check_snmp missing


Hello Everyone,

I’ve tried already a lot (from downloading snmp plugins, the nagios plugins, net-snmp plugins… and I don’t know what else). I can’t get the check_snmp plugin installed.

I’m running a CentOS 5.1 32bit installation, with nagios 3.0rc2. Other than that, everything is working fine.
I used Net-SNMP-5.2.0.tar.gz, nagios-plugins-setuid-1.4.11-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm, check_snmp_plugins.tar.gz, SNMP_Session-1.11.tar.gz
and even the described perl -MCPAN -e “install Net::SNMP” installation.

This is my /libexec list:
check_apt check_file_age check_log check_oracle check_tcp
check_breeze check_flexlm check_mailq check_overcr check_time
check_by_ssh check_ftp check_mrtg check_ping check_udp
check_clamd check_http check_mrtgtraf check_pop check_ups
check_cluster check_icmp check_nagios check_procs check_users
check_dhcp check_ide_smart check_nntp check_real check_wave
check_dig check_ifoperstatus check_nt check_rpc negate
check_disk check_ifstatus check_ntp check_sensors urlize
check_disk_smb check_imap check_ntp_peer check_smtp
check_dns check_ircd check_ntp_time check_ssh
check_dummy check_load check_nwstat check_swap

Does anyone know how to do it now… cause I’m running outta ideas…
Might be I’m missing some issue (major or minor)

Thanks in advance,


I’m having the same problem. I have Ubuntu Server 7.10 installed.


I have search a lot for an answer but I haven’t found any. The only thing is that you have to install:
nagios-snmp-plugins &

I’ll keep searching. Please advice on this.


Hey Guyz,
totally forgot about this, since nobody replied to it either… I solved my issue like this:
download … 2.4.tar.gz
extract and ./configure… then make and make install. Should do the trick… did it for me at least…

Good luck


I did what you suggested, but again, recompiling the nagios-plugins I got many errors and warning.
I downloaded the nagios-plugins again and recompile them. That fix the entire plugins.

I have now the check_snmp!!!
