  • snmptrap, I am confused

    Hi.
    I have never used snmptraps, an I wonder if it could be usefull for me.

    I need to know if the disk of my serveurs arrive to 90% of space used, and olso the memory use. But I do not follow how to do it. Waht do I have to do in the sender(server) and waht in the receiver(Centreon).

    Thanks

      I would advise against the traps solution in this case. try to setup direct plugins checks instead, which requires a lot less configuration on each of the monitored and monitoring servers.

      have you tried achieving what you need by using a plugin like check_centreon_snmp_storage_detailled or such ?

      Just make sure that snmp is running on the distant servers with the right community and you should be good to go !

        I learned that if I check servers parameter via snmptraps nagios would not check resources every 5 m, for exemple, and it would content with just listening in a port waiting for snmp messages & sending alerts just when necessary. Am I grong?

        I want to try this way. I have already done disk & process check via snmp queries already. SO my next step is to go with snmptraps even if it is harder to configure.
        Thanks.

          try searching the wiki or forum for the centreon side, as for the server side there is plenty of tutorials on the web. Sorry I can't be of more help as I didn't setup this solution myself.

            Good Morning.
            Wath configuration do I have to do in the client side to send a trap to nagios -centreon for instance disk space?

            Thanks
