Finding the OID of a sensor

Is there a way to determine the OID of an SNMP sensor?

That is, we are monitoring the traffic from a firewall and I want to know what OID the sensor is using.

Thanks

Olly

Hello,

you can only check this with Wireshark I'm afraid. As PRTG checks several OIDs for a interface (traffic in/out counters, state, errors, etc.) and these may also change upon configuration-changes of the device, PRTG will not display an OID.

best regards.
