Use Dude to monitor linux server and/or Proxmox

Thu Apr 29, 2021 11:59 am

Is there any information on how to monitor linux servers and preferably Proxmox using the Dude?
I have only managed to install snmpd service and see some basic oids in the dude.
I would like to get disk statuses, thermal info, cpu and disk usage stati, VM stats etc

Is there any good source of information? I always end up on posts installing the dude in linux rather than using dude to monitor linux when I try to "google" it.

Thanks for any info!

This is not a dude issue, if you run a snmpwalk on your local machine you will probably see the same.
You need to configure the snmpd on the machine that you want to monitor to show you more info.
Default it just shows some basic info.

yes i know.

i try to monitor first a temperature disk

i create custom script
#!/bin/bash
sudo /usr/sbin/hddtemp -n /dev/sda
and add it on /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf
extend sda_temp /bin/bash /etc/snmp/scripts/sda_temp.bash

find correct oid and monitor it with the dude

for now works and i get temperature of sda
i should create script for every value i want to monitor...

i will test ....

Thanks for the recommendations. I managed to set it up, although I had been suffering with this problem for a long time and could not find an answer.
