Q. I've created a custom SNMP probe, but I don't want it to probe the standard SNMP MIB II variables as well as the variables specified in the probe. Should I use the nomib2="true" property in the section of the probe?
A. The nomib2 property tells InterMapper that it should not include a request for the sysUpTime.0 variable in the custom SNMP request. If you're tracking any kind of counter, you probably want to include that because it makes computed rates more accurate.
To skip the rest of the standard boilerplate SNMP queries, add the MINIMAL flag to the section.
