SNMP Configuration​

To use this pack, the SNMP service must be properly configured on your Microsens device:

Network flow​

The target server 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 Microsens G6 SNMP resources:
yum install centreon-plugin-Network-Microsens-G6-Snmp
  1. On the Centreon Web interface, install the Microsens G6 SNMP Centreon Pack on the Configuration > Monitoring Connector Manager page.



  • Log into Centreon and add a new Host through Configuration > Hosts
  • Fill the Name, Alias & IP Address / DNS fields according to your Microsens G6 SNMP server settings
  • Select the network-microsens-g6-snmp-custom template to apply to the Host

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 CLI using the centreon-engine user account and test the Plugin by running the following command:

/usr/lib/centreon/plugins/ \
--plugin=network::microsens::g6::snmp::plugin \
--mode=sfp \
--hostname='' \
--snmp-version='2c' \
--snmp-community='my-snmp-community' \
--filter-port='^(2|4)$' \
--warning-status='' \
--critical-status='' \
--warning-temperature='' \
--critical-temperature='' \
--warning-input-power='' \
--critical-input-power='' \
--warning-output-power='' \
--critical-output-power='' \

The expected command output is shown below:

OK: All sfp ports are ok | '2#port.input.power.dbm'=1.3dBm;;;; '2#port.output.power.dbm'=0.3dBm;;;; '2#port.temperature.celsius'=65.9C;;;; '4#port.input.power.dbm'=1.4dBm;;;; '4#port.output.power.dbm'=0.7dBm;;;; '4#port.temperature.celsius'=66.3C;;;;
checking sfp port '2'
status: laserDisabled
input power: 1.3 dBm, output power: 0.3 dBm
temperature: 65.90 C
checking sfp port '4'
status: laserDisabled
input power: 1.4 dBm, output power: 0.7 dBm
temperature: 66.30 C

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

/usr/lib/centreon/plugins/ \
--plugin=network::microsens::g6::snmp::plugin \
--mode=sfp \

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

/usr/lib/centreon/plugins/ \
--plugin=network::microsens::g6::snmp::plugin \
