  2. Set passwd with the SNMP community password
  3. Set oids
    • If you want to turn a counter into a gauge, specify ‘rate’
  4. (Optional)
    • Set carbon values, if you plan to send metric to a carbon

Usage

Currently, the brocade-tool is used for monitoring. Enter all the OIDs you want to monitor in the /etc/brocadetool.conf yaml file and that is it.

brocade-tool --help
usage: brocade-tool [-h] [--passwd PASSWD] [--dryrun] [--debug] [--verbose]
                    [--carbon]
                    BROCADE {show} ...

positional arguments:
  BROCADE          IP or name of Brocade
  {show}
    show           sub-command for showing objects

optional arguments:
  -h, --help       show this help message and exit
  --passwd PASSWD  Community password for brocade user. Default is to fetch
                   from brocadetool.conf
  --dryrun         Dryrun
  --debug          Shows what's going on
  --verbose, -v    Shows more info
  --carbon         Send data to carbon?

brocade-tool brocade01 show --help

positional arguments:
  {ports}
    ports     sub-command for showing stats about all ports

optional arguments:
  -h, --help  show this help message and exit

By default, brocade-tool will query the brocade device for all specified OIDs. If you wish to have it only query a sub set of OIDs, you can use –stat

brocade-tool brocade01 show ports --stat swFCPortTxWords swFCPortRxWords
