SNMP Traffic Monitoring for Cisco Tunnel Interface



Hello, I would like to ask why my SNMP traffic sensors for cisco tunnel interface changed sometimes. For example, I have added a sensor monitoring interface tunnel 84. However, I have found that sometimes, the sensor would be monitoring interface tunnel 85 later on. Could you please give me some solutions? I would like to the snmp traffic sensor monitoring the same tunnel interface.

Thanks a lot.
