SNMP get-next request

I have a question about possibiility of generating SNMP get-next request by SNMP Custom Sensor. I'm monitoring HP P2000 G3 disk arrays and there is for example "unit status" parameter, which shows status of the device. I've created SNMP custom sensor with proper OID, but I figured out, that to get the value from the device I need to ask for the next OID (get-next request, not get directly). My old monitoring tool had such possibility to make get-next request - is that possible in PRTG as well?

Best Regards Marcin

Dear marcink137

This is not possible with PRTG. What is the OID in question?

Thank you for your response.

For example the OID 1.3.6.1.3.94.1.6.1.6 is problematic. Every device requires different "suffix", which is to read only with get-next request.

Dear Marcin

I am sorry, PRTG has no sensors with this capability. As a workaround, you might want to use Net-SNMP and write a custom script, performing SNMP queries through Net-SNMP.
