SNMP Traffic grapher timeout due to interface amount



When adding the SNMP Traffic graphs to our router with a huge amount of interfaces it times out before completion.

I have verified SNMP functionality with other SNMP graphs and with SNMP Tester from Paessler.

Is there a way to choose which interfaces to monitor BEFORE starting the polling. Now it will include 1000 vlans which I cannot be bothered with...

Regards Andreas

you can limit the range of the scan in the "SNMP Compatibility Options" on the "Settings"-Tab of the parent device/group: http://www.abload.de/img/screenshot2bxw5.png
