Ubiquiti Edge SNMP

Pack Assets​

Monitored Objects​

The Plugin-Pack Ubiquiti Edge SNMP collects metrics for:

  • Cpu
  • Hardware
  • Interfaces
  • Memory

Discovery rules​

Rule nameDescription
Net-Ubiquiti-Edge-SNMP-Interface-NameDiscover network interfaces and monitor bandwidth utilization

Collected Metrics​

Metric nameDescriptionUnit
cpu.utilization.5s.percentageCPU utilization during last 5 seconds.%
cpu.utilization.1m.percentageCPU utilization during last minute.%
cpu.utilization.5m.percentageCPU utilization during last 5 minutes.%

Prerequisites​

To monitor your Ubiquiti Edge, the SNMP must be configured. The Poller should be able to perform SNMP requests toward the Lenovo device over SNMP UDP/161 port.

Setup​

  1. Install the Centreon Plugin on every Poller:
yum install centreon-plugin-Network-Ubiquiti-Edge-Snmp
  1. On the Centreon Web interface in Configuration > Plugin packs > Manager, install the Ubiquiti Edge SNMP Pack

Host configuration​

  • Add a new Host and fill the IP Address/FQDN, SNMP Version and SNMP Community fields according to the device's configuration
  • Apply the Net-Ubiquiti-Edge-SNMP-Custom Host Template

When using SNMP v3, use the SNMPEXTRAOPTIONS Macro to add specific authentication parameters

FAQ​

How to test the Plugin and what are the main options for?​

Once the plugin 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/centreon_ubiquiti_edge__snmp.pl \
--plugin=network::ubiquiti::edge::snmp::plugin \
--mode=cpu \
--hostname=10.30.2.114 \
--snmp-version='2c' \
--snmp-community='ubiquiti_ro' \
--warning-1m='80' \
--critical-1m='90' \
--verbose

Expected command output is shown below:

OK: CPU 53.59 % (5sec), 38.13 % (1m), 21.37 % (5min) | 'cpu.utilization.5s.percentage'=53.59%;;;0;100 'cpu.utilization.1m.percentage'=38.13%;0:80;0:90;0;100 'cpu.utilization.5m.percentage'=21.37%;;;0;100

The command above monitors Ubiquiti Edge (--plugin=network::ubiquiti::edge::snmp::plugin --mode=load) identified by the IP address 10.30.2.114 (--hostname=10.30.2.114). As the Plugin is using the SNMP protocol to request the device, the related community and version are specified (--snmp-version='2c' --snmp-community='ubiquiti_ro').

This command would trigger a WARNING alarm if cpu utilization over 90% on the last minute (--warning-1m='90') and a CRITICAL alarm over 95% on the last minute (--critical-1m='95').

All the options as well as all the available thresholds can be displayed by adding the --help parameter to the command:

/usr/lib/centreon/plugins/centreon_ubiquiti_edge_snmp.pl \
--plugin=network::ubiquiti::edge::snmp::plugin \
--mode=cpu \
--help
