Hello,

I have the following problem when reading out a sonicwall NSA 2400 or NSA 3500. On both i have the same situation.

I want to read the bandwith usage through snmp. This is working fine but i have to quess the interface names because i only get this :

Name Status Speed Type 64bit Internal name (001) none Connected 0 KBit/s Software Loopback Yes none (002) none Connected 100 MBit/s Ethernet Yes none (003) none Not Connected 0 KBit/s Ethernet Yes none (004) none Connected 1 GBit/s Ethernet Yes none (005) none Connected 1 GBit/s Ethernet Yes none (006) none Not Connected 0 KBit/s Ethernet Yes none (007) none Connected 100 MBit/s Ethernet Yes none (008) gm6 Connected 0 KBit/s Ethernet Yes (009) gm7 Connected 0 KBit/s Ethernet Yes

I now have to quess whcih interface is the one i need. For instance 004 could be the LAN but also the DMZ interface.

I found an sonicwall KB article. There is an example and there it is working fine.

Am i doing something wrong?.

Regards,

Martijn

in the device settings go to the SNMP Compatibility options and use

[port] [ifalias][ifdescr]

as "Port Name Template"

then try to add the sensors anew. You should now have more information on your interfaces
