Prerequisites​

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

Setup​

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

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

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_unifi_snmp.pl \
--plugin=network::ubiquiti::unifi::snmp::plugin \
--mode=disks \
--hostname=10.30.2.114 \
--snmp-version='2c' \
--snmp-community='ubiquiti_ro' \
--filter-disk-path='^/$' \
--warning-usage-prct='90' \
--critical-usage-prct='95' \
--verbose

Expected command output is shown below:

OK: Partition '/' usage total: 46.82 GB used: 26.41 GB (56.40%) free: 20.41 GB (43.60%), Inodes used: 2 % | 'storage.partitions.count'=1;;;0; '/#storage.space.usage.bytes'=28356739072B;;;0;50273779712 '/#storage.space.free.bytes'=21917040640B;;;0;50273779712 '/#storage.space.usage.percentage'=56.40%;0:90;0:95;0;100 '/#storage.inodes.usage.percentage'=2%;;;0;100
Partition '/' usage total: 46.82 GB used: 26.41 GB (56.40%) free: 20.41 GB (43.60%), Inodes used: 2 %

The command above monitors Ubiquiti UniFi (--plugin=network::ubiquiti::unifi::snmp::plugin --mode=disks) 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 disk utilization over 90% (--warning-usage-prct='90') and a CRITICAL alarm over 95% (--critical-usage-prct='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_unifi_snmp.pl \
--plugin=network::ubiquiti::unifi::snmp::plugin \
--mode=disks \
--help
