No Such Name (SNMP error # 2)

I was monitoring a cisco 3825 router with multiple serial interfaces. For some reason out of the blue on one of the interfaces it suddenly shows this error: No Such Name (SNMP error # 2)

This was working fine up till this morning. I tried forcing 32bit SNMP but that did not seem to resolve it. I can find nothing different on this interface then there was before this error started.

prtg serial-interface snmp

Dear Bill,

does a new sensor work for this particular interface? If so, could there have been any event which may have caused the router to change the OID for this interface?

Best Regards.

Changing the version of the SNMP protocol from v2c to v1 works for me.

Have you enabled the 32bit counters -> Force-options in the device's Settings (in PRTG) before trying to add the sensor?

Then please try to use a SNMP Custom Sensor with an explicit OID.

Then it might not be possible to monitor this counter with PRTG in the moment.
