LibreNMS is capable of monitoring stats for CAPEv2. This is handled by a SNMP extend.

wget -O /etc/snmp/cape
chmod +x /etc/snmp/cape
apt-get install libfile-readbackwards-perl libjson-perl libconfig-tiny-perl libdbi-perl libfile-slurp-perl libstatistics-lite-perl libdbi-perl libdbd-pg-perl

With that all in place, you will then need to create a config file for it at /usr/local/etc/cape_extend.ini. Unless you are doing anything custom DB wise, the settings below, but with the proper PW will work.

# DBI connection DSN

# DB user


This module will also send warnings, errors, and critical errors found in the logs to LibreNMS. To filter these, /usr/local/etc/cape_extend.ignores can be used. The format for that is as below.

<ignore level> <pattern>

This the ignore level will be lower cased. The separator between the level and the regexp pattern is /[\ \t]+/. So if you want to ignore the two warnings generated when VM traffic is dropped, you would use the two lines such as below.

WARNING PCAP file does not exist at path
WARNING Unable to Run Suricata: Pcap file

On the CAPEv2 side, you will need to make a few tweaks to reporting.conf. litereport will need enabled and keys_to_copy should include ‘signatures’ and ‘detections’.

Finally will need to enable the extend for your

extend cape /etc/snmp/extends/cape

Once snmpd is restarted and the the device rediscovered via LibreNMS, you will then be able to

For more detailed monitoring, if using KVM, you will likely want to also considering using HV::Monitor, which will allow detailed monitoring various stats VMs.
