OID to get the traffic rate of the swithes interfaces

#1 Post by salmanJ » Mon May 06, 2019 1:41 am

Hi,

I am using Cacti as SNMP server to poll information from my network switches.
I want to get the graph of traffic passing through the switches interfaces (traffic rate of interfaces). Please confirm the OID to calculate the interfaces traffic rate. Currently I am using OID 1.3.6.1.2.1.31.1.1.1.10

The problem is, I am getting the graph of the physical interfaces through this OID but unable to get the complete graph of LAG interfaces. For LAG interfaces, I am getting breaks in the graph and it is not continuous.

Moreover, my LAG interfaces are bundle of 4x100G interfaces and the traffic rate at any time for these interfaces is not showing above 100G.

Please suggest solution

Regards,
Salman

The OIDs for your lag interface will most likely be specific to your switch vendor. You can normally find these by googling for the MIBs of your model. If you are seeing gaps that may be because you are monitoring the physical ports individually rather than the cumulative one.
