We are using the Dynatrace Managed version to monitor our cloud and on-premise environment. We would like to know if there are options to monitor SNMP based devices.
We saw the plug-in being available with Appmon but we would like to know if its possible without Appmon.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Please take a look at the github page below for a script you can use to feed this data into Dynatrace. Please let me know if this helps.
With the ActiveGate RemoteAgent extension framework we can now monitor any remote technology that exposes an interface.
It is important to note that custom extensions such as this (or custom data through the Dynatrace API) will consume 'Custom Metric' licensing.
In the case of SNMP I have developed an extension for basic device health monitoring (UNOFFICIAL).
This will provide metrics for any device listening on SNMP v2/3 and supporting HOST-RESOURCES-MIB and/or IF-MIB. It also adds properties collected from SNMPv2-MIB such as sysuptime and sysdescr.
IF-MIB (Per Interface)
You could clone and adapt this to be more device specific if additional device metrics are required.
Dynatrace already has integration for vCenter:
If you have Dynatrace Managed you don't need anything. If you have Dynatrace SaaS you just need an Environment ActiveGate.
I'm trying to configure this plugin after following all the installation steps, but getting below error while trying to add an endpoint. Please help.
Error(Cannot load native module 'Cryptodome.Cipher._raw_ecb': Trying '_raw_ecb.cpython-36m-x86_64-linux-gnu.so': cannot load library '/opt/dynatrace/Security-Gateway/remotepluginmodule/plugin_deployment/custom.remote.python.snmp-base/Cryptodome/Util/../Cipher/_r)
Hi, can the plugin provided by @Brayden N. be used to collect metrics from Flex Manager/Dell Server manager? The Dynatrace partner who is managing my environment is saying that can't be used, but the GitHub page where the plugin is stored says "You can fork and adapt this to poll for any SNMP exposed metrics"
The plugin should work to monitor some basic metrics for Flex Manager/Dell Server manager.
Anything more specific would require extending the plugin to poll for Flex/Dell specific OIDs and MIB files.
