NAME

snmp__winmem - Munin plugin to monitor memory usage on an SNMP device.

APPLICABLE SYSTEMS

Any SNMP-capable device that reports the HOST-RESOURCES-MIB::hrSWRunPerfMem column for the hrSWRunPerfTable.

In particular, this allows memory usage to be monitored on machines running Microsoft Windows.

CONFIGURATION

As a rule SNMP plugins need site specific configuration. The default configuration (shown here) will only work on insecure sites/devices.

   [snmp_*]
        env.version 2
        env.community public

In general SNMP is not very secure at all unless you use SNMP version 3 which supports authentication and privacy (encryption). But in any case the community string for your devices should not be "public".

Please see 'perldoc Munin::Plugin::SNMP' for further configuration information.

INTERPRETATION

The amount of memory currently in use by the processes on the system.

MIB INFORMATION

This plugin requires support for the HOST-RESOURCES-MIB (RFC 2790). It uses the contents of the hrSWRunPerfMem column of hrSWRunPerfTable.
