The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) Interface collector is used to allow the Linux agent to monitor the performance of remote SNMP-enabled devices like routers and switches. The collector can gather data from as many devices as necessary by adding additional configuration sections under the [devices] header; see the example below for details.
- Navigate to the collectors folder.Note The default location is /opt/netuitive-agent/conf/collectors.
- Open the SNMPInterfaceCollector.conf file.Note This configuration file will only be available in agent versions 0.3.1 or later. Otherwise, you will have to create a configuration file with the same name.
- Change the enabled setting to True.
- Update the other settings as necessary, or add additional devices using the defaults as a guide.
- Save the configuration file, and restart the Linux Agent.
Additional Configuration Options
|enabled||False||Enable collecting SNMP metrics.|
|path||interface||The file path to the SNMP Interface.|
|interval||60||How often the collector collects metrics (in seconds).
Note The 60-second default may be taxing on your hardware. You may want to increase the collection interval to 120 seconds.
|retries||3||Number of times the collector will retry before stopping.|
|timeout||5||Seconds before the SNMP connection will automatically timeout.|
|byte_unit||Default numeric output(s).|
|measure_collector_time||Measure the collector's run time in milliseconds.|
|metrics_blacklist||Regex list to match metrics to block. Mutually exclusive with metrics_whitelist option.|
|metrics_whitelist||Regex list to match metrics to transmit. Mutually exclusive with metrics_blacklist option.|
