    The virtualServer Table has four OIDs for octets in and out.
    These oids have the data for bytes in and out. The OIDs suffixed with
    Hi32 are the upper 32 bits of precision for the counters. Internal
    to BIG-IP the data is stored in 64 bit counters. The OIDs for these
    counters in both ascii and numeric format follow.

    Subject: [load balancing] F5 BigIP MIB

    While browsing the F5 BIGIG MIB tree, I can't seem to find any OID for
    and bitsout for a virtual server in . I do see
    info for
    packetsin and packetsout however but it's not quite what I'm looking for as
    want to monitor bandwidth.

    Do I need to upgrade the snmp agent or is it available in another OID? I can
    see it by referring tot he virtual server interface "number" but I would
    like to
    refer to the IP directly (using the above OID) in case if they get

    Also, what is the difference between PacketsIn and PacketsInHi32? Not
    sure what the Hi32 means.
