You need to use the snmp command snmpwalk to walk through the MIB of a device to know the OID of a particular object. I would suggest getif(runs on windows...use google you can find it). This will give in detail as which OID relates to which object, but it will only describe about that OID it if it has that particular MIB pre-compiled in it. I am not sure whether your device MIB's are pre-compiled in getif or not. So try using use getif to know the OID of what you are looking for, if you cant find it through getif then the only other way i know is to look for it in the  vender documentation. Perhaps others over here can suggest better ways of finding an OID for a particular object.

Best regards

Thanks Venkat, Mcdonald.

I have configured the MRTG graph as per your suggestion and it looks fine now.

For last couple of days I am looking for serveriron oid which can tell me the number of CPUs in the server. Can anyone please point me to the right oid? Can you please let me know the url from where I can get the oid for serveriron?
