How do I know what this one is tracking.  It shows me a number that
looks comparable to the number of users logged into the modem bank.

Look in the contrib directory for the TCH programs. This will be your
best bet. I don't know what the .429 USRobotics .4 Common, beyond that
everyone is stuck. I've been trying to get the rest of the information
from them for about a year. The mib file only goes this far.

Actual active lines need to be looked at individually to see what the
actual case is with each line. The contrib directory should contain
everything that you need.

If this OID is returning what you want, the nyou can use it as both. It
will give you a solid green with a blue line along the top edge.
