How can I monitor System Memory I/O (read/write rate)



The normal SNMP Memory sensor offers only the memory usage. But we need for analysis the I/O Rate of the memory.

Hello there,

SNMP Memory sensor is using OIDs coming from HOST-RESOURCES-MIB, which does not have such counters.

On a Windows device maybe WMI Vital System Data Sensor might provide what you're looking for.

Kind regards,
