Configure SNMP on your Symbol WiNG device.

Network flow​

The target device 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 Symbol WiNG resources:
yum install centreon-plugin-Network-Symbol-Wing-Snmp
  1. On the Centreon web interface, install the Symbol WiNG switch SNMP Centreon Monitoring Connector on the Configuration > Monitoring Connector Manager page.



  • Log into Centreon and add a new host through Configuration > Hosts.
  • Fill the Name, Alias and IP Address/DNS fields according to your Symbol WiNG server settings.
  • Apply the Net-Symbol-Wing-SNMP-custom template to the host.

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::symbol::wing::snmp::plugin \
--mode=systems \
--hostname='' \
--snmp-community='my-snmp-community' \
--snmp-version='2c' \
--filter-name='' \
--warning-cpu-utilization-1m='' \
--critical-cpu-utilization-1m='' \
--warning-cpu-utilization-5m='80' \
--critical-cpu-utilization-5m='90' \
--warning-cpu-utilization-15m='' \
--critical-cpu-utilization-15m='' \
--warning-memory-usage='' \
--critical-memory-usage='' \
--warning-memory-usage-free='' \
--critical-memory-usage-free='' \
--warning-memory-usage-prct='' \
--critical-memory-usage-prct='' \
--warning-devices-total='' \

The expected command output is shown below:

OK: total devices: %s %.2f %% (1m) %.2f %% (5m) %.2f %% (15m)    | ''=1;;;0; 'cpu.utilization.1m.percentage'=1%;;;0;100 'cpu.utilization.5m.percentage'=3%;80;90;0;100 'cpu.utilization.15m.percentage'=20%;;;0;100 'device.memory.usage.bytes'=8000B;;;0; ''=192B;;;0; 'device.memory.usage.percentage'=99%;;;0;100 

This command would trigger a WARNING alarm if the CPU was reported as over 80% during the last 5 minutes (--warning-cpu-utilization-5m='80') and a CRITICAL alarm if over 90% during the last 5 minutes (--critical-cpu-utilization-5m='90').

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

/usr/lib/centreon/plugins// \
--plugin=network::symbol::wing::snmp::plugin \
--mode=systems \

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::symbol::wing::snmp::plugin \
