Huawei Storage Plugin 2.3 not working in Checkmk Enterprise Edition 2.1.0p18

i’ve updated my site from cme 1.6 to 2.1 and it seems that the huawei storage plugin 2.3 from Robert didn’t work anymore. I get the following error messages:

Some GUI extensions could not be loaded. This may be caused by some incompatible extension packages.

Loading “/omd/sites/XXXXXXX/local/share/check_mk/web/plugins/metrics/” failed: name ‘df_translation’ is not defined

Has anyone this plugin or a new one running on cme 2.1.x ?


huawei-3.1.1.mkp (28.5 KB)
I patched into it a little bit, but only had one device at a customer, so I’m not sure if this will fit all devices. But this should work in 2.1
thanks to @r.sander for the initial mkp :slight_smile:

We found that the Huawei SNMP agent is not efficient enough to use it.

The folks from comnet in Hannover implemented a special agent based on the Huawei HTTP API which works better. You have to ask them ( if you want to use it.

Is it possible to use this special agent for dorado devices as well?


I do not know. Please ask the comnet team.

Thx, for the new version. This worked for me. I remember to talk to some guys from comnet on the cmk conference. Perhaps i will find the contactdata and ask them for the special agent.
did you know if this agent supports dorado and oceanstor devices?


How does the new version work? When I install it, it doesn’t do anything on my site.
Can really see the Storage health with the plugin?


@gstolz Do you have by any chance a patched version for version 2.3?
I was really happy with the version 3.1.1 you provided. But I noticed it’s not supported with version 2.3.

Thankyou in advance for your reply.
Best Regards,

Hi erik,
not yet, the only customer with huawei we have is still on 2.2. I’m however curious: @fabian.binder do you guys still work on the huawei special agent? :slight_smile:
