What are the snmp strings for flash and nvram?

When I do a show ver I get the following

cisco 2507 (68030) processor (revision K) with 6144K/2048K bytes of memory.

Processor board ID 10358834, with hardware revision 00000000

Bridging software.

SuperLAT software copyright 1990 by Meridian Technology Corp).

X.25 software, Version 2.0, NET2, BFE and GOSIP compliant.

TN3270 Emulation software.

1 Ethernet/IEEE 802.3 interface(s)

16 Ethernet/IEEE 802.3 repeater port(s)

2 Serial network interface(s)

32K bytes of non-volatile configuration memory.

8192K bytes of processor board System flash (Read ONLY)

This tells me that I have 6144/2048 roughly 8M of nvram and 8192 of flash. I look in the Cisco snmp mib and I cannot find this exact reference. I have found for flash and have found for nvram however the numbers do not line up. Is there something that I am missing. In the above example, the following is returned nvram 6120044 and flash is 8388608. If these are correct, what does the router do to change the numbers

Re: What are the snmp strings for flash and nvram?


I show for flashcopy and that has alot of entries under it...

Are you trying to determine which entry covers the amount of nvram and flash?

If so, try ciscoFlashDeviceSize - Readonly integer

For nvram: try

nvRAMSize - Readonly integer

Also if you have further questions on which OID to use try ... Outstanding site.
