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//centreon_huawei_snmp.pl \
--plugin=network::huawei::snmp::plugin \
--mode=uptime \
--hostname=10.0.0.1 \
--snmp-version='2c' \
--snmp-community='my-snmp-community' \
--maxrepetitions=20 \
--warning-uptime='' \
--critical-uptime='' \
--check-overload\
--use-new-perfdata

The expected command output is shown below:

OK: System uptime is: 137d 20h 37m 57s | 'uptime'=11911077s;;;0;

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

/usr/lib/centreon/plugins//centreon_huawei_snmp.pl \
--plugin=network::huawei::snmp::plugin \
--mode=uptime \
--help

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

/usr/lib/centreon/plugins//centreon_huawei_snmp.pl \
--plugin=network::huawei::snmp::plugin \
--list-mode
