The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) Interface collector is used to allow the Linux agent to monitor the performance of remote SNMP-enabled devices like routers and switches. The collector can gather data from as many devices as necessary by adding additional configuration sections under the [devices] header; see the example below for details.
You should have SNMP set-up and your community string ready prior to activating the SNMP collector.
|enabled||FALSE||Enable collecting SNMP metrics.|
|path||interface||The file path to the SNMP Interface.|
|interval||60||How often the collector collects metrics (in seconds). Note The 60-second default may be taxing on your hardware. You may want to increase the collection interval to 120 seconds.|
|retries||3||Number of times the collector will retry before stopping.|
|timeout||5||Seconds before the SNMP connection will automatically timeout.|
|byte_unit||Default numeric output(s).|
|measure_collector_time||Measure the collector’s run time in milliseconds.|
|metrics_blacklist||Regex list to match metrics to block. Mutually exclusive with metrics_whitelistoption.|
|metrics_whitelist||Regex list to match metrics to transmit. Mutually exclusive with metrics_blacklistoption.|
