This plugin is for monitoring the status of a Network interface using SNMP. It will check if the interface is up, down or administratively down and generate an alert based on that.
This plugin is for monitoring the status of a Network interface using SNMP.

It will check if the interface is up, down or administratively down and generate an alert based on that.

Here are the instructions to update the plugin.

Download the check_snmp_interface_status.zip attached to the ticket and upload it to the system you want to install the plugin on.

The server may need to have development packages installed in the server.

For Centos / RHEL, these need to be installed.
yum install net-snmp-devel
yum install openssl-devel

For Ubuntu / Debian, these need to be installed.
apt-get install libssl-dev
apt-get install libsnmp-dev
apt-get install snmp-mibs-downloader


Upload the zip file to the server and extract it by running.
unzip check_snmp_interface_status.zip

Change the folder by running.
cd check_snmp_interface_status

To compile the plugin run the following.

make clean
make

To install the plugin (Default location is /usr/local/nagios/libexec) run the following.
make install

Make a backup of the Perl plugin.
cp /usr/local/nagios/libexec/check_ifoperstatus /usr/local/nagios/libexec/check_ifoperstatus.bak

Overwrite the Perl script with the C version.
cp /usr/local/nagios/libexec/check_snmp_interface_status /usr/local/nagios/libexec/check_ifoperstatus

At this point, the new plugin will be used.

FYI, the plugin may be reverted back to the perl version if you upgrade XI to a newer version.
