If your using the OID you don't need to use the MIB name.

Here is the text from the reference.html file...

Load the MIB file(s) specified and make its OIDs available as symbolic
names. For better efficiency, a cache of MIBs is maintained in the WorkDir.

So ditch the 'LoadMib:' parameter or use the name associated with the OID in
the Target...

Target[device]: MyMibName.instance&MyMibName.instance:CommunityString at device

Have you done an SNMP walk on the OID you gave below to see what it returns?
As this should be done before any config is made to make sure the device
understands the OID.

Subject: [mrtg] LoadMIB:


So I am having trouble getting a Cisco MIB/OID to work. Tell me if I am

Both ends of the IP Sec tunnel are Cisco routers
Ciscos website tells me they both support IPSec-Flow and IPEncrption MIBS
I complied both mibs
I add the following line into my config:
then I add the OID to the targets where the last octect (.11) is the
interface of the tunnel on the router

Run the config, no problems.. But it tells me no traffic. I have MRTG
polling the tunnel interface and it records that it sees traffic going down
the tunnel.. Thoughts?
