag.value.count'=1040;0:40000;0:50000;;
Tag 'Compt_H_Partiel' status: none, value: 441985
Tag 'Compt_Ea_Partiel' status: none, value: 20507
Tag 'Compt_Er_Partiel' status: none, value: 1040

The command above monitors HMS Ewon tags (--plugin=hardware::devices::hms::ewon::snmp::plugin --mode=tags) 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='ewon_ro').

This command would trigger a WARNING alarm if tags value over 40000 (--tag-threshold-warning='40000') and a CRITICAL alarm over 50000 (--tag-threshold-critical='50000').

For each Plugin mode, 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_hms_ewon_snmp.pl \
--plugin=hardware::devices::hms::ewon::snmp::plugin \
--mode=tags \
--help

UNKNOWN: SNMP GET Request : Timeout​

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

  • The SNMP agent of the device isn't started or is misconfigured
  • An external device is blocking the request (firewall, ...)

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

This error message often refers to the following issues:

  • The HMS Ewon device doesn't support the MIB used by the plugin
  • The targeted SNMP OID cannot be fetched because of insufficient privileges on the device. SNMP Agent must be capable of accessing to the enterprise branch HMS Ewon: .1.3.6.1.4.1.8284.2.1
