I'm running netmrg .16 and it has generally been working great, however I'm been having problems after enabling MPLS on some interfaces. After MPLS is enabled the switch created a new interface and netmrg seems to switch between the new one and the old one. For example
IF-MIBifDescr.234 = STRING TenGigabitEthernet1/1
IF-MIBifDescr.467 = STRING TenGigabitEthernet1/1-mpls layer
I want netmrg to monitor the physical interface, however it seems to switch randomly between monitoring the physical interface and the MPLS layer, which creates havoc on my graphs, as only a small portion is mpls tagged traffic.
Any help would be appreciated.
Would ifName be more unique? If so, you can change your parameters to use this to track your interface instead. If you're doing this a lot you'll probably want to change the interface cache page to use this (although, I think we switched away from it awhile ago b/c of problems with it [i60b1e9fb71]not[/i60b1e9fb71] being unique..).
Thanks, Doug. I modified a couple of interfaces to be tracked via ifIndex, this since is assured to be unique.
You mention changing the interface cache page to do this, how exactly is this accomplished?
