How to enable SNMP?


#1

Hello,

How to enable SNMP on FreePBX 13 Distro?
I try yum install snmpd, but no success:

[root@server ~]# yum install snmpd
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, kmod
Setting up Install Process
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
base | 2.0 kB 00:00
extras | 1.3 kB 00:00
pbx | 2.9 kB 00:00

updates | 1.3 kB 00:00
No package snmpd available.
Error: Nothing to do

You can install it with:

yum install net-snmp

#3

Thank you, now i can monitor Uptime via SNMP.
But cannot monitor network interface traffic. Why?

You probably don’t have the correct Asterisk MIB installed. This is an SNMP question, not a FreePBX question. Perhaps asking in an SNMP forum will get you some more complete answers.

yum install net-snmp.x86_64

but, in my case, the startup script was not installed…
so i had to create my /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf

rocommunity public
syslocation Metron6, Kalamaria, Thessaloniki
_syscontact George _
disk /

and i had to create the startup script in /etc/init.d/snmpd

this is the script:

#!/bin/bash

ucd-snmp init file for snmpd

chkconfig: - 50 50

Can you put that into a code block? The HTMLized version you sent out isn’t going to help a lot of people.
