Hi there,

I'm working hard to get the problem solved but I'm at a loss.

I try to set up an alarm for over threshold in the rttMonJitterStatsRTTMax so the command is i.e. "rmon alarm 1 rttMonJitterStatsRTTMax 5 abs r 10 1 f 5 2 owner config"

but I receive an "Alarm creation failure".

I also tried instead of MIB object name the OID (





I get either an alarm creation failure or an unknown object message.


neither works...

Anyone can help?

You need get the specific index value of rttMonJitterStatsRTTMax like shown in the example:


Can you walk the object to see what the specific value is? Then you can use this.

Not really. I only know the snmpwalk method in CLI. But is there any other way I can get the value? Especially if you have console access?
