AWS Lambda Layer for Net SNMP Tools.

Why SNMP?!


To be more clear: because I needed it as a cloud guy who works hard to integrate on-premises infrastructure with cloud. And SNMP is a reasonable way for a Lambda to extract information from decades of existing on-premises infrastructure.

This is why SNMP. :)

Building the Layer

  1. Make certain you have the jasondour/amazonlinux-gcc-devel Docker image needed to build the layer.

    $ docker images
    REPOSITORY                                                    TAG                 IMAGE ID            CREATED             SIZE
    jasondour/amazonlinux-gcc-devel                               latest              64ff20963c0a        7 minutes ago       668MB
    1. If you do not have the images, just pull them with a docker pull command.
  2. Confirm the build directory is clean.

    $ ls -1
  3. Then execute the docker jasondour/amazonlinux-gcc-devel image to run the build script.

    docker run -it -v `pwd`:/tmp/repo jasondour/amazonlinux-gcc-devel /tmp/repo/

Deploy the Layer

Once the layer zip file is created, you can deploy it to your AWS account with the following command:

aws lambda publish-layer-version --layer-name "net-snmp-58" --description "Net-SNMP Utilities for All Runtimes" --license-info "BSD-2-Clause" --zip-file "fileb://"
You can’t perform that action at this time.
