I am trying to follow the steps to add a custom metric to be polled to Report Manager, The metric is displayed in oneClick but there is no attribute associated to it.


Spectrum 10.x


Lets map the metric to an attribute using mib tools.

Launch mib tools

<Please see attached file for image>

launch mib tools

This will take a while to load its mibs

<Please see attached file for image>

loading mibs


Once mibtools is open, we can search for the mib we are trying to use, in this case power-ethernet

<Please see attached file for image>

search for the mib

Now we can expand that mib and find the metric we are interested in, in this case


<Please see attached file for image>

find the metric



Now let's see if there is an attribute associated with it and if not, we can map one, at the top select the map tab

<Please see attached file for image>

no attribute shown


In this case the metric is not associated with an attribute by default, so using the map button at the top, we will map it to one.

<Please see attached file for image>

map the attribute


And the metric is mapped to an attribute.

<Please see attached file for image>

successfully mapped


And now the metric has an attribute value:

metric now has an attribute



you can now proceed to add the new metric to Report Manager.
