The device is reporting that it doesn't have the data you asked for.

The device is reporting that it hears you.
In either case, the device is reporting something and so,
implicitly, that it is alive. The two reports are consistent.
There is probably some difference, either in capabability or in
configuration, between the devices for which you are seeing graphs
and the others. As a result, some populate (and/or expose) the MIB
to include the OID you are requesting, the others don't.
Without knowing more about your devices, it's difficult to say more.
You can dump the entire populated part of the MIB using snmpwalk, by
specifying "." as the OID.
I hope this helps.
