OID of throughput value of each interface

L3 Networker

I've seen several posts that asking the same question, but none of them have provided substantial suggestion. Many replies just suggest to use existing templates of Cacti or Zabbix. What if I'm not using those 2 monitoring tools?

PA has published an OID list on https://knowledgebase.paloaltonetworks.com/KCSArticleDetail?id=kA10g000000ClaSCAS

However, they has never mentioned about throughput, I don't think that value is a secret at all.

Are you hoping to monitor SNMP on a different system? Because if you configure a QoS profile on the interface you want to see data for, it will give you a throughput graph. Given, it won't have historical data, but, you are able to see it there at least.

You can always just do a MIB walk, but I honestly don't think this value is present in the MIB. You would be looking for ifInOctets and ifOutOctets. If memory serves correctly that's the only way to grab this through SNMP. 

Hello Slick,

I've created a QoS profile and able to monitor the throughput by GUI. However, my target is to *export* that value to monitoring software, such as Nagios Core.

Hello BPry,

I've used Paessler SNMP Tester to run a MIB walk. By examining through naked eye, I can't find any value related to throughput, just like what you've said it seems that not exist in the MIB.

About " ifInOctets" and "ifOutOctets". It seems that their corresponding OID are "" and "". However, my target interfaces have this value "0" in the walk result list.

I'm surprised by someone who manage to did that through Cacti. Please take a look at https://live.paloaltonetworks.com/t5/automation-api-discussions/cacti-templates/td-p/7457?tstart=0

I've checked the downloadable xml files that are provided by the author. As expected, it relies on OID too, but sadly, I still can't find the correct one.

This is way late in the thread, but for future drive-bys this article may explain the 0s -> https://knowledgebase.paloaltonetworks.com/KCSArticleDetail?id=kA14u000000HCchCAG&lang=en_US%E2%80%A....
