How to configure SNMP monitoring in Zabbix?

To configure SNMP monitoring in Zabbix, follow the steps below:

  1. To install the SNMP plugin on the Zabbix server, make sure that the SNMP plugin is already installed on the Zabbix server. This can be done by using the command ‘yum install net-snmp-utils’ or ‘apt-get install snmp’.
  2. Set up SNMP service: edit the configuration file /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf to configure the SNMP service. Make sure to include the right community string and allow access for the Zabbix server.
  3. Start SNMP service: To start the SNMP service, you can use the command ‘systemctl start snmpd’ or ‘service snmpd start’.
  4. Add a SNMP host in Zabbix by accessing the Zabbix console, selecting “Hosts” under the “Configuration” tab, and clicking on the “Create Host” button. Fill in the host’s name, IP address, and other necessary information, then check the “Use SNMP” option and configure the SNMP version and community string.
  5. To add SNMP monitoring items: go to the host configuration page, click on the “Items” tab, then click on the “Create Item” button, fill in the item name, OID, unit, etc., and select the corresponding monitoring type and data type.
  6. Add trigger: On the main host configuration page, click on the “Triggers” tab, then click on the “Create Trigger” button. Fill in the trigger name and expression, and set the conditions and severity of the trigger.
  7. Enable monitoring: After saving the configuration, go to the “Monitoring” tab in the Zabbix console to check the status of monitoring items and triggers, ensuring they are functioning properly.

By following the above steps, you can configure SNMP monitoring in Zabbix to monitor the corresponding devices or services.
