Monitoring Server Components

Badge +3



I am trying to monitor HP server components using template "HW-HP-Server-Hardware-Global-SNMP" with custom macros,

EXTRAOPTIONS = --verbose

It displays below result notifying as "checking" but not showing actual results.

Can someone please guide me on what I'm missing in this configuration.

Hi @mmnawab can you try to run following command with your SNMP information:

snmpwalk -v 2c -c <snmp_community> <hp_server_ip> .

@Laurent Thanks for the response.

This info I received after running the command

SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises. = No Such Object available on this agent at this OID

Your HP server is an HP Proliant or another one?

Hum should work, the SNMP community have enough rights to read all OIDs?

What is the meaning of this and what needs to be done to resolve it ?


. = undef

. = undef

. = undef

It means that the plugin try to get values associated to this OIDs but the SNMP of the equipment says that their is no associated value (undef).

So maybe you are not in the latest version of the firmware on your equipment or this king of equipment can’t be monitored using default HP Proliant OIDs.

you can check component with ILO interface.

/usr/lib/centreon/plugins// --plugin=hardware::server::hp::ilo::xmlapi::plugin --mode=hardware --hostname='***' --username='supervisionilo' --password='***'  --component='.*' --verbose
