Has nobody here come across this before? I can't understand why, when polled, the bandwidth results returned are incorrect? I'm guessing that that the returned values are that calculated by NPM, rather than actual connected value (i.e. that displayed under the "show dsl int atm0")??? If anybody has any ideas & maybe needs a little more info from me please just ask
Are there any bandwidth statements on the interfaces? We had cases where NPM was retrieving the speed of the Frame Relay interfaces based on this value instead of the physical interface. NPM will use the value of the ifSpeed OID of the ifTable on the device for the interface speed.
I raised this with the technical support and they pointed me to the same KB article, along with another (see below)
Thanks again for your help
We poll the ifSpeed OID to bring back interface bandwidth. We have two KBs you may find of interest on this problem. The first explains why this value is wrong,
We also have a KB which details how we calculate the interface bandwidth,
http://knowledgebase.solarwinds.com/kb/questions/2672/How+does+NPM+calculate+interface+bandwidth%3F+What+conversion+factors+are+used%3F which may also be of interest.
Unfortunately this all means that the interfaces you mention will need to be set with a custom bandwidth to correct the values.
