**If you are interested in such a checks pack and if you are monitoring some Windows hosts with SNMP, please contact us (IRC or open an issue in this project)**


Installation
------------

The installation of this checks pack will copy some configuration files in the Alignak default configuration directory (eg. */usr/local/etc/alignak*). The copied files are located in the default sub-directory used for the packs (eg. *arbiter/packs*).

From PyPI
~~~~~~~~~
To install the package from PyPI:
::

sudo pip install alignak-checks-snmp


From source files
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
To install the package from the source files:
::

git clone https://github.com/Alignak-monitoring-contrib/alignak-checks-snmp
cd alignak-checks-snmp
sudo pip install .

**Note:** *using `sudo python setup.py install` will not correctly manage the package configuration files! The recommended way is really to use `pip`;)*

Documentation
-------------

This checks pack is using the some PERL plugins that are shipped with the checks pack, but some PERL dependencies are necessary.


Install PERL dependencies for PERL plugins
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

On some Linux distros, you can::

sudo apt-get install libsnmp-perl libnet-snmp-perl

Or you can use the PERL *cpan* utility::

cpan install Net::SNMP


Configuration
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Edit the */usr/local/etc/alignak/arbiter/packs/snmp/resources.cfg* file and configure the SNMP community.
::

#-- Default SNMP community
$SNMPCOMMUNITYREAD$=public


Prepare host
~~~~~~~~~~~~
Some operations are necessary on the monitored hosts if SNMP remote access is not yet activated.
::

# Install local SNMP agent
su -
apt-get update
apt-get install snmpd

# Allow SNMP get - this configuration is intended for tests puuposes
# You should set up a more secure configuration and not allow everyone to see everything :)
vi /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf
=>
# Listen for connections from the local system only
#agentAddress udp:127.0.0.1:161
# Listen for connections on all interfaces (both IPv4 *and* IPv6)
agentAddress udp:161,udp6:[::1]:161
=>
# rocommunity public default -V systemonly
rocommunity public
# Restart SNMP agent
/etc/init.d/snmpd restart

Test remote access with the plugins files:
::

$ /usr/local/var/libexec/alignak/check_snmp_mem.pl -H 127.0.0.1 -C public -w 80,80 -c 90,95
Ram : 71%, Swap : 58% : ; OK


Alignak configuration
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

To define the SNMP community to be used per default, edit the *resources.cfg* file and change the default value.
::
$SNMPCOMMUNITYREAD$=public


You simply have to tag the concerned hosts with the template `linux-snmp`.
::

define host{
use linux-snmp
host_name host_snmp
address 127.0.0.1
}


The main `linux-snmp` template declares macros used to configure the launched checks. The default values of these macros listed hereunder can be overriden in each host configuration.
::

_SNMPCOMMUNITY $SNMPCOMMUNITYREAD$
_SNMP_MSG_MAX_SIZE 65535

_LOAD_WARN 2,2,2
_LOAD_CRIT 3,3,3
_STORAGE_WARN 90
_STORAGE_CRIT 95
_CPU_WARN 80
_CPU_CRIT 90
_MEMORY_WARN 80,80
_MEMORY_CRIT 95,95
_NET_IFACES eth\d+|em\d+
_NET_WARN 90,90,0,0,0,0
_NET_CRIT 0,0,0,0,0,0


To set a specific value for an host, declare the same macro in the host definition file.
::

define host{
use linux-snmp
host_name host_snmp
address 127.0.0.1

# Specific values for this host
# Change warning and critical alerts level for memory
# Same for CPU, ALL_CPU, DISK, LOAD, NET, ...
_LOAD_WARN 3,3,3
_LOAD_CRIT 5,5,5
}
