Unanswered Question

does anybody know if an ios router can send traps if interface level rate-limit thresholds are exceeded?

Many thanks in advance,


I have this problem too.

Because of your recommendation I assume that the normal snmp agent does not include support for the rate-limit feature (like the normal "snmp-server enable traps " commands).

Do you perhaps know where I can find the OIDs or variable names for the below shown conformed and exceeded packet and byte counter so that we can monitor them with our nms?


router#sh int gi0/1 rate-limit



matches: access-group 110

params: 3000000 bps, 10000 limit, 10000 extended limit

conformed 5965M packets, 394170M bytes; action: transmit

exceeded 48678137 packets, 3191M bytes; action: drop

last packet: 4ms ago, current burst: 60 bytes

last cleared 1y24w ago, conformed 68000 bps, exceeded 0 bps

matches: access-group 111

params: 200000 bps, 4470 limit, 4470 extended limit

conformed 2600780 packets, 304394096 bytes; action: transmit

exceeded 1545 packets, 206378 bytes; action: drop

last packet: 512417216ms ago, current burst: 0 bytes

last cleared 1y24w ago, conformed 0 bps, exceeded 0 bps
