Hi sanghera,

Thank you very much for your question.

The easiest approach is to deploy a SNMP Custom and enter the OID while the sensor creation.

According to this site it appears that the provided value is expanded 100 times.

hwEntityOpticalRxPower 1.3.6.1.4.1.2011.5.25.31.1.1.3.1.8
The receive power of the optical module. Unit: dBm. the value is expanded 100 times, so the real value should be reduced 100 times

The division of 100 can be configured in the Settings tab of the created sensor afterwards.

Best regards,
Sebastian
