SNMP and MIB files
today I play a bit with snmp.
I have to monitor humidity and temperature from a Megatec (Mega System Technologies) UPS, it has an external sensor to monitor humidity and temperature, in a server room is useful!
NetFeeler 2 (the external sensor) support snmp, so you can monitor temperature via snmp inside a nagios (centreon) and send alarms.
To work in a debian stable there are some things to do (extra to install snmpd):
1) copy the MIBs files (provided on a cdrom with the sensor) in /usr/share/snmp/mibs
2) use snmpbulkget and not snmpwalk it give the following error:
Error in packet.
Reason: (genError) A general failure occured
Failed object: SNMPv2-SMI::mib-188.8.131.52.1.0
3) read from the provided mib file (is a plain text file) the name of the value that we want read
4) read the values:
snmpbulkget -Cn2 -v 2c -c public 10.10.10.83 upsEnvHumidity upsEnvTemperature
XPPC-MIB::upsEnvHumidity.0 = INTEGER: 21
XPPC-MIB::upsEnvTemperature.0 = INTEGER: 212
the temperature is a float but they use an integer so 212 is 21.2 °C (I verify it from the NetAgent of the UPS).
