I’m trying to make sense of the output I am receiving from my SNMP checks. My goal is to set thresholds for CPU Load and set up alerts when the thresholds are exceeded. I’m using ./check_snmp to poll our cisco devices.
I’m getting this to work and display properly within the Nagios Web Interface meaning that it’s displaying the output from the ./check_snmp command which basically runs a simple snmpget command.
Here is my checkcommand.cfg:
$USER1$/check_snmp -H $HOSTADDRESS$ -C (passwd) -o (oid) -w (warning) -c (critical)
Here is my service check:
Now, this checks the Cisco device for the CPU load and outputs an Integer value. This integer value is where I am confused. Before I can specify a threshold that makes sense, I will need to know what this Integer represents.
Can anyone help me understand where to find out the meaning of the integer output for my CPU load check using check_snmp? Thanks
