Summary 0000220: check_snmp does not read snmp.conf files
Description check_snmp does not read snmp.conf files (as the standard UCD-SNMP utilities do), which makes it impossible to use SNMP version 3 without passing the password on the commandline and thus exposing the password in the process table.

This is in check_snmp v1.4.14 (nagios-plugins 1.4.14).

I had to implement this feature off nagios-plugins-1.4.15 since we needed that for our monitoring server.

I am unaware of the normal way to provide patches so I attached it to the ticket itself. I left the error validation to the External command. If an invalid etry is provided, we will receive an exit code of 3 and the error message will appear as "External command error: <error>";

This worked on RHEL5 with NET-SNMP

Look like I uploaded the wrong file. The first one (nagios-plugins-1.4.15-snmp_conf.patch) should work for SNMP3. At least, it works on our servers. Yet, I forgot the community string on that first one since we don't use SNMP v2 that much anymore: only for windows. This was solved on the second version: nagios-plugins-1.4.15-snmp_conf_final.patch
