We need to monitor the download/upload bandwidth on interfaces on Huawei S5300 switches, and we need to do it with a specific monitoring system. This system can get information from a switch using SNMP OID and can draw historic graphs based on collected data.

The issue is that there is no standard OID for bandwidth. For instance, the well known IF-MIB and its ifTable ( can return values for the number of bytes going in/out of the interface (.16-ifOutOctets and .10-ifInOctets) but they aren't useful since they need to be processed in a formula to get the actual bandwidth. The monitoring system we use has not built in option to calculate bandwidth using the information from IF-MIB.

As a solution, we're looking for Huawei custom MIB that can give us data about the current bandwidth usage of an interface. Is there a way to get the "Last 300 seconds input rate" and "Last 300 seconds ourput rate" in bits/sec for Ethernet and GigabitEthernet interface on S5300 switches using SNMP? Practically, we need the MIB and SNMP OID that relates to the input/output rate that is shown using the command: "display interface GigabitEthernet 0/0/X", as shown at the image below:
