Nagios: SNMP OID’s for IBM’s RSA II adapter

Well, after some poking around I finally found some OID’s for the RSA’s (only through these two links: check_rsa_fan and check_rsa_temp).

For Nagios, I dismissed the fans, since the fan speed is only passed on in percent values. So I only added this:

Oh, and if anyone else is curious like me, here’s the list with the OID’s, courtesy of Gerhard Gschlad and Leonardo Calamai.

For the fans:

And for the temperatures:

I just found a proper list of OID’s for the IBM RSA adapter. That’s rather nice, since I really was looking for the OID’s for the VRM failure OID and other warning/critical events.

Nagios: check_snmp again

Well, today I had to grind my head again, regarding the way check_snmp handles WARNING and CRITICAL events. From my point of view, check_snmp is really just retarded sometimes.

As you know, all the other plugins accept WARNING and CRITICAL-thresholds based on the calculation, if the return integer is above this threshold it reached WARNING/CRITICAL state. But check_snmp doesn’t play that way.

It expects only ranges, which are NOT gonna result in warning or critical events. Which is kinda stupid, since you gotta rethink twice about the thresholds 😛

All in all, another lesson learned 😮
