Overview

The following outlines how Orion calculates the Memory Utilization of Net-SNMP devices.

Environment

All versions of NPM

Detail

For Net-SNMP the following OIDs will be used:

Total RAM in machine: 1.3.6.1.4.1.2021.4.5
Total RAM available: 1.3.6.1.4.1.2021.4.6
Total RAM Buffered: 1.3.6.1.4.1.2021.4.14
Total Cached Memory: 1.3.6.1.4.1.2021.4.15


The way that we work out the percentage is as follows:

Total RAM in machine - Total RAM Available = Total RAM Used
(12198828 - 459380 = 11739448)

 

Total RAM Used - Cached Memory - RAM Buffered = Used Memory
(11739448 - 6583736 - 60 = 5155652)

 

The values we put into the Database will be:

Total RAM in machine & Used Memory but we first multiply the value by 1024
12198828 *  1024  = 12491599872 (Total RAM)
5155652 *  1024  = 5279387648   (Used Memory)

 

To get the percentage:
(Used Memory / Total RAM) * 100
(5279387648 / 12491599872) * 100 = 42.26%
