You need to read this value from the left-hand side of the OID name/value pair. So, if you do a GETNEXT operation on cipCardEntry, the last element returned in the resulting varbind will be the index.

Thanks, but the format of indexes seems different from those shown in cmd 'show extended channel x/y statistics' as

csna path xxyy, while by snmp polling the result is x.y.z.

If we need the xxyy directly from snmpget, any suggestion?

The cipCardEntryIndex is not supposed to be the same as the actual physical slot number. Instead, it is an index into the OLD-CISCO-CHASSIS-MIB, and will match cardIndex for this card. That will allow you to map the current channel card back to a chassis card.
