SNMP HOST-RESOURCES-MIB: Usage of Physical and Virtual RAM

Distribution: official part of Check_MK
License: GPL
Supported Agents: SNMP

This check measures the usage of physical RAM and virtual memory using the HOST-RESOURCES-MIB, which is provided by many SNMP agents (especially those on standard operating systems).

The logic used for monitoring is exactly the same as in the agent based check mem.used. Please refer to the man page of that check for details.


One service is created for the target host if the needed information is available via SNMP.
