Remember Me

The manual was very easy to follow and the amount of stuff that can be monitored is amazing

SNMP Printer Check
I'm using FAN (Nagios Core 3.4.4)


define command{
command_name check_snmp_printer
command_line $USER1$/check_snmp_printer -H $HOSTADDRESS$ -C $ARG1$ -x $ARG2 -w $ARG3$ -c $ARG4$


command[check_snmp_printer]=/usr/lib64/nagios/plugins/check_snmp_printer -H $HOSTADDRESS$ -C $ARG1$ -x $ARG2$ -w $ARG3$ -c $ARG4$


define service{
use generic-service
host_name Test-Printer
service_description Toner Supply
check_command check_snmp_printer!public!"CONSUM Toners"!20!10

When I run the command manually on the server it works fine

#./check_snmp_printer -H -C public -x "CONSUM ALL" -w 20 -c 10

Black Toner [K] Cartridge;SN1220AA80E00004A0 is at 99% - OK! Yellow Toner [Y] Cartridge;SN04156480E0000478 is at 89% - OK! Magenta Toner [M] Cartridge;SN11338080E0000479 is at 83% - OK!

Magenta Drum Cartridge is at 71% - OK! Cyan Drum Cartridge is at 72% - OK! | Black Toner [K] Cartridge;SN1220AA80E00004A0=99;20;10; Yellow Toner [Y] Cartridge;SN04156480E0000478=89;20;10; Magenta Toner [M] Cartridge;SN11338080E0000479=83;20;10; Cyan Toner [C] Cartridge;SN0F2DD980E000047A=82;20;10; Waste Toner Container=-3;20;10; Black Drum Cartridge=93;20;10; Yellow Drum Cartridge=72;20;10; Magenta Drum Cartridge=71;20;10; Cyan Drum Cartridge=72;20;10;

However it doesn't work through nagios
I get this (even when I use CONSUM TEST instead of CONSUM ALL)
UNKNOWN - OID not found! Your printer may not support checking this consumable. Use the CONSUM TEST option to determine which consumables may be monitored.

and I also got this error initially
No SNMP response from 192.168.x.x! Make sure host is up and SNMP is configured properly.
Once again works fine manually when using check_snmp_printer in a shell
