How is this normally done? Well, I hesitate to say this, but I
doubt that this is normally done. You are fighting every design
feature of the data collection capabilites of the product. It might
be easier for you to just use cron to run a script that retrieves
the data. You could use the snmpget command, or, better yet, the
mibtable command. See the man pages for those.

Anybody else doing this?

Subject:  [NV-L] How do I set my own collect time [SnmpCollect ]

I want to only get stats from my network devices at specified times of the
for historical stats.  I dont want to use the "interval" setting of


Say for example I only want data from   --  6am ,8am,  12pm , 6pm

Thats it!!! But it must be at 6am , 8am, 12pm, and 6pm not every whatever
of hours.

How is this noramlly done.

I started writing a script to run from cron that starts the daemon
at the times above then kill the daemon after I think it should be

Even when you run the daemon manually it knows the last time it collected
so my theory of setting the "interval" to 3h then trying to force a
did not work.
Maybe there is a cahce file I could delete our an entry in the database i
wack before I start the daemon.

There must be a better way!!!
