Logging value from SNMP library lookup

I am monitoring our Server room with a APC Netbotz 450 and have imported the mib file into PRTG. I would like to see a history of the temperature and humidity but only response time and downtime is shown when looking the the sensor. The lookup is only displaying the last value of the lookup. Is this possible?

I wrote you an email in order to send us the MIB file to take a look at it.

Kind regards.

Afternoon,

I have the same Netbotz device and I am currently deploying PRTG. I too cannot seem to get any useful information from the APC into PRTG. Was there ever solution for this?

using the mib file, the temprature/humidity sensors are imported in as custom string. I used the OID from these to create snmp sensors (not string) and everything is working now.

Yes, that was it, as Adam pointed out. It is possible to monitor the device using the MIB combined with an SNMP Library Sensor for example or an SNMP Custom Advanced Sensor which is also capable of monitoring several metrics in different channels.

In case you need assistance with specific details, please let us know.

Kind regards.

All good thanks. This is now working as I'd hoped.

Next challenge is ESXi monitoring. Information seems to be scattered around and nothing specifically related. If I get stuck I post another thread. Thanks for the assistance with the Netbotz.
