[mrtg] FW: MIB query (re HP/Nortel Blade switches )...

Might be able to use both OIDs in the oid_pick in case either works:


my($hpoid) =



Its possible as well that the HP MIB doesn't use $ifindex as the suffix but
some other index of their own, which would be a nuisance.


As someone else suggested, using --ifref=name --ifdesc=name as options is
also a good idea; my rough script just grabbed the default identifier to use
if it can't find an HP one.

Try changing the OID in the template to

sample of output.


I have the same switched and when I do an snmpwalk to this oid I get the

[root at mrtg ~]# snmpwalk -v 2c -c da1sy blswr7e5a
SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises. = STRING: "Blade
Server 751"
SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises. = STRING:



Hope this helps. I have not looked at the template yet but will look as it
as time permits.
