To control your Dell OS10 equipment, the SNMP v2 must be configured. For more information, please refer to the official user documentation :


  1. Install the Centreon Plugin on every Poller monitoring Dell OS10 resources:
yum install centreon-plugin-Network-Dell-Os10-Snmp.noarch
  1. On the Centreon Web interface in Configuration > Monitoring Connector Manager, install the Dell OS10 SNMP Monitoring Connector

Host configuration​

  • Add a new Host and apply the Net-Dell-Os10-SNMP-custom Host Template
  • Fill the SNMP Version and Community fields according to the device's configuration

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

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/ \
--plugin=network::dell::os10::snmp::plugin \
--mode=cpu \
--hostname= \
--snmp-version='2c' \
--snmp-community='dell_os10_ro' \
--warning-average='60' \
--critical-average='75' \

Expected command output is shown below:

OK: CPU(s) average usage is 15.29 % - CPU '0' usage : 15.29 % 
| 'total_cpu_avg'=15.29%;0:60;0:75;0;100 'cpu'=15.29%;;;0;100

The command above monitors a Dell OS10 cpu usage (--plugin=network::dell::os10::snmp::plugin --mode=cpu) identified

by the IP address (--hostname= As the Plugin is using the SNMP protocol to request the device, the related community and version are specified (--snmp-version='2c' --snmp-community='dell_os10_ro').

This command would trigger a WARNING alarm if the CPU average used to raise over 60% of the CPU capacity (--warning-average='60') and a CRITICAL alarm over 75% (--critical-average='75').

For each Plugin mode, all the options as well as all the available thresholds can be displayed by adding the --help parameter to the command:

--plugin=network::dell::os10::snmp::plugin \
--mode=cpu \

UNKNOWN: SNMP GET Request : Timeout​

If you get this message, you're probably facing one of these 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 Dell device 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 Dell:
