 This affects several network devices, all same model & firmware version. Network team claims the consumed memory is around 5-6 GB out of 16 GB.

Release : Any supported UIM version

probe: snmpcollector

Model Type: CiscoNXOS

Cisco Nexus 9372PX-E


According to the mibwalk provided, Device certification team have certified 2 OIDs, following the rule: ceExtNVRAMSize >= ceExtNVRAMUsed.

But now we can see
ceExtNVRAMSize, Gauge       , 364916736
ceExtNVRAMUsed, Gauge       , 3536400384

=> ceExtNVRAMSize < ceExtNVRAMUsed    => Memory Utilization is over 100%

So customers are recommended to contact the device vendor to resolve this issue of SNMP agent in their network device in this use case
