What is right way for obtain Oid from Arista? I need obtain temperature from the switch. From this I find out that CPU sensor OID is .

  switch#show snmp mib walk .1 | grep "sensor"
ENTITY-MIB::entPhysicalDescr[100006001] = STRING: Cpu temp sensor

switch#sh snmp mib translate SNMPv2-MIB::sysDescr.100006001

But when I do snmpwalk I see this result:

SnmpWalk.exe -r:*ip_address* -v:3 -ap:md5 -sn:**** -aw:**** -pp:des -****  -os:. -op:.

OID=., Type=OctetString, Value=Arista Networks EOS version 4.25.4M running on an Arista Networks DCS-7050SX3-48YC8
OID=., Type=OID, Value=
OID=., Type=TimeTicks, Value=6 days, 13:10:26.77
OID=., Type=OctetString, Value=
Total: 4

I don't see . How can I get a cpu temperature of the switch?

  • If you want that OID, then ask for it. (snmpget, not walk.)
