NetApp monitoring in CheckMK

To use the special agent of the checkmk which collects data from a NetApp filer instead of SNMP do the following:

  1. Download the Netapp Manageability SDK from NetApp (a login is required). This can be downloaded here.
  2. Login to OMD with su – sitename
  3. Copy the two python files ‘’ and ‘’ to the OMD directory /omd/sites/sitename/local/lib/python
