Hello Great minds,

Kindly assist.

I would want to monitor APC PDU Model AP8853 for OID

When I run the paessler SNMP tester v5.2.3 i get readout 6/8/2018 1:42:19 PM (27 ms) : SNMP V1 6/8/2018 1:42:19 PM (36 ms) : Walk 6/8/2018 1:42:19 PM (55 ms) : = "2" [ASN_INTEGER] 6/8/2018 1:42:19 PM (75 ms) : = "2" [ASN_INTEGER]

However when I try adding SNMP custom sensor, I get #N SNMP_EXCEPTION_NOSUCHINSTANCE223.

Any ideas?

Hi there,

When adding the sensor you need to enter the full OIDs ( &, then it should work.

Kind regards,
