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 \
