Specs for POIP: SNMP + HTTPXML

Goal

We have Only SNMP for the moment.

To inventory Cisco IP phone for example, we need to get XML by HTTP and parse it.

Cisco IP phone CP-7940

We must get datas in XML from http. links are :

  • http://IP/DeviceInformationX
  • http://IP/EthernetInformationX
  • http://IP/NetworkConfigurationX
  • http://IP/PortInformationX?1
  • http://IP/PortInformationX?2
  • http://IP/PortInformationX?3
  • http://IP/StreamingStatisticsX?1
  • http://IP/StreamingStatisticsX?2

server HTTP headers

$curl -I 172.20.44.33
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Content-Type: text/xml; charset="utf-8"

Most of these fields can be used to identify the

Cisco IP phone CP-7945G

We must get datas in XML from http. links are :

  • http://IP/CGI/Java/Serviceability?adapterX=device.statistics.device
  • http://IP/CGI/Java/Serviceability?adapterX=device.statistics.configuration
  • http://IP/CGI/Java/Serviceability?adapterX=device.statistics.ethernet
  • http://IP/CGI/Java/Serviceability?adapterX=device.statistics.port.access
  • http://IP/CGI/Java/Serviceability?adapterX=device.statistics.port.network
  • http://IP/CGI/Java/Serviceability?adapterX=device.statistics.streaming.0
  • http://IP/CGI/Java/Serviceability?adapterX=device.statistics.streaming.1
  • http://IP/CGI/Java/Serviceability?adapterX=device.statistics.streaming.2
  • http://IP/CGI/Java/Serviceability?adapterX=device.statistics.streaming.3
  • http://IP/CGI/Java/Serviceability?adapterX=device.statistics.streaming.4

Modifications in Plugin GLPI

Idea: add a Web model. Eg:

<url></url>
<parsing>XML/HTML</parsing>
<key></key>
<name></name>

Modifications in agent / module SNMPQUERY
