We are trying MRTG against the above and have struck a little trouble that I hope you may be able to help with. I have a conf file that seems to be gathering interface stats but I am seeing the output below. 

SNMP Error:
Received SNMP response with error code
  error status: noSuchName
  index 1 (OID:
SNMPv1_Session (remote host: "" [].161)
                  community: "public"
                 request ID: 273093819
                PDU bufsize: 8000 bytes
                    timeout: 2s
                    retries: 5
                    backoff: 1)
SNMPGET Problem for ifInOctets.8 ifOutOctets.8 on public at
WARNING: Expected a number but got ''
WARNING: Expected a number but got ''

Walking the mib I see the following output for the interface counter:

I think the .'................' on the end of the OID is causing some trouble with the snmpget, I anyone using MRTG with SAN switches? can you suggest a conf directive that will ignore this?

Any help wouyld be greatly appreciated.
