I am attempting to monitor all of my switch ports for input/output errors via RMON probes that will send a trap to my HP OpenView box if the threshold is reached. I'm having trouble with the MIB, according to Cisco doc, the switches should be using the IF-MIB, in which ifInErrors should be a valid OID, so my command is:
rmon alarm 2 ifInErrors.2 10 delta rising-threshold 5 1 falling-threshold 10000 owner config
This should monitor Fa0/1 on a 3548 switch....I receive the error:
Unknown object: ifInErrors.2
I can run a MIB browser and ifInErrors.<interface-index> shows up with the correct values for the input errors, but the switches will not take the command. When I telnet to the switch and run "show snmp mib | inc ifInError" nothing shows up (it does on the switches that work). I have also tried putting in the OID .184.108.40.206.220.127.116.11.1.14.2 with the same result.
My guess is that this is an IOS error since my switches with a newer IOS are working fine....what is throwing me is that I have Cacti and Cricket monitoring these switches and they are graphing the errors fine.
Any ideas would be appreciated....thanks.
