Trying to read out Cisco IOS version and hardware model fails



I'm trying to read out Cisco IOS version and hardware model but it's failing also after upgrading PRTG network monitor to the latest version

I'm using the snmp custom sensor and OID value

The result I get is ''Cisco IOS Software, 3800 Software (C3825-SPSERVICESK9-M), Version 15.0(1)M3, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc2) Technical Support: http://www.cisco.com/techsupport Copyright (c) 1986-2010 by Cisco Systems, Inc. Compiled Sun 18-Jul-10 05:11 by prod_rel_team'' is not a valid integer value

What I'm doing wrong?

Many thanks in advance for your guidance.

as this is a string "value", please use the SNMP Custom String Sensor instead to monitor it.

best regards.

Do you know what the regular expression would be to extract the version #?

I tried this but it did not work: \b(Version)([^,]+)

PRTG can only extract scalar values because each sensor channel contains a numeric value. Please check your regex with an online tester which parts of the strings are matched.
