Trying to check services on remote server via nagios


Hey everyone!

I’ve just installed nagios and got it up and running, and I am able to check services such as load, disk usage, and number of processes loacally on the server that nagios is hosted on, but I can’t seem to figure out how to check those services on a remote server using the check_snmp command. Could someone help me?



you need snmpd to be running on the remote server if you use check_snmp
use “man snmpd.conf” for configuration issues.
You may want to look at other methods too… check the stickies in the forum :wink:



Most switches, routers, and stuff like that has snmpd running on them by default.
