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 ArubaOS-CX resources:
yum install centreon-plugin-Network-Aruba-Aoscx-Snmp
  1. On the Centreon web interface, install the ArubaOS-CX SNMP Centreon Pack on the Configuration > Monitoring Connectors Manager page.



  • Log into Centreon and add a new host through Configuration > Hosts.
  • Fill the Name, Alias and IP Address / DNS fields according to your ArubaOS-CX equipment settings.
  • Apply the Net-Aruba-Aoscx-SNMP-custom template to the host.
  • Once the template is applied, fill in the corresponding macros. Some macros are mandatory.

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'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=network::aruba::aoscx::snmp::plugin \
--mode=vsf \
--hostname= \
--snmp-version='2c' \
--snmp-community='aruba_ro' \
--warning-cpu-utilization='90' \
--critical-cpu-utilization='95' \

The expected command output is shown below:

OK: vsf operational status: no_split - All stack members are ok | '1#member.cpu.utilization.percentage'=16.00%;0:90;0:95;0;100 '1#member.memory.usage.percentage'=24.00%;;;0;100 '2#member.cpu.utilization.percentage'=4.00%;0:90;0:95;0;100 '2#member.memory.usage.percentage'=14.00%;;;0;100 '3#member.cpu.utilization.percentage'=4.00%;0:90;0:95;0;100 '3#member.memory.usage.percentage'=8.00%;;;0;100 '4#member.cpu.utilization.percentage'=4.00%;0:90;0:95;0;100 '4#member.memory.usage.percentage'=8.00%;;;0;100

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

/usr/lib/centreon/plugins/ \
--plugin=network::aruba::aoscx::snmp::plugin \
--mode=vsf \

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

/usr/lib/centreon/plugins/ \
--plugin=network::aruba::aoscx::snmp::plugin \
