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// \
--plugin=hardware::sensors::sensorip::snmp::plugin \
--mode=sensors \
--hostname= \
--snmp-version='2c' \
--snmp-community='my-snmp-community' \
--component='.*' \
--verbose \

The expected command output is shown below:

OK: | 

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

/usr/lib/centreon/plugins// \
--plugin=hardware::sensors::sensorip::snmp::plugin \
--mode=sensors \

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

/usr/lib/centreon/plugins// \
--plugin=hardware::sensors::sensorip::snmp::plugin \
