|Description:||SNMP agent for PostgreSQL (1.0-4)|
pgsnmpd is an SNMP agent for PostgreSQL which implements RDBMS-MIB, as defined in RFC 1697. This MIB was developed by a group of representatives from different database manufacturers, and describes various attributes common to most relational database management systems. Because it was designed as the least common denominator, it doesn't show very much detail and there are definitely a number of things RDBMS-MIB doesn't cover that PostgreSQL administrators would be very interested in. Future versions of pgsnmpd will support a second MIB, tentatively called PGSQL-MIB, in addition to RDBMS-MIB. This PGSQL-MIB will be PostgreSQL-specific, and will include many more data points of interest to PostgreSQL users and administrators.
The best way to use pgsnmpd is to enable AgentX in your net-snmp (this package is compatible both with the system net-snmp, and Fink's version) by adding the following lines in your snmpd.conf: master agentx agentXSocket tcp:localhost:705 Then, start pgsnmpd with the connection options to connect to your PostgreSQL database instance: /sw/sbin/pgsnmpd -s -C "dbname=template1 user=postgres"
