Ajay, let me say first that when you do not get an answer on this
forum, it is usually because no one knows the answer. This forum is
for customers to help each other, it is not an official avenue of support.

There are limits to how snmpCollect deals with multi-part instance
identifiers, but I do not know offhand if what you are seeing is correct or
not. You may need to call Support. There are probably a couple of
workarounds. Perhaps the information is stored but not displayed. In
that case you could retrieve it with snmpColdump.  Or the MLM , which
comes free with Netview, can also do data collection and has different
capabilites. So that might be the way to go. And sometimes a mib expression
works better. For instance, a different mib expression for each instance
would
allow you to give each a different name. That would probably be a
cumbersome and inefficient approach.

So if no one answers here, as always ask Support. If their answer is
unacceptable, study up on the MLM. That is my advice.

Consider also that if you can ping the thing, the circuit must be up.
Many people do their up-time reporting based on reachability.

Cordially,

HI All,
I have got no reply on my previous query posted on 24th july, Request you
all to please help me on this. Please let me know If some further info is
required on this. This data collection is used for making FR Circuit UP
time report.  Is there any other way to know  Fr Circuit UP time?

Query which was raised is attached below for the reference.

Look forward to hear this time. Thanking you all in advance.

With Best Regards

Subject:  [NV-L] frame relay frCircuitstate data collection  (Document
      link: Ajay Sachdeva)

Hi all,
we are collecting the data for frCircuitstate MIB variable which gives
Virtual circuits status as active or inactive. We have four virtual
circuits which are configured as four sub- interfaces on the router . Now
when we use MIB browser to see frCircuitstate values it shows
Instance  Value
4.77      active
4.90      active
4.100          active
4.600          active

which is perfectly OK

But when we try to see the collected data using collect data option we see
only 4 as instance number for all four circuits. Ideally it should show
instance number as 4.77, 4.90,4.100 and 4.600 so that we can identify that
for which circuit this value corresponds to.

Seek for your kind help on this. Thanking you all in advance.

With Best Regards
