APC PDU's


#1

anyone know if there is a special plugin needed to monitor APC pdu units ?

or can I add it to services.cfg with snmp ?
the APC units have a web interface with SNMP config options.

thanks
newbie loser.

Hi!

sorry, I don’t even know what’s an APC pdu unit.

However, if it can answer to SNMP queries, you should have a look at the “check_snmp” plug in;
you can find it in the nagios plugins.

run it with the --help option, and it should be clear :slight_smile:
if not, don’t hesitate to post again

sorry,

PDU is power distribution unit

APC is the manufacture. the make power supply units.
this is a rack power supply. it has a web based and ssh interface that will
send snmp traps for monitoring.
