1.5 quality score

We run a couple of automated
scans to help you access a
module's quality. Each module is
given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

Please note, the information below
is for guidance only and neither of
these methods should be considered
an endorsement by Puppet.

tomitakussaari/snmp_rhel — version 1.0.0 Feb 11th 2013

SNMP Puppet Forge module for RHEL


  • Install SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol)
  • Add exec statements into /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf


puppet module install tomitakussaari/snmp_rhel


Installing exec tasks into /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf

# In site.pp
node "superserver" {
  snmp_rhel::snmpd_exec { "my-monitoring-task":
    command => "/opt/monitoring-scripts/"

The above snippet will append the line exec my-monitoring-task /opt/monitoring-scripts/ into /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf. If the line already exists, snmp_rhel::snmpd_exec will do nothing.

Removing tasks

You can remove SNMPD tasks by opening the file /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf and deleting the lines that begin with exec YOUR-TASK-NAME. Remember to run service snmpd restart afterwards.


If you modify the command or the task name, snmp_rhel::snmpd_exec will not remove the previous exec line from the /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf file. You will need to do this manually.
