Athonet ePC SNMP

Plugin-Pack Assets​

Monitored Objects​

The Plugin-Pack Athonet ePC SNMP collects metrics for:

  • aggregate
  • apns
  • interfaces (diameter, GA, GTPC, LTE)
  • license
  • lte

This table describes which metrics can be collected according to roles.

Collected Metrics​

Metric nameDescriptionUnit
aggregate.traffic.in.bytespersecondAggregate incoming trafficB/s
aggregate.traffic.out.bytespersecond Aggregate outgoing trafficB/s
hss.users.roaming.connected.countNumber of roaming users connected
hss.requests.authentication.countNumber of authentication requests
hss.location.updates.countNumber of location updates

Prerequisites​

To control your Athonet ePC equipments, the SNMP must be configured.

Setup​

  1. Install the Centreon Plugin on every Poller:
yum install centreon-plugin-Network-Athonet-Epc-Snmp
  1. On the Centreon Web interface in "Configuration > Plugin packs > Manager", install the Athonet ePC SNMP Plugin-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 Net-Athonet-Epc-SNMP-Custom Host Template

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

FAQ​

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_athonet_epc_snmp.pl \
--plugin=network::athonet::epc::snmp::plugin \
--mode=lte \
--hostname=10.30.2.114 \
--snmp-version='2c' \
--snmp-community='athonet_ro' \
--warning-users-connected='100' \
--critical-users-connected='200' \
--verbose

Expected command output is shown below:

OK: Lte traffic in: 0 B/s, traffic out: 0 B/s - connected users: 0, idle users: 0, active sessions: 0 - attach requests total: 0 success: 0 (100.00%) - pdn context activation requests total: 0 success: 0 (100.00%) - ue context release requests: 0, ue context release with radio lost requests: 0 - pdn context requests reject insufficent resources: 0, missing or unknown apn: 0, not subscribed: 0 | 'lte.traffic.in.bytespersecond'=0B/s;;;0; 'lte.traffic.out.bytespersecond'=0B/s;;;0; 'lte.users.connected.count'=0;0:100;0:200;0; 'lte.users.idle.count'=0;;;0; 'lte.sessions.active.count'=0;;;0; 'lte.requests.attach.success.count'=0;;;0;0 'lte.requests.attach.success.percentage'=100%;;;0;100 'lte.requests.pdn_context.activations.success.count'=0;;;0;0 'lte.requests.pdn_context.activations.success.percentage'=100%;;;0;100 'lte.requests.ue_context_release.total.count'=0;;;0; 'lte.requests.ue_context_release.radio_lost.count'=0;;;0; 'lte.requests.pdn_context.reject.insufficent_resources.count'=0;;;0; 'lte.requests.pdn_context.reject.no_apn.count'=0;;;0; 'lte.requests.pdn_context.reject.not_subscribed.count'=0;;;0;

traffic in: 0 B/s, traffic out: 0 B/s

The command above monitors Athonet ePC LTE statistics (--plugin=network::athonet::epc::snmp::plugin --mode=lte) 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='athonet_ro').

This command would trigger a WARNING alarm if there are more than 100 connected users (--warning-users-connected='100') and a CRITICAL alarm for more than 200 (--critical-users-connected='200').

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_athonet_epc_snmp.pl \
--plugin=network::athonet::epc::snmp::plugin \
--mode=lte \
--help

UNKNOWN: SNMP GET Request : Timeout​

If you get this message, you're probably facing one of theses issues:

  • The SNMP agent of the device isn't started or is misconfigured
  • An external device is blocking the request (firewall, ...)

UNKNOWN: SNMP GET Request : Cant get a single value.​

This error message often refers to the following issues:

  • The agent doesn't support the MIB used by the plugin
  • The targeted SNMP OID cannot be fetched because of insufficient privileges on the device. SNMP Agent must be capable of accessing to the enterprise branch: .1.3.6.1.4.1.35805.10
