SNMP Configuration

To use this pack, the SNMP service must be properly configured on your device.

Network flow

The target equipment must be reachable from the Centreon Poller on the UDP/161 SNMP port.


  1. Install the Centreon package on every Centreon poller expected to monitor Dell OME–Modular SNMP resources:
yum install centreon-plugin-Hardware-Servers-Dell-Omem-Snmp
  1. On the Centreon Web interface, install the Dell OME–Modular SNMP Centreon Pack on the Configuration > Monitoring Connector Manager page.



  • Log into Centreon and add a new Host through Configuration > Hosts
  • Fill the Name, Alias & IP Address / DNS fields according to your Dell OME–Modular SNMP server settings
  • Select the HW-Server-Dell-OMEM-SNMP-custom template to apply to the Host

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

SNMPEXTRAOPTIONS(Default: 'Configure your own SNMPv3 credentials combo')

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::server::dell::omem::snmp::plugin \
--mode=hardware \
--hostname='' \
--snmp-version='2c' \
--snmp-community='my-snmp-community' \

The expected command output is shown below:

OK: All 15 components are ok [1/1 chassis, 7/7 health, 6/6 psus, 1/1 temperatures]. | '1#hardware.chassis.power.watt'=2227W;;;; 'chassis#hardware.temperature.celsius'=21C;;;; 'hardware.chassis.count'=1;;;; ''=7;;;; 'hardware.psu.count'=6;;;; 'hardware.temperature.count'=1;;;;
