DCE monitored from Nagios

This question was originally posted on DCIM Support by Christian Sand on 2016-01-14


Hi 

I have a customer who wants  to check if his DCE server is alive from his Nagios server.

Is there any Services that he is able to check on?

Or any OID´s that can report the status of the DCE Server

Thanks

Hi Christian,

 

DCE responds to a few Linux based OIDs. If you enable SNMP in the server access tab, you could for instance query:

.iso.org.dod.internet.mgmt.mib-2.system.sysUpTime

That will give you server up time. That will not however verify that all processes are running, only that the OS is running. 

 

You could try polling DCE using it's web API and if you can get device information, you can tell if it's both working and polling device info. The customer would have to code to this API and I don't know what options Nagios has but I tend to think that this may not be one.

 

The only other option I can think of is to create a threshold and send an e-mail. You can have it repeat at a max 1440 minutes:

 

You could do this with a trap as well but if you're using the NMS integration feature, any threshold will alert using that option as well and it won't follow the alert action scheduling.

Hello, Steven! And how can I get list of those few OIDs you mentioned at the beginning of your answer?

Hi Nikita,

 

I've actually seen them change from version to version and the number of responses has increased lately. I think it's best if you run an SNMPwalk yourself so that you can make more sense of the responses. Running 7.4.3, I've done a walk but to remove potentially sensitive info, I've removed the responses and edited other lines. I've no more info on what each line is.
