I’m using centron plugin for sonicwall snmp to monitor some appliances, i have a scenario with 3 appliances and IPSEC VPNs betwen then and to a cloud provider…

I have made some changes to monitor only the necessary, avoid unwanted resource usage on network and the sonicwall appliance but i believe that sonicwall can’t handle the number of snmp requests and the processing needed to answer each one…

I dont have problems while checink cpu, net, mem with snmp, but in order to check IPSEC VNP status the plugin is requesting the status of all vpn’s and filtering the output for the one i want, but in some cases i’m checking 10 VPNs…the check command receives a <Timeout exceeded.><Terminated by signal 15 (Terminated).> response due to the lack of response from sonicwall appliance…

I was hoping to do one check execution and from the output (that contains all vpn’s info) create one service for each vpn… is it possible?

This is the command that is being executed:

/usr/lib64/nagios/plugins/centreon-plugins/ --privpassphrase notsofast --subsetleef 20 --snmp-version 3 --snmp-username justauser --snmp-timeout 90 --snmp-force-getnext --snmp-autoreduce --range-perfdata 1 --privprotocol AES --authpassphrase notsofast --plugin network::sonicwall::snmp::plugin --opt-exit critical --mode vpn --hostname --filter-name VPN-NAME-EXAMPLE --change-short-output No vpn found.~VPN down. --authprotocol SHA



Yes, see:



Sorry for the lack of feedback…

With this specific plugin we are using an apply rule were we set the names of vpn’s we want to monitor and the services are correctly created…but looking into the check command it self, all vpns status are requested and the one we have requested is filtered from the command output…

So, if we monitor 2 vpn’s, this process would be done 2 times

  • Check command would request all vpns status
  • Filter out the one we need
  • Do it all again for the second vpn

In our scenario we had ~14 vpns per sonicwall appliance…

I didn’t found a solution for this… we end up configuring a ping check to monitor the communication between sites, but any tips/suggestions are appreciated…
