SNMP v2 CPU & Memory polling - Solarwinds

Using standard SNMP polling via Solarwinds, I'm unable to pull back CPU or Memory usage from our range of Extreme devices. 

I'm aware that I can create custom pollers to satisfy this requirement, but would be interested to understand why this needs to be the case? 

If it's a case of that's just how Extreme design their devices, then happy enough with that.
Should that be the situation, it would be great to get some sight of the various OIDs / MIB detail across the OS's to be able to fully cover these elements.

If these are available somewhere, I'd appreciate a link or pointer.

Thanks in advance,
Daniel

Daniel,

Have you checked this post?

Several OIDs are mentioned there...

You can confirm this OID using the a MIB Browser, such as the one made by iReasoning.  By loading the MIB file for the specific EXOS version which is running on switch, you can search for different OIDs/fields of interest. Mentioned the switch IP address in ireasoning.  See below



You can also pull the information up, based on a table form to view the memory statistics per slot:



Let us know if you need any more information about this.

Hi Daniel (great name btw), Sumit,

Thanks for the prompt responses, I had seen the other thread, thanks - I notice the MIBS seem to be specific to ExtremeXOS though? 

I'll def check out the iReasoning MIB browser & see what I can find.

My main query was to see if I could get some information regards why this is the case? As mentioned, if that's just "how it is" then fair enough, if not, would be great to know more :)

Sumit - I referenced the OIDs you listed over on the Solarwinds Thwack boards, see this post - https://thwack.solarwinds.com/message/211129

Cheers,
Daniel

I believe you are testing those OID on switch which has EXOS 12.1 software. I am not sure if those OID would give you the correct output in that software.

It would be advisable to test those OID with latest software(  EXOS 12.5 and above).

I can also see similar type of O/P using the net SNMP s/w. You could  use URL "http://www.net-snmp.org/" in order to download this software and test it.
