How to Monitor Canon Printers with SNMP

I’m working to set up monitoring of Canon printers with SNMP, and I’m having a hard time finding resources around the internet on how to go about doing this, so this article will be collecting the resources I’ve found and putting them in once place. Commands for Monitoring Canon Printers with SNMP One of the problems that I had to look into was monitoring of CANON printers, and properly modifying Nagios config files for that: Once you understand a little how NAGIOS works you will understand what I am trying to show you here in example: in /usr/local/nagios/etc/objects/commands.cfg I added a command: define command{ command_name check_snmp_canon command_line $USER1$/check_snmp -H $HOSTADDRESS$ -l STATUS -C public $ARG1$ $ARG2$ } then in: /usr/local/nagios/etc/objects/printer.cfg you define host and service like this: define host{ use generic-printer host_name SOMECANONPRINTER alias SOMECANONPRINTER Alias address “IP of the printer goes here” hostgroups network-printers } define service{ use generic-service host_name SOMECANONPRINTER service_description Printer Status check_command check_snmp_canon!-o hrDeviceStatus.1 -r “2|3” normal_check_interval 10 retry_check_interval 1 } via http://mariuszgal.com/blog/?p=93 Some of the commands I’ve tried to execute directly from the command line use something like this: /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_snmp -H 192.168.0.105 -C public -o hrDeviceStatus.1 snmpwalk -v <snmp version, typically ‘2c’> -c <community string> <agent address, e.g. ‘192.168.3.141’> 1.3.6.1 snmpwalk -v 2c -c public 192.168.0.104 What is SNMP Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is a set of standards for managing network devices, network devices are monitored by a SNMP manager which connects to an SNMP agent on network devices.
