Custom SNMP Sensor reporting wrong values



I have created a custom SNMP Sensor and its reporting wrong Values (see Table).

Correct ValuesSNMP TesterPRTG

I have recreated the sensor multible times. Restartet PRTG Host (Windows Server 2016) and Target Host(Debain 9). Why are all values wrong except the smalles one?

We're currently having a overflow bug within the SNMP Custom (Advanced) Sensor - is that the one you're using? If so, kindly check if a SNMP Custom Sensor reads the values correctly and use that one in the meantime.

Kind regards,

Yes Im using the SNMP Custom Advanced Sensor. I've vertified the last vew days that the SNMP Custom Sensor is not Affected!

Is there a Bugtracker?

Thank you!

We do have a bugtracker, but it's only for internal use. The issue is currently in the review process. Keep an eye on https://www.paessler.com/prtg/history/stable to see when it's fixed. As of right now, the SNMP Custom sensor is the only workaround.

Kind regards,
