Getting hp-snmp-agents on Lenny working

Hello,

 

I've received our HP ProLiant DL360 yesterday and I'd like to integrate the machine into our Munin system and thus enable ProLiant specific information to be exposed via snmp.

 

I'm running Debian Lenny with kernel 2.6.26-2-vserver-amd64 . I've followed http://downloads.linux.hp.com/SDR/getting_started.html and the HP repository has been added to /etc/apt/sources.list.d/HP-ProLiantSupportPack.list .

 

Setting up Lenny snmp itself is not a problem, I configure it to have a public v1 community string to read all data and it works. I install hp-snmp-agents and run "hpsnmpconfig" and it adds additional lines to the top of /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf : "dlmod cmaX /usr/lib64/libcmaX64.so" , snmpd gets restarted.

 

Via lsof I can see that libcmaX64 was loaded and is used by snmpd, put I do not get any additional information out of snmp. I use "snmpwalk -v 1 -c public ..." and I can see many OIDs but I do not see the new ones I'd expect, most notably temperatures, fan speed and such.

 

The OIDs I'm expecting are e.g. 1.3.6.1.4.1.232.6.2.6.8.1.4.1 , this is from the existing munin plugins from http://exchange.munin-monitoring.org/plugins/snmp__hp_temp/version/1 .

 

This is how it looks like after snmpd has been restarted:

This doesn't look particular bad for me, it's just informational I guess.

 

 

Are there any other prerequisites I'm missing?

 

I've also noticed that from the time I installed hp-snmp-agents it adds a lot of additional daemons and that my load suddenly jumps to 1. I've uninstalled the package for now. Is this expected behavior?

 

thanks,
