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/centreon_barracuda_bma_snmp.pl \
--plugin=network::barracuda::bma::snmp::plugin \
--mode=load \
--hostname='10.0.0.1' \
--snmp-version='2c' \
--snmp-community='my-snmp-community' \
--warning-cpu-load='' \
--critical-cpu-load='' \
--verbose

The expected command output is shown below:

OK: system cpu load: 2.00% | 'system.cpu.load.percentage'=2.00%;;;0;100

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