Hello there,

The Cisco System Health sensor is actually based on metrics defined in the CISCO-ENTITY-SENSOR-MIB and I'm not sure the metrics you're after are defined in this MIB. If in doubt about finding the correct OID, contacting the vendor (Cisco in this case), is usually the best option.

Kind regards,

Erhard

entSensorType 1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.91.1.1.1.1.1 This variable indicates the type of data reported by the entSensorValue. This variable is set by the agent at start-up and the value does not change during operation.

entSensorValue 1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.91.1.1.1.1.4 This variable reports the most recent measurement seen by the sensor. To correctly display or interpret this variable's value, you must also know entSensorType, entSensorScale, and entSensorPrecision. However, you can compare entSensorValue with the threshold values given in entSensorThresholdTable without any semantic knowledge.

there is Oids but when i am testing via tool it returns values with Raw number , nothing seems to be Optical Rx,Tx Power...

Hi,

Yes, it looks very much like those metrics are not defined in the MIB. I would recommend to contact Cisco if there are maybe other OIDs for what you're looking for.

Kind regards,

Erhard
