her is the output:
term$ snmpget -v1 -c public .
enterprises.ucdavis.memory.memAvailReal.0 = -1

the same thing with localhost.

same as before... 
this is weird since i also graph a unix harddrive on another machine
with 10 GB and it shows it perfectly. I guess i have to check in some
other places. it doesnt make much sense though....There must be more
people out there monitoring 4GB ram with snmp.

Anyway, thanks for the help.

Just out of interest are you using the "numbered" OID or the names as
outlined above? I believe if you want to use the "memory.memAvailReal.0"

syntax then you have to use the "LoadMIB" directive (I could be wrong).
happens if you try an snmpget?

pc-linux% snmpget -v1 -c public .
UCD-SNMP-MIB::memAvailReal.0 = INTEGER: 1308
(Don't laugh, that's 1MB of free memory!!)

I am using MRTG/RRDTool to graph free space on my XP desktop hard drives
is 40GB and the other is 60GB) and these graph without any hassles.
