Send variable string through snmp query
I need your help
I have the following scenario: I have a local machine and a remote machine. In my local machine I have a snmp client (nagios) performing a snmp query to my remote machine.
In my remote machine I have a private OID pointing to the following command: "perl /test/script.pl -s Metrix Probe01"
My problem is the following: the string "Probe01" is a variable field. It can be Probe01 or Probe02, Probe03 and so on...
I donīt want to create several OIDīs to each probe. I want to have one OID, but a "variable" OID (if such thing is possible).
I want to have a OID pointing to the following command:
perl /test/script.pl -s Metrix $Probe
and I want to send the variable $Probe from my local machine through the snmp query: is it possible? If so, how?
Any help is apreciated.
