What type of counter/OID is used to generate SNMP Traffic graph for traffic in/out?



I'm using PRTG to monitor and graph the Traffic In and Out. What counter/OID is PRTG polling to collect this bandwidth data for Traffic In and Out?

I'm monitoring POS interfaces and Serial interfaces on Cisco routers.

If you run a "Scan Available Standard Interfaces" test using our SNMP Tester you can discern the available standard OIDs (including the one being monitored).
