I have just started to learn snmp protocols and notably centreon program and I need to find out how can a verify a web-page response or a web-service (in HTTP simple mode).

The only sourse I have found for a moment is this one https://documentation-fr.centreon.com/docs/plugins-packs/fr/1.x/catalog.html where it says "App-Protocol-HTTP, a model to supervise an HTTP server".

I wonder what that suppose to mean? Is it somehow linked to a snmp protocol or not at all?

    SNMP is not designed to check HTTP responses. Wrong tool for the task!

Centreon can collect information on various systems using SNMP, that's true.

But Centreon plugins can add other methods for collecting information. In particular, App-Protocol-HTTP adds the ability to make HTTP queries and check for:

  • response time
  • presence of a specific string in a HTTP response
  • presence of specific SOAP or JSON content

This has nothing to do with SNMP. With plugins, Centreon can and will do more than just SNMP.
