Each MIB provides access to different sensor data. Depending on the device 1 or both mibs may be supported.
The Cisco SNMP object navigator is a useful reference.
CISCO-ENTITY-SENSOR-MIB entitySensorValueTable 188.8.131.52.184.108.40.206.220.127.116.11
This table contains values for the entities, plus their type.

The setting can be applied globally or per node.
For Global Changes
- Log on to web console
- Open Settings
- Open Polling Settings
- Look for section Hardware health Polling
- Change "Preferred Cisco MIB" setting to your preferred choice:
- CISCO-ENTITY-SENSOR-MIB (default) - usually good choice for newer models, some models might have very limited support of this MIB which results that very small amount of sensors is polled with this MIB
- CISCO-ENVMON-MIB - usually well supported by older devices, There is far less issues with this MIB, so in case both MIBs are supported and there is issue with CISCO-ENTITY-SENSOR-MIB, switching to this one.
- Submit changes
For Per Node
Per node setting overrides the global setting.
It is possible to adjust the setting just for single node via Edit Node action on Management resource present on Node detail page.
The same thing can be set for multiple nodes at once via Manage Nodes page with Edit Properties action (accessible from Settings page). See pictures below.
Next steps are common:
- On the Edit Node properties page locate the Hardware Health Polling section
- Change the value:
- use global setting - will not use per node setting and instructs Orion to use the global setting for this node
- CISCO-ENTITY-SENSOR-MIB - instructs Orion to try polling sensors using the CISCO-ENTITY-SENSOR-MIB and ignore the global setting
- CISCO-ENVMON-MIB - instructs Orion to try polling sensors using the CISCO-ENVMON-MIB and ignore the global setting
- Submit changes.
Thanks for making this available on thwack. Could you please find other links and update as the ones posted are either blocked or no longer available.
i can't access your screenshot where you change the node properties for the sensors MIB.
And i do not have the setting displayed when editting the node.
Can you post a public screenshot ?
Hi, Tony, thanks for the info.
Can you tell me in what table / field the selected MIB (CISCO-ENTITY-SENSOR-MIB or CISCO-ENVMON-MIB) in the Solarwinds database is being stored at ?
We need that for our automated intake process.
