cfgstoragemaker - MRTG config generator for storage monitoring via SNMP
cfgstoragemaker community@host [community@host] [...]
The purpose of cfgstoragemaker is to remotely generate a MRTG config
file in order to graph all the storage devices (disk, memory and swap)
of one or more specific host(s) via SNMP.
As you can imagine, it was heavily inspired by cfgmaker.
One of the most important advantages of cfgstoragemaker is that you
don’t have to install and run MRTG on the servers you want to monitor,
everything is done remotely on a distinct and centralized monitoring
host. The datas are acquired by SNMP.
Moreover, you don’t have to worry about the list of all the mounted
partitions and their size, cfgstoragemaker will do that for you.
Cfgstoragemaker is written in Perl.
SNMP MIB file provided by ucd-snmp
