    It will hopefully have SNMP. I have a script I used to use for my 8100 Xerox printers but I noticed it works on other printer too including HP etc as the oids must be fairly standard numbers. I will dig it up for you. If it hasn't got snmp then hopefully it has some kind of status page which you will need to write a script to extract the relevant bits from the HTML page. For more information on that, read this thread grep masters wanted.

    It does have snmp, but on the web page config for the printer it talks about IP Trap Destination Address and stuff like that, and im not really too sure about... Ive not used snmp before..

    You don't need to configure the SNMP trap address stuff.

    Baiscally, you can either pull information (ike we are doing) or push information (to a central point for processing) with SNMP.

    Is there an example config file for a xerox, I tried to use the sample printer one but thats for a hp and it shows the ping, but the other 2 reports it says it cannot get information, plugin not installed or something (the hpjd line)

    Having just updated our nagios box due to hdd failure, I can`t make the previously working HP Procurve cpu load test to work.

    We did upgrade from debian 4 to 5 and nagios 2 to nagios 3, but the config files were copied across.

    All other procurve snmp checks work fine.

    (Installation details copied from the wiki)

    Any debugging suggestions?

    I installed Nagios recently on redhat. The Quickstart guide is very useful for V3.0

    Nagios Quickstart Installation Guides

    Reading Rics guide just now to see if I can get it to monitor anything, cheers Ric!

    Cheers for that. Used that to get it up and running in under 10 mins.

    I also used this page for info on how to set it to use the builtin sendmail in ubuntu:

    Nagios notification commands and Postfix sendmail

    I also changed the default web conf so the main site was running nagios, not runinng as website/nagios.

    Its all working great now, just need to get some plugins for some printers and switches
