When looking in the centreon/centreon-plugins Github repository I can’t see the same files which I have in the /usr/lib/centreon/plugins/ directory after an installation from the RPM packages.
My knowledge of Perl is very limited, but I suppose there is some kind of install process in order to be able to use the plugins. I looked at the README but didn’t find any. I don’t think that just cloning the repository would permit me to use the plugins, but maybe I’m wrong? If so, how to use them?
I’d like to be able to do that in order to test the very last version of the plugins without having to wait for release and packaging.
I suppose I’d have to do so if I’d like to participate in the development of the plugins. The README, in the Basic Usage section, shows an example with running the “centreon_plugins.pl” script. Would it work just after I cloned the repository? I didn’t try because the README also tells : “I have finished the install section and I want to monitor a Linux in SNMP”, so what is this “Install section”?
Moreover, running the plugins like this (if possible), would not be suitable to test the plugins directly in Centreon I guess.
It may be obvious for a experienced Perl developer but it isn’t to me.
