How to Install SNMP on UnRAID6

One of the things I like to have in my lab environment is the ability to monitoring all OSes and keep an eye on such things as temperatures, disk space, and other sensors.  I was disheartened to find that UnRAID 6 did not have SNMP installed or configured. After some searching I was able to figure out how to get SNMP installed.

First, Log into your UnRAID Web page and Click on Plugins

Then we go and reboot the server.  This step is not necessary, but I prefer to do this after each plugin install.

Next go to Settings, and Nerd Pack

Then we go and install the UnRaid SNMP Plugin following the same steps for the previous plugin install.

Login to the host via SSH console and verify that SNMP is working by executing

snmpwalk -v2c -c public localhost

You should see output similar to below.

Now you should be able to import your host into an SNMPD Based monitoring.
