I can't install net-snmp-utils

Postby juliobaglivo » Fri Sep 23, 2011 10:07 am

Hello everybody, I'm trying to install the check_snmp plugin to monitor routers and switches but it's a prerequisite that net-snmp-utils must be installed in my OpenSuse.
Does anybody know how can I get and install net-snmp-utils on muy OpenSuse?
Thanks in advance

If you cannot install the NET-SNMP via Suse's standard package-management tools you can get the source from the NET-SNMP project and build it locally.

Before I was forced to migrate off Solaris/SPARC and onto CentOS/Intel I always built from scratch, but now I just use "yum" to install pre-compiled packages. (I miss building from source and having The Canonical Reference handy.)

My specific issue is this: I am looking as to where I can download net-snmp-utils. I have installed nagios and per documentation I will need to install net-snmp and/or net-snmp-utils in order for me to monitor snmp traffic. I have suse as the distro and does far I cannot find a tar for the net-snmp-utils. Do I need net-snmp-utils or is net-snmp sufficient? Any suggestions or howto is greatly appreciated

There may not be a latest binary package for Suse yet, but an earlier version of a NET-SNMP package may be found here.

If you need (or want) the latest version, the best bet is to download the source tarball here, untar it into a local directory, and follow the directions for building and installing it. That will satisfy the requirement of "net-snmp-utils", although your local package-management system will not be aware of it. It's worth noting that by following the instruction that come with the NET_SNMP source the utility will likely install into the /usr/local hierarchy and you will need to tell that to the configuration script when you build the Nagios Plugins, or make sure that the /usr/local hierarchy is in your nagios user's PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment.
