View Full Version : [ubuntu] Need simple SNMP help

March 3rd, 2009, 12:15 AM
I've been playing with some SNMP managers and agents, and now I want to setup my Ubuntu box so I can poll it via SNMP.

snmpd is running and I can do an snmpwalk and list the basic system objects (sysdesc, etc). But I can't find most of the nodes (dskTable, iface, etc, etc). It's like those nodes aren't being populated, but I don't know what to do to make it happen.

What do I need to do so the snmpd will serve up CPU, disk and RAM values?

Found answer on StackOverflow.com

Change /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf

com2sec paranoid default public
#com2sec readonly default public
#com2sec readwrite default private

#com2sec paranoid default public <-- comment this
com2sec readonly default public <-- uncomment this
#com2sec readwrite default private

Restart snmpd:
sudo /etc/init.d/snmpd restart

and bingo!:D
