I'm trying to add a custom OID to report the value of USED swap sapce.  I'm missing something with the syntax I guess.

Here is what I have tried:
extend .1.3.6.1.4.1.9999.1.16.24 swapUsed free|grep Swap:|awk '{print $3}'
extend .1.3.6.1.4.1.9999.1.16.24 swapUsed `free|grep Swap:|awk '{print $3}'`
sh .1.3.6.1.4.1.9999.1.16.24 swapUsed free|grep Swap:|awk '{print $3}'
sh .1.3.6.1.4.1.9999.1.16.24 swapUsed `free|grep Swap:|awk '{print $3}'`

When I poll .1.3.6.1.4.1.9999.1.16.24 with a mib browser I get "snmp no such object"

If I used extend I get:
snmpwalk -c public -v 2c localhost .1.3.6.1.4.1.9999.1.16.24                                        -Os

This is actually what I started with:
extend .1.3.6.1.4.1.9999.1.16.24 swapUsed /usr/bin/free grep Swap:|awk '{print $3}'

As you can see by the walk it's like it doesn't take the args after the free command. How do I make it include the grep Swap:|awk '{print $3}'

This might be good enough: extend-sh .1.3.6.1.4.1.9999.1.16.24 swapUsed /usr/bin/free grep Swap:|awk '{print $3}'

I changed extend to extend-sh and now I get the value in OID SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.9999.1.16.24.4.1.2.8.115.119.97.112.85.115.101.100.4 = STRING: "72"

Which is the correct value .....but what is all that other junk? I just want 72 as an integer and not all the other junk.
And were does all this (.4.1.2.8.115.119.97.112.85.115.101.100.4)added on to my OID come from?

I fogot to add the pipe back.  output is a little better now. So how do I make it an integer or does it matter. I think it does because I want to creat a trap to see if it's >0

I've tried a few things like int(command) and add INTEGER at the end of the extend line. It returns an integer but it's 512 instead of the current used value of swap which should be 72
