Measuring bandwidth (SNMP) at the VLAN level

Measuring bandwidth (SNMP) at the VLAN level

I am a co location provider, and as such, I have multiple customers connected to my edge or aggregation switches, which are HP 2910s. These connect to my core, a 5406zl. I set each customer up in a vlan, and need to measure traffic in and out of the vlan, but intra vlan (and port to port traffic) traffic is ok, as I don't charge for that. When I set up a vlan, I see it in my MIB browser, and it even has an ifOcytetsIn and ifOctetsOut MIB, but the counters never increment. Counters DO increment on trunks.

Is this possible to do?

Re: Measuring bandwidth (SNMP) at the VLAN level

Have you tried using "ProCurve Manager 3.0"
which would give you such data in a neat graphical UI?
Check out :
http://www.procurve.com/products/management/ProCurve_Manager_Plus/overview.htm


meanwhile you may want to check out the etherStats MIB table under RMON mib [iso(1).org(3).dod(6).internet(1).mgmt(2).mib-2(1).rmon(16).statistics(1).etherStatsTable(1)] OR the dot1qPortVlanStatisticsEntry under Q-BRIDGE MIB?
These could possibly meet your needs?

Re: Measuring bandwidth (SNMP) at the VLAN level

Thank you for the information, but the KEY OID that would provide what I need, dot1qPortStatisticsTable (.1.3.6.1.2.1.17.7.1.4.6) is not available on a 5406zl. Is snmpwalk the only way to find a comprehensive list of what is available?

snmpwalk -c public -v2c .1.3.6.1.2.1.17.7.1.4.6

SNMPv2-SMI::mib-2.17.7.1.4.6 = No Such Object available on this agent at this OID
