Model: TL-ER6020
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.1.0 Build 20150416 Rel.35252

I am using Telegraf to successfully collect SNMP data from several network devices and want to add the above router. 

 

I am only after simple stats WAN1/2 up or down, WAN speed, Overall status and Up time.

 

However, I can find virtually no information about which MIB files I require or which metrics this device supports

 

Does anyone have an example they could share or point me in the right direction!

 

I'm not a professional so please be gentle!

 

Thanks

Hi

 

I think you can check if this router support SNMP. If it support, it should only support Public MIB. Maybe you can use snmpwalk to check.

It definitely supports SNMP as its a menu option which I have already turned on. I have also moved forward in that I can now get some readings into InfluxDB from the Router and some of the tags and field names make sense but the reading don't. I am still missing fields I would really like such as "hrSystemUptime" so I need to spend some time using snmpwalk as you suggested. I still can't believe there is so little info about TP-link Routers and SNMP! Thanks for the input.

I now have everything I want being collected from my TL-ER6020 router with the exception of 'sysUpTime'.

 

when I do a walk through I get:

 

DISMAN-EVENT-MIB::sysUpTimeInstance = Timeticks: (52316600) 6 days, 1:19:26.00

 

 

but this MIB and sysUpTimeInstance returns blank in Telegraf/InfluxDB although telegraf.conf appears to accept this along with the other MIB's.

 

I have also  tried:

 

HOST-RESOURCES-MIB::hrSystemUptime.0

 

which also returns nothing.

 

Does anyone know what I should use to get 'up time' on my router!

 

 

 

Thanks

Did you get the OID of DISMAN-EVENT-MIB::sysUpTimeInstance? Maybe can snmpget this OID.
