Basic Usage

We'll use a basic example to show you how to monitor a system. I have finished the install section and i want to monitor a Linux in SNMP. First, i need to find the plugin to use in the list:

$ perl centreon_plugins.pl --list-plugin | grep -i linux | grep 'PLUGIN'
PLUGIN: os::linux::local::plugin
PLUGIN: os::linux::snmp::plugin

It seems that 'os::linux::snmp::plugin' is the good one. So i verify with the option --help to be sure:

$ perl centreon_plugins.pl --plugin=os::linux::snmp::plugin --help
...
Plugin Description:
  Check Linux operating systems in SNMP.

It's exactly what i need. Now i'll add the option --list-mode to know what can i do with it:

$ perl centreon_plugins.pl --plugin=os::linux::snmp::plugin --list-mode
...
Modes Available:
 processcount
 time
 list-storages
 disk-usage
 diskio
 uptime
 swap
 cpu-detailed
 load
 traffic
 cpu
 inodes
 list-diskspath
 list-interfaces
 packet-errors
 memory
 tcpcon
 storage

I would like to test the 'load' mode:

$ perl centreon_plugins.pl --plugin=os::linux::snmp::plugin --mode=load
UNKNOWN: Missing parameter --hostname.

It's not working because some options are missing. I can have a description of the mode and options with the option --help:

$ perl centreon_plugins.pl --plugin=os::linux::snmp::plugin --mode=load --help

Eventually, i have to configure some SNMP options:

$ perl centreon_plugins.pl --plugin=os::linux::snmp::plugin --mode=load --hostname=127.0.0.1 --snmp-version=2c --snmp-community=public
OK: Load average: 0.00, 0.00, 0.00 | 'load1'=0.00;;;0; 'load5'=0.00;;;0; 'load15'=0.00;;;0;

I can set threshold with options --warning and --critical:

$ perl centreon_plugins.pl --plugin=os::linux::snmp::plugin --mode=load --hostname=127.0.0.1 --snmp-version=2c --snmp-community=public --warning=1,2,3 --critical=2,3,4
OK: Load average: 0.00, 0.00, 0.00 | 'load1'=0.00;0:1;0:2;0; 'load5'=0.00;0:2;0:3;0; 'load15'=0.00;0:3;0:4;0;
