Error with SNMP OID Values




I want to get the "Interface throughput in Mbps" values by using snmp oid values to our prtg server from netscaler appliances.

When I used the value below, it gave me "#N SNMP_EXCEPTION_NOSUCHINSTANCE223" error.


OID: Interface throughput in Mbps""""

I believe I need to add some interface indexes after the OID value, but I'm not sure how to check the indexes that is specific for the interfaces.

For example in Cisco, we use command below to check the interface index;

"""show snmp mib ifmib ifindex""""

Do you think that is the case, or am I missing something else ? Could you help me?

Thanks şn advance, you are awesome !

I'm using these OID below with no problem;

Sensor Names OID Values

CPU Usage

Memory Usage

Current TCP Client Connections

Hi there,

Please note that is only the first part of the SNMP OID. If you don't use the SNMP Table Sensor, you will need the SNMP OID + index number. You can compere this to an address (Street name + house number): is the street name
.INDEXNUMBER is the house number

You need the index number when you use a SNMP Custom or SNMP Custom Advanced Sensor. You can get the index number by query the table via the SNMP Tester.
