       munin-node-configure - View and modify which plugins are	enabled.

	 munin-node-configure [options]

       munin-node-configure reports which plugins are enabled on the current
       node, and suggest changes to this list.

       By default this program shows which plugins are activated on the

       If you specify "--suggest", it will present a table of plugins that
       will probably work (according to	the plugins' autoconf command).

       If you specify "--snmp",	followed by a list of hosts, it	will present a
       table of	SNMP plugins that they support.

       If you additionally specify "--shell", shell commands to	install	those
       same plugins will be printed. These can be reviewed or piped directly
       into a shell to install the plugins.

	   Show	this help page.

	   Show	version	information.

	   Print debug information on the operations of
	   "munin-node-configure".  This can be	very verbose.

	   All debugging output	is printed to STDOUT, and each line is
	   prefixed with '#'.  Only errors are printed to STDERR.

	   Plugin debug.  Sets the environment variable	MUNIN_DEBUG to 1 so
	   that	plugins	may enable debugging.

       --config	<file>
	   Override configuration file [/usr/local/etc/munin/munin-node.conf]

       --servicedir <dir>
	   Override plugin directory [/usr/local/etc/munin/plugins/]

       --sconfdir <dir>
	   Override plugin configuration directory

       --libdir	<dir>
	   Override plugin library [/usr/local/share/munin/plugins/]

	   Suggest plugins that	might be added or removed, instead of those
	   that	are currently enabled.

       By default, "munin-node-configure" will print out a table summarising
       the results.

	   Instead of a	table, print shell commands to install the new plugin

	   This	implies	"--suggest", unless "--snmp" was also enabled.	By
	   default, it will not	attempt	to remove any plugins.

	   When	"--shell" is enabled, also provide commands to remove plugins
	   that	are no longer applicable from the service directory.

       --families <family,...>
	   Override the	list of	families that will be used (auto, manual,
	   contrib, snmpauto).	Multiple families can be specified as a	comma-
	   separated list, by repeating	the "--families" option, or as a
	   combination of the two.

	   When	listing	installed plugins, the default families	are 'auto',
	   'manual' and	'contrib'.  Only 'auto'	plugins	are checked for
	   suggestions.	 SNMP probing is only performed	on 'snmpauto' plugins.

       --newer <version>
	   Only	consider plugins added to the Munin core since <version>.
	   This	option is useful when upgrading, since it can prevent plugins
	   that	have been manually removed from	being reinstalled.  This only
	   applies to plugins in the 'auto' family.

   SNMP	Options
       --snmp <host|cidr,...>
	   Probe the SNMP agents on the	host or	CIDR network (e.g.
	   ""), to see what plugins they support.	This may take
	   some	time, especially if the	many hosts are specified.

	   This	option can be specified	multiple times,	or as a	comma-
	   separated list, to include more than	one host/CIDR.

       --snmpversion <ver>
	   The SNMP version (1,	2c or 3) to use. ['2c']

       --snmpport <port>
	   The SNMP port to use	[161]

       --snmpdomain <domain>
	   The Transport Domain	to use for exchanging SNMP messages. The
	   default is UDP/IPv4.	Possible values: 'udp',	'udp4',	'udp/ipv4';
	   'udp6', 'udp/ipv6'; 'tcp', 'tcp4', 'tcp/ipv4'; 'tcp6', 'tcp/ipv6'.

       SNMP 1/2c authentication
	   SNMP	versions 1 and 2c use a	"community string" for authentication.
	   This	is a shared password, sent in plaintext	over the network.

       --snmpcommunity <string>
	   The community string	for version 1 and 2c agents.  ['public'] (If
	   this	works your device is probably very insecure and	needs a
	   security checkup).

       SNMP 3 authentication
	   SNMP	v3 has three security levels. Lowest is	"noAuthNoPriv",	which
	   provides neither authentication nor encryption.  If a username and
	   "authpassword" are given it goes up to "authNoPriv",	and the
	   connection is authenticated.	 If "privpassword" is also given the
	   security level becomes "authPriv", and the connection is
	   authenticated and encrypted.

	   Note: Encryption can	slow down slow or heavily loaded network
	   devices.  For most uses "authNoPriv"	will be	secure enough -- the
	   password is sent over the network encrypted in any case.

	   ContextEngineIDs are	not (yet) supported.

	   For further reading on SNMP v3 security models please consult
	   RFC3414 and the documentation for Net::SNMP.

       --snmpusername <name>
	   Username.  There is no default.

       --snmpauthpassword <password>
	   Authentication password.  Optional when encryption is also enabled,
	   in which case defaults to the privacy password

       --snmpauthprotocol <protocol>
	   Authentication protocol.  One of 'md5' or 'sha' (HMAC-MD5-96,
	   RFC1321 and SHA-1/HMAC-SHA-96, NIST FIPS PIB	180, RFC2264).

       --snmpprivpassword <password>
	   Privacy password to enable encryption.  There is no default.	 An
	   empty ('') password is considered as	no password and	will not
	   enable encryption.

	   Privacy requires a privprotocol as well as an authprotocol and a
	   authpassword, but all of these are defaulted	(to 'des', 'md5', and
	   the privpassword value, respectively) and may therefore be left

       --snmpprivprotocol <protocol>
	   If the privpassword is set this setting controls what kind of
	   encryption is used to achieve privacy in the	session.  Only the
	   very	weak 'des' encryption method is	supported officially.  ['des']

	   munin-node-configure	also supports '3des' (CBC-3DES-EDE, aka
	   Triple-DES, NIST FIPS 46-3) as specified in IETF
	   draft-reeder-snmpv3-usm-3desede.  Whether or	not this works with
	   any particular device, we do	not know.
