To use this Pack, the SNMP service must be properly configured on your device.

Network flow​

The target equipment must be reachable from the Centreon Poller on the UDP/161 SNMP port.

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_netgear_sseries_snmp.pl \
--plugin=network::netgear::sseries::snmp \
--mode=cpu \
--hostname=10.0.0.1 \
--snmp-version='2c' \
--snmp-community='my-snmp-community'

The expected command output is shown below:

OK: cpu average usage: 48.83 % (5s), 40.43 % (1m), 19.85 % (5m) | 'cpu.utilization.5s.percentage'=48.83%;;;0;100 'cpu.utilization.1m.percentage'=40.43%;;;0;100 'cpu.utilization.5m.percentage'=19.85%;;;0;100

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

/usr/lib/centreon/plugins/centreon_netgear_sseries_snmp.pl \
--plugin=network::netgear::sseries::snmp \
--mode=cpu \
--help

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

/usr/lib/centreon/plugins/centreon_netgear_sseries_snmp.pl \
--plugin=network::netgear::sseries::snmp \
--list-mode
