I have a piece of MPEG video equipment that I am trying to monitor. The logical layout of the system is very similar to that of the built-in SNMP bandwidth monitoring tools; there are multiple virtual interfaces, each with multiple OIDs that I would like to monitor (errored seconds, lost packets, rate).
I have literally hundreds of these virtual interfaces to monitor, and I need to set up a system whereupon network operations personnel can easily add and remove them from the PRTG system.
So far, the only solution I see is to add multiple SNMP custom sensors and then build a Sensor factory on top to aggregate the data into multiple channels of a single sensor. This solution does not seem manageable when dealing with 200 devices and 800 or more virtual interfaces. I also know that I can create a batch file to do the queries, but this seems to be creating an awful lot of work for something that PRTG already does for bandwidth on router interfaces.
What I really want to do is to clone the router interface bandwidth sensor, and change the OIDs and names that are polled in the various channels. Is this possible?
