Custom Poller : Track a node group for Interfaces DiscardsOut

Dear all,

 

I used the built-in MIB Expression ifOutDiscards (com.hp.nms.mibexpr.ifoutdiscards) based on the RFC1213 to poll automatically a node group and track down if some interfaces are generating discards.

 

OID : .1.3.6.1.2.1.2.2.1.19

 

When  I use the expression against a node via Action > Graph MIB Expression, I can successfully see some interfaces generating discards (Screenshot2241.jpg)

 

I created then a custome poller collection and define some tresholds in it (see attachment Screenshot2247.jpg).

 

Finally I created a customer poller policy (see attachment Screenshot2248.jpg)

 

When I launch the collection of data I get always the same error (Screenshot2250.jpg)

 

Using the MIB Browser I can successfully interrogate these values (Screenshot2261.jpg)

 

I don't get why this is not working, maybe I did a mistake in the custom poller configuration...

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated... :-)

 

Thanks

  • Hello, I assume you defined a filter for the collection.
    If you did, you probably used a counter. A counter is not valid for filtering . It would make more sense to filter on a configured value. Changing the filter variable to something that does not have a COUNTER in the MIB should work....
    Hope this helps
  • Hi,

     

    Thanks for your message, I'm not sure to get your point...

     

    When I try to change the filter on a higher MIB it doesn't accept, buzt maybe if you can post quickly a screenshot that could help me to get your point :-)

     

    thank you

    Hi

     

    The "mib filter variable" should be something like the "ifIndex" if you want to collect interface metrix and filter on a given set of interfaces.

     

    Assume you want to collect on interfaces on the index 1-10; then you would define the "mib filter variable" to be "ifIndex" and the "mib filter" value to be "1-10".

     

    If you need to filter using a different criteria such as ifName or ifAlias etc, then you would use that as filter value and then use string (pattern matching) to define the filter values.
