Proxmox graphing

It is possible to create graphs of the Proxmox VMs that run on your monitored machines. Currently, only traffic graphs are created. One for each interface on each VM. Possibly, IO graphs will be added later on.

The ultimate goal is to be able to create traffic bills for VMs, no matter on which physical machine that VM runs.

Enabling Proxmox graphs

To enable Proxmox graphs, do the following:

In config.php, enable Proxmox:

$config['enable_proxmox'] = 1;

Then, install git and librenms-agent on the machines running Proxmox and enable the Proxmox-script using:

cp /opt/librenms-agent/agent-local/proxmox /usr/lib/check_mk_agent/local/proxmox
chmod +x /usr/lib/check_mk_agent/local/proxmox

Then, enable and start the check_mk service using systemd

cp /opt/librenms-agent/[email protected] /opt/librenms-agent/check_mk.socket /etc/systemd/system
systemctl daemon-reload
systemctl enable check_mk.socket && systemctl start check_mk.socket

Then in LibreNMS active the librenms-agent and proxmox application flag for the device you are monitoring. You should now see an application in LibreNMS, as well as a new menu-item in the topmenu, allowing you to choose which cluster you want to look at.

Note, if you want to use use xinetd instead of systemd

Its possible to use the librenms-agent started by xinetd instead of systemd. One use case is if you are forced to use a old Proxmox installation. After installing the librenms-agent (see above) please copy enable the xinetd config, then restart the xinetd service:

cp check_mk_xinetd /etc/xinetd.d/check_mk
/etc/init.d/xinetd restart
