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::viptela::snmp::plugin \
--mode=cpu \
--hostname='' \
--snmp-version='2c' \
--snmp-community='my-snmp-community' \
--warning-cpu-utilization='' \
--critical-cpu-utilization='' \

The expected command output is shown below:

OK: Cpu utilization: 95.00% | 'cpu.utilization.percentage'=95%;;;0;100

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

/usr/lib/centreon/plugins/ \
--plugin=network::viptela::snmp::plugin \
--mode=cpu \

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::viptela::snmp::plugin \
