Hi there,

Yes there is, first please create one SNMP Custom sensors for each OID. https://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg/snmp_custom_sensor

In order to compare these values, please use a Sensor Factory Sensor. https://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg/sensor_factory_sensor

Please check the section "Define Channels—Formula Calculations" for more information on how to compare the sensor values.

Kind regards,
