How to monitor snmp traffic on device without OID ifNumber.0?



Hello, I have Ericcsson MINI-LINK Traffic Node with full information about interfaces in ifTable, but when I try to get value of ifNumber.0 OID it returns "No such name" error.

As I understand without value in this OID "SNMP traffic" sensor cannot be created. PRTG also returns Error Message:"No Such Name (SNMP error # 2)".

How can I monitor interfaces bandwidth on this device?

thank you.

can you please use our SNMP Tester to scan against the device and try a bit with the OIDs and also try adding .1 or .2

Do you always get 'No such name'?

Best Regards

4/4/2011 5:39:50 PM Done 3312928 Status=0

Result: #N2

Found standard interfaces:

No standard interfaces found

I have the same result when adding .1 or .2 - "no such name".

ifTable shows 292 interfaces.

This very much sounds like a problem in the configuration. Maybe the used SNMP Community is not allowed to access this iftable or the OIDs.
