Device Configuration

On the TMS device, enable and configure the SNMP agent in order to allow the Centreon Poller to request it.

Network flows

The Centreon Poller must be able to reach the UDP/161 SNMP port of the TMS device.


  1. Install the Centreon package on every Centreon Poller expected to monitor Timelinkmicro devices:
yum install centreon-plugin-Hardware-Devices-Timelinkmicro-Tms6001-Snmp
  1. On the Centreon Web interface, install the Timelinkmicro Tms6001 Snmp Monitoring Connector through Configuration > Monitoring Connector Manager page.

Host configuration

  • Add a new Host and apply the HW-Timelink-tms6001-SNMP-Custom Host Template
  • Fill SNMP Version and Community fields according to the device's configuration

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

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// \
--plugin=hardware::devices::timelinkmicro::tms6001::snmp \
--mode=alarms \
--hostname= \
--snmp-version='2c' \
--snmp-community='timelink_ro' \

This check monitors open alarms (--mode=alarms) on a Timelink device with IP (--hostname= using SNMP v2 and 'timelink_ro' Community string (--snmp-version='2c' --snmp-community='timelink_ro')

Use the --list-mode option to display all the modes available in the Plugin:

/usr/lib/centreon/plugins// \
--plugin=hardware::devices::timelinkmicro::tms6001::snmp \

Use the --help flag to display a dedicated manual for a given mode:

/usr/lib/centreon/plugins// \
--plugin=hardware::devices::timelinkmicro::tms6001::snmp \
--mode=cpu \

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, ...)
