Monitoring with SNMP

Post by fiberkill » 2017/03/14 07:35:56


i need to monitor a view servers.
The informations i need are realy basic (such as CPU load, temperatur, NIC status, power status and so on).
I think i can handle this with SNMP.
I don't want to run an agent on my servers. I would like to handle this with a shell script.
My problem is, i have no experience with SNMP.
Does anybody have a script or somthing else like this where i can learn from?

cheers fk

You'll have a job monitoring via snmp without running the snmpd daemon on your machines.

And rather than reinvent the wheel, look at the products that already do this like cacti, librenms etc.
