No such object (SNPM error #222)




trying to get top talkers information from Cisco router over snmp, so i could graph IPs who use most bandwidth.


Object cnfTopFlowsTable OID Type SEQUENCE Permission not-accessible Status current

When i create a custom sensor, i get "no such object (SNPM error #222), same thing with SNMP tester. But when i list all available OIDs with snmpwalk tool, i get results for many and many values inside of

What am i doing wrong, or maybe the same thing can be achieved differently? Thank you!

It is highly likely that the issue has to do with index values missing at the end of the OID. Could you please run a "Walk" test using our SNMP Tester v5 Beta and forward us the resulting log file to [email protected]. Please refer to this thread in order to be able to associate the case.

This, indeed, has to do with the index values missing for the OID in case. If you add a SNMP Custom sensor for one of the complete OID entries in the walk, for exapmple, you should be able to add a sensor. Using will not work, as this does not explicitly point at a single counter and PRTG does not walk the OID to add the indeces in case.
