There is a cfgmaker generic host template available at http://www.steveshipway.org/forum/ in the templates library that will add Targets for memory and storage devices.  You might like to try using this?

Subject: [mrtg] Win XP searching OID for used memory


I m a beginner using mrtg and snmp.
My problem:
I want to display informarions about RAM.

I found this one
susecl01:~ # snmpwalk 192.168.xxx.xxx -v1 -Cc -c public|grep Memory
HOST-RESOURCES-MIB::hrMemorySize.0 = INTEGER: 3668196 KBytes
HOST-RESOURCES-MIB::hrStorageType.4 = OID:
HOST-RESOURCES-MIB::hrStorageDescr.4 = STRING: Virtual Memory
HOST-RESOURCES-MIB::hrStorageDescr.5 = STRING: Physical Memory
but I looking for a second OID for the used RAM.
Using a general snmpwalk for finding used Ram (the value) but  I can't
find a result.

http://www.mibdepot.com shows me some results but nothing is working.
http://snmpboy.msft.net/pub/mrtg.cfg.txt says that it should be possible )-:

I ve similar problems monitoring disks.
It seems as if some OIDs are missing.

Any hints?
