Linux 3.0.0-1-686-pae #1 SMP Sat Aug 27 16:41:03 UTC 2011 i686 GNU/Linux
snmpd 5.4.3~dfsg-2.3
zenoss-stack 3.2.1-0

I have installed Debian Testing, Zenoss and smpd on the same server. I am having a hell of a time trying to figure out where I am screwing up the snmpd config. Zenoss sees the device, grabs the correct hostname and other values specified in snmpd.conf, yet I am unable to get any memory, cpu, load etc graphed. They all display 'nan' -- Which Im assuming means I have something wrong.

If I model the device I do get some warnings like:

2011-10-21 08:39:44,898 WARNING zen.ZenModeler: Unable to get data for localhost from either ipAddrTable or ipNetToMediaTable
2011-10-21 08:39:44,902 WARNING zen.ZenModeler: No process information from hrSWRunEntry .

/etc/default/snmpd /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf Zenoss Errors

Any help would be great.

Are you using public as the community, or? – Zoredache Oct 21 '11 at 16:16
Yes, I am using public as the community. My community in Zenoss is set to public and its defined in the config, so I think that part should be fine. – Justin S Oct 21 '11 at 17:36

Since you are connecting with the public commit you are limited to only the mibs define by systemonly. You may want to remove the -V systemonly bit.

I also had to add this to the default file. export MIBS=UCD-SNMP-MIB – Justin S Oct 21 '11 at 19:46
