    • Type: Enhancement
    • Status: Closed (View Workflow)
    • Priority: Minor
    • Resolution: Fixed
    • Affects Version/s: 1.12.2
    • Fix Version/s: 1.12.3
    • Component/s: Data Collection - SNMP
    • Security Level: Default (Default Security Scheme)
    • Labels:
      None

      Description

      Currently the default SNMP data collection configuration omits the following columns for the ifXTable:

      ifHCInUcastPkts
      ifHCInMulticastPkts
      ifHCInBroadcastPkts
      ifHCOutUcastPkts
      ifHCOutMulticastPkts
      ifHCOutBroadcastPkts

      As a result, the following default resource graphs get drawn using the (counter-wrap-prone) 32-bit versions of these counters:

      mib2.percentdiscards
      mib2.percenterrors
      mib2.packets

      We should be collecting these counters (as a separate group to avoid breaking systems with store-by-group persisting turned on) and using them in high-capacity versions of the graphs above.
