Thread-topic: [nv-l] Collecting data from Mib Expressions
I'm doing just that on some linux servers - running 7.1.4 on Win2k server.
Here is the entry that must be added to mibexpr.conf ....

StorageUtil \
"100* hrstorageused / hrstoragesize" \
        . \
        . / \
        100 *
One can then set up a collection using the snmpcollect GUI which writes to 
Here is a corresponding entry from snmpcol.conf ....

MIB StorageUtil 1 RootStorageUtil units EXPRESSION R senetmon02 C 
linuxserver.mycorp.com 0xffffffff 300 > 80.000000 <= 75.000000 % s 58720263

This sends a trap 58720263 (Netview ColDetThresh) when utilisation exceeds 80%.
Utilisation data can be obtained by querying the sql database.

I have created a Mib expression to tell me disk utilisation.
Unfortunately no matter what I try I can't seem to get it to either raise a
threshold trap or to be collected by snmpCollect.

I'm sure I am probably missing something fairly obvious.  Has anyone had any
luck with these things?   How can you test them, and is it possible to
collect the results using snmpCollect.
