Nagios plugins - interfacetable_v3t

star  Interfacetable_v3t


Interfacetable_v3t (formerly check_interface_table_v3t) is a Nagios(R) addon that allows you to monitor the network interfaces of a node (e.g. router, switch, server) without knowing each interface in detail. Only the hostname (or ip address) and the snmp community string are required. It generates a html page gathering some info on the monitored node and a table of all interfaces/ports and their status.

Interfacetable_v3t (or check_interface_table_v3t.pl, which is the name of the plugin script) comes from:

  • check_interface_table.pl: plugin released by ITdesign Software Projects & Consulting. this is the first version of the plugin, extracted from the commercial suite proposed by ITdesign.
  • check_interface_table_v2.pl: plugin released by NETWAYS GmbH, it adds the performance data related to bandwidth usage.

This version, called Interfacetable_v3t, provides lots of new features and enhancements:

  • externalization of the html page design in css stylesheets and js files
  • extended interface inclusion/exclusion system
  • full documentation
  • code review and cleaned, following the nagios plugin development guidelines

  • snmp v1/v2c/v3 supported with several snmp options available
  • 64bits counters support
  • error/discard packet tracking, duplex status tracking
  • Juniper Netscreen extended mode (including vsys, zone and management protocols)
  • more and more supported devices
