From Source

  1. git clone
  2. cd brocade-tool
  3. sudo python install
  4. sudo mkdir -p /var/log/brocade-tool
  5. sudo touch /var/log/brocade-tool/brocade-tool.log
  6. sudo chown <user>:<group> /var/log/brocade-tool/brocade-tool.log
  7. sudo chmod <mode> /var/log/brocade-tool/brocade-tool.log
  8. sudo cp brocadetool.conf.example /etc/brocadetool.conf
  9. Modify /etc/brocadetool.conf


All changes should be made in /etc/brocadetool.conf

  1. Set previous_data_path to the path where brocade-tool where store metric for any OIDs that have rate option set.
  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


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.
