Do you have the correct MIBs for the 2900?  Are you using the correct OID values for the information you want to see?  Are you matching your community strings correctly?

Get a tool called getif (search www.google.com) which is free and allows you to "walk" mibs and graph realtime values like bytes in/out of an interface.

You may have a problem with indexes and getif will help you solve that. For example, I had a similar problem with Bay interfaces. And it turned out that whenever you rebooted or added an interface or deleted an interface the index numbers for all interfaces changed.

getif will help you solve this kind of problem.


Good luck.

Sorry. I remembered to add the link to getif as an afterthought . . .
