Additional Options

The default SNMP timeout for individual operations is set to 30 seconds. To change the timeout for a service check, simply click on the menu for the service check you want to configure and select 'Edit configuration for Service Check'.

Edit Service Check

Select the 'Plugin and Arguments' tab, and add the timeout flag to the list of Arguments.

Add Timeout Flag

Submit changes and your changes will be applied.

If a timeout is specified, the provided value is used if it falls within the range 1.0 to 60.0 seconds. If the value is more than 60.0 seconds, the value is capped at 60.0 seconds.

SNMP - MIB-II is IPv4 and IPv6 compatible. If you want to bind the host to a specific IP version, edit the 'Interface Poller' Service Check and add --use_ipv4/-4 flag for IPv4 or --use-ipv6/-6 flag for IPv6 to the list of arguments. If IP version is not specified, the plugin will use the first response of the domain name resolution.

Step 3: Apply changes and the system will be monitored
