I've implemented SNMP and a custom embedded device, and trying to set up PRTG to monitor it.
When I load my MIB file through an SNMP Library sensor, all my string OIDs get created with separate SNMP Custom String sensors, and my numeric OIDs get grouped under their parent OID as SNMP Custom Advanced sensors (see https://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg/snmp_library_sensor). There are a couple of items I'd like to change in this setup if possible, but I don't see how to do this.
1. The Custom Advanced sensor always gets the MIB Module name prepended to the sensor name (this does not happen for the Custom String sensor). I'd like to not include the module name, and just have the OID name from the MIB file.
2. If there is only 1 numeric OID under a group, I'd like to simply use an SNMP Custom sensor (removing the extra group level)
3. If I have both string and numeric OIDs under a common group, I'd like them to all be grouped together as channels under the same sensor. As far as I can tell, this is only possible for numeric values and not string values.
All my OIDs are simple scalar values - no tables or sequences at the moment. I'm relatively new to implementing SNMP, so if there's something I should change about my implementation or my MIB file, I'm open to it.
