Hi everyone,

I have an SNMP active switch. I need to monitor in/out traffic to specific

In the interfaces.ifTable.ifEntry section of the MIB, which specific OID's
should I be monitoring?

I'm guessing, that for in and out traffic I should be monitoring:

.ifOutOctets & .ifInOctets correct?

However, what about interfaces:

.ifOutNUcastPkts & .ifInNUcastPkts?

If i monitor traffic for a customer and do not take into consideration the
second two OID's - will I be ripping them off because they'll be charged for
broadcast packets?
