Adding new snmp library hangs.



I am adding a new snmp library and after I select the oidlib PRTG displays "Preparing sensor settings" and will run for some time before I have to cancel it. The oidlib contains 18 objects.

Hello there,

This is a known issue with too large MIB files. Please refer to this article/workaround. Does it work then?

Best regards,
