    Question about UnDP data

    bleearg13

      I have a poller set up to grab some SNMP data from our BIND9 servers that show successful DNS queries, failures, etc.  I previously had this set up in Cacti and I'm trying to move away from that app now that the UnDP exists for Orion.  I'm having a problem, though, when I compare the results in the Cacti graph to the results in the Orion graph.  The OID I'm polling is actually a custom OID, meaning, it is one that is inserted into the MIB structure via a script that runs on the DNS server.  It inserts data received from running the 'rndc stats' program on each of our servers.  Here's the structure from the script that creates it:

       

      # .1.3.6.1.4.1.2021.55.1 = Indexes
      # .1.3.6.1.4.1.2021.55.2 = Names
      # .1.3.6.1.4.1.2021.55.3 = Succesful query count
      # .1.3.6.1.4.1.2021.55.4 = Failed query count
      # .1.3.6.1.4.1.2021.55.5 = NXDOMAIN query count
      # .1.3.6.1.4.1.2021.55.6 = NXRRSET query count
      # .1.3.6.1.4.1.2021.55.7 = Referred query count
      # .1.3.6.1.4.1.2021.55.8 = Recursive query count
      #
      # To get the global name server stats you would consult the following oids
      #
      # .1.3.6.1.4.1.2021.55.1.1 = INTEGER: 1
      # .1.3.6.1.4.1.2021.55.2.1 = STRING: GLOBAL
      # .1.3.6.1.4.1.2021.55.3.1 = INTEGER: 0
      # .1.3.6.1.4.1.2021.55.4.1 = INTEGER: 0
      # .1.3.6.1.4.1.2021.55.5.1 = INTEGER: 0
      # .1.3.6.1.4.1.2021.55.6.1 = INTEGER: 0
      # .1.3.6.1.4.1.2021.55.7.1 = INTEGER: 0
      # .1.3.6.1.4.1.2021.55.8.1 = INTEGER: 0


      Since these are all INTEGER OIDs, it looks like the UnDP sets up the poller as a Rate poller.  The problem is, it doesn't seem to work right.  Take a look at the two graphs side-by-side and you'll see a big difference in what they're each telling me.
