Re: snmpconf PM MIB issue #6 CLOSED - counter32Delta and counterRate

hi chris

i agree with most of what you said, but have a question ...

are you assuming that the script is running on the same managed system
as where the sysUpTime and Counter32 variables "live"

how would your thinking change if they were not on the same system, which
is something we agreed to support
