No such object (SNMP error # 222)



I set up a SNMP in my linux device. So to test that the snmp is working, I set up a snmp system uptime and it works. So my problem is after I set up the SNMP linux load average. I got this "No such object (SNMP error # 222)". What is the cause of this error? Is it the wrong OID? Need help. Thanks

error#222 linux snmp

Hey danpaolosoriano,

thank's for posting this question. We've got a similar question in 2011. Maybe this is the answer for your question.


If not, it could be that this oid doesn't exist. You can check this with the Paessler SNMP tester ( https://www.de.paessler.com/tools/snmptester ).

Maybe it's helpful for you.

I finally set up a snmp library sensor and I did all in this article https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/29403-monitoring-processes-in-linux

The process I monitor is <firefox>

but when I close my firefox, my process count,error flag,index sensor seems ok. It should be error right?

sorry for hijacking this thread. :) @danpaolosoriano: No, there will be no error. The SNMP counters are just fine even when the process is not running. What happens when the process is not running is, the process count will return 0 as value so you might just set a lower error limit in the sensor channel settings here to get an error.
