GetBulk on an SNMP Custom Sensor



Is there anyway to do a GetBulk for a specific OID on a sensor?

For example: I've been trying to do this with ospfNbrState ( Using this OID doesn't work (SNMP Error #223). However, if I'm more specific and create an SNMP custom sensor pointing at a specific neighbor ( then it works, I just don't want to do this for every single individual neighbor.

I'm afraid such "GetBulk"-Requests are not possible. Please either use MIBs with our MIB-Importer or the Custom SNMP Sensors for single explicit OIDs.

Best Regards.
