Prerequisites​

To monitor your Supermicro, the SuperDoctor agent must be configured (eg: https://www.supermicro.com/en/solutions/management-software/superdoctor) The Poller should be able to perform SNMP requests toward the Supermicro device over SNMP UDP/161 port.

Setup​

  1. Install the Centreon Plugin on every Poller:
yum install centreon-plugin-Hardware-Servers-Supermicro-Superdoctor-Snmp
  1. On the Centreon Web interface in Configuration > Plugin packs > Manager, install the Supermicro SuperDoctor SNMP Pack

Host configuration​

  • Add a new Host and fill the IP Address/FQDN, SNMP Version and SNMP Community fields according to the device's configuration
  • Apply the HW-Server-Supermicro-Superdoctor-SNMP-custom Host Template

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

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_supermicro_superdoctor_snmp.pl
--plugin=hardware::server::supermicro::superdoctor::snmp::plugin
--mode=hardware
--hostname=10.30.2.114
--snmp-version='2c'
--snmp-community='supermicro_ro'
--verbose

The command above monitors Supermicro hardware (--plugin=hardware::server::supermicro::superdoctor::snmp::plugin --mode=hardware) 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='supermicro_ro').

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_supermicro_superdoctor_snmp.pl
--plugin=hardware::server::supermicro::superdoctor::snmp::plugin
--mode=hardware
--help
