Count number results from SNMP walk




I'm wondering if there's a way to count the number of results from an SNMP walk OID. I want to use which returns a list of names of every AP registered to a Cisco WLC. I'm not so interested in the names. I just want to count how many unique items are returned so I can monitor if any APs fail or if any new ones are added without my knowledge.

Thank you.

There is no way to perform a walk in PRTG with the current sensors available. What you would have to do is write a script that could walk that OID then return a result to PRTG in one of the formats that are available through the Custom Sensor API. You can find the API dokumentation under Setup->PRTG API->Custom Sensors.
