SNMP integration for Grafana Cloud
The SNMP integration lets you monitor any generic SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) device.
Install SNMP integration for Grafana Cloud
- In your Grafana instance, Click Integrations and Connections (lightning bolt icon), then click on install integration on SNMP tile.
- Wait for the integration to be installed and then follow the steps shown to setup Grafana Agent to automatically scrape and send SNMP metrics to your Cloud Instance.
Pre-install configuration for the SNMP integration
The device you are trying to monitor must support reporting device data through SNMP protocol.
The instructions for enabling SNMP vary for each device. The SNMP daemon can also be installed on any linux device. Once SNMP is enabled for the device, install the Grafana agent where it can access the SNMP device on SNMP ports UDP/TCP 161 and 162 using the instructions given below.
Post-install configuration for the SNMP integration
The SNMP integration uses the embedded SNMP exporter inside the Grafana agent.
The configuration below enables the SNMP exporter integration for the Grafana agent.
<host_address_*> tags with the addresses of the relevant SNMP devices. Also configure the walk params according to your configuration.
integrations: snmp: enabled: true relabel_configs: - action: replace source_labels: [job] regex: (^.*snmp)\/(.*) target_label: job_snmp replacement: $1 - action: replace source_labels: [job] regex: (^.*snmp)\/(.*) target_label: snmp_target replacement: $2 snmp_targets: - name: network_switch_1 address: <host_address_1> module: if_mib walk_params: public - name: network_switch_2 address: <host_address_2> module: if_mib walk_params: public walk_params: public: version: 2 auth: community: public prometheus_remote_write: - url: http://cortex:9009/api/prom/push
