Ok I have compiled a mib but does not take into an account labels definitions in the MIB file. My hardware (radiolinie) returns a moulation as an integer, and there is nice value to text definition in the MIB. Can I some how get this to be displayed as a text coresponding to every value?

Here is the look of my mib.

rfModulationType OBJECT-TYPE
	SYNTAX      INTEGER
	{
		rfModulationQPSK(1),
		rfModulationQAM-16(2),
		rfModulationQAM-64(3)
	}
	MAX-ACCESS  read-only
	STATUS      current
	DESCRIPTION

custom-sensor labels snmp

I'm afraid that isn't possible. Sorry.

I place this information in parentheses in the 'Value' field when creating the sensor like the following: (1-OK, 2-WARNING, 3-CRITICAL, 4-SHUTDOWN, 5-NOT_PRESENT, 6-NOT_FUNCTIONING)

This shows on alerts, too, so you can get the legend of values corresponding to the integer output and don't have to bust out the MIB every time.

I thought this was a new feature in PRTG 9, but I can't find anything about it other than this post.

Blake, when you do this it just shows everything you add in the output, it doesn't actually process it, correct?
