During monitoring, you can customize the OID, updating units, calculations, the IP address, among other options.

  1. Click Graph > Customize Graph Style.
  2. Click the OID tab, and then select the OID to customize.
  3. Click the ellipses (…) next to the IP address or host name.
  4. Specify the changes to make on the Customize OID window.
    For example, you can update the community string.

The Units field accepts functions. For example, the ifOutOctets.1 OID collects data in octets, but you can display the results in bps by entering the formula bits=*8 in the Units field. This calculation takes the OID data in octets and multiplies it by 8 to show data in bits per second. To view the results in nibbles, change the formula to nibbles=*2, as one octet equals two nibbles.
