MIB oid for "show ver" memory info?

Answered Question

Hi guys,


I am trying to use snmp to pull the memory info of the "show ver" output,


e.g.

cisco 1721 (MPC860P) processor (revision 0x200) with 83259K/15045K bytes of memory.


But I just can't find the oid to get this 83259K/15045K, the only thing I can find till now is the ciscoMemoryPoolEntry, but apparently it is not what I want.


Can anyone here give me a little help?


Thanks a lot!

The sum of ciscoMemoryPoolUsed and ciscoMemoryPoolFree for the I/O pool should give you the exact value here.

There is really no objects that will give you the actual amount of real RAM installed in a device. Summing up the memory pool objects is the way to go. There is an old object which may give you the left hand value, and that is processorRam. However, this object is deprecated, and may not work properly on all platforms.
