Does this projector have a network connection?

If so does it have an SNMP interface you can write a plugin to monitor a specif SNMP OID to see if it is on or off?

yes Scott,

the projector is connected to the network and I can manage it from the web interface.
the manufacturer confirms that the snmp protocol is present on this model. could you give me an example of a script to be able to rehearse?

You will need to know the SNMP oid you need to monitor. Once you have that, you can monitor it with something like this

Code: Select all
/usr/local/nagios/libexec/check_snmp -H xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx -P 2c -C public -o .1.3.6.1.2.1.1.4.0


where public is your community string and .1.3.6.1.2.1.1.4.0 is the OID you want to monitor

perfect,
would you tell me how to find the OID of the projector? the manufacturer says that the projector is enabled for smnp.
I'm sorry but I found this installation of nagios at my new job, and having never worked there are in trouble.

We would have no way of knowing this, you would have to get that from the manufacturer.
