Mimosa SNMP Custom Sensor



Hi I am working with a WISP to monitor their backhauls on a private network using a PRTG instance. We are mostly working with mimosa products for the backhauls, our goal is to have an alert notify us if the traffic on one of these backhaul links drops below a certain threshold. I know we can monitor the TX and RX rate of the wireless link using the OIDs provided by mimosa (TX (RX but I can't seem to get my values to display correctly let alone notify us when it drops below the threshold.

Any ideas?

Best regards

Hello, what values are showing? Can you use our SNMP tester https://www.paessler.com/tools/snmptester and check if the PRTG is showing the same values the device is sending?

Hi Jonathan, thanks for the reply the device was sending the values with an offset of around 30 seconds even with the scanning interval of 10 seconds.

I believe its all sorted out now that we know that the values are delayed by around 30 seconds

Thank you and best regards Jameson
