using standard SNMP sensor bandwidth/traffic monitor, any vlan interface shows zero traffic (both in and out) I tried different vendors: Cisco Nexus and Brocade SX800 In CLI (Cisco) these fields are populated and counters are incresing:

FRDAT1-10-SW4# sh interface vlan 218 counters detailed all
   0.                 l3_routed_bytes_in = 683254533680278
   1.                  l3_routed_pkts_in = 1920058755727
   2.                l3_routed_bytes_out = 787053767356995
   3.                 l3_routed_pkts_out = 1440346411086
FRDAT1-10-SW4# sh interface vlan 218 counters detailed all
   0.                 l3_routed_bytes_in = 683260861235939
   1.                  l3_routed_pkts_in = 1920069862775
   2.                l3_routed_bytes_out = 787061859337962
   3.                 l3_routed_pkts_out = 1440364572451
FRDAT1-10-SW4# sh interface vlan 218 counters detailed all
   0.                 l3_routed_bytes_in = 683264749177345
   1.                  l3_routed_pkts_in = 1920073753872
   2.                l3_routed_bytes_out = 787067309303188
   3.                 l3_routed_pkts_out = 1440370570222

There are any special MIB? I didn't found nothing.. I assume it's a common needs for network administrators, so do you have even heard of that before?

thanks,

Gianluca

Dear gianluca bona

I personally have not heard of this specific case before. We don't have any VLAN MIBs, or any specific MIB at all to provide. Please contact Cisco about the SNMP MIB files for this device.
