Hello,


I am looking to gather network traffic using SNMP. The data I am really interested in is bits per second, the show interface summary command. I have figured out how to get ifIn/OutOctet using SNMP however I really want bits per second. Anyone have any ideas on what if I can use?

have you tried MRTG tool? I think it can show performance stats the way you want it.

OK. Is this tool part of a suite? I am on a system where I dont have much play with it. I am looking to use a snmpwalk against a MIB. Any information on that?

well, snmpwalk is not the best tool. for mrtg you need perl. google MRTG and you will see what it can do.

Otherwise look at this OUI:

locIfOutBitsSec


Provides a weighted 5-minute exponentially decaying average of interface output bits per second for the specific protocol.



Syntax: Integer


Access: Read-only



and this:


locIfInBitsSec


Provides a weighted 5-minute exponentially decaying average of interface input bits per second.


Syntax: Integer


Access: Read-only
