whats wrong on my SNMP Modular Input ?

New Member

I have build with a lot of work a (mib).py and placed it in .../mibs

browsing a "random"/filled entry/point of MIB Ill get followingLog-Entry:
NETAPP-MIB::productVersion."" = "No Such Instance currently exists at this OID"

OID is copy+pasted from an Mib-Browser, wich shows me correct values if im polling the system.
How can i assure that the Modular Input really connects ?

My has following header-info:

PySNMP SMI module. Autogenerated from smidump -f python NETAPP-MIB

by libsmi2pysnmp-0.1.3 at Wed Sep 25 15:29:08 2013,

Python version sys.version_info(major=2, minor=7, micro=3, releaselevel='final', serial=0)

MIB Object in is:
if mibBuilder.loadTexts: productVersion.setDescription("Version String for the Software Running on\nthis platform.")
productId = MibScalar((1, 3, 6, 1, 4, 1, 789, 1, 1, 3), DisplayString()).setMaxAccess("readonly")

OID machtes to Modular input:

i dont find anything wrong 😞

You have a custom NETAPP MIB that you have converted to a python module called

You have placed this in the snmp_ta/bin/mibs directory

Have you also specified to use this MIB in your SNMP Input stanza definition ?

Example :
