When checking one sonicwall the uptime is shown correctly, where as the other is incorrect.

[root@nagios ~]# /usr/local/nagios/libexec/check_snmp -H 10.1.1.9 -C public -o sysUpTime.0 -v
/usr/bin/snmpget -Le -t 1 -r 5 -m ALL -v 1 [authpriv] 10.1.1.9:161 sysUpTime.0
DISMAN-EVENT-MIB::sysUpTimeInstance = Timeticks: (20142368) 2 days, 7:57:03.68
SNMP OK - Timeticks: (20142368) 2 days, 7:57:03.68 |

snmpwalk -v 2c -c public 10.1.1.9 system
SNMPv2-MIB::sysDescr.0 = STRING: Dell SonicWALL SRA 4200 (SonicOS SSL-VPN 7.5.0.0-6sv)
SNMPv2-MIB::sysObjectID.0 = OID: SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.8741.6
DISMAN-EVENT-MIB::sysUpTimeInstance = Timeticks: (20164631) 2 days, 8:00:46.31


[root@nagios ~]# /usr/local/nagios/libexec/check_snmp -H 10.2.2.25 -C public -o sysUpTime.0 -v
/usr/bin/snmpget -Le -t 1 -r 5 -m ALL -v 1 [authpriv] 10.2.2.25:161 sysUpTime.0
DISMAN-EVENT-MIB::sysUpTimeInstance = Timeticks: (9689595) 1 day, 2:54:55.95
SNMP OK - Timeticks: (9689595) 1 day, 2:54:55.95 |

10.1.1.9 has been up for 281 days. It is a SRA 4200 and 10.2.2.25 is a NSA 3500. Any clue why the uptime is reported incorrectly?

i think snmp is unable to fetch system uptime.. instead of system's uptime, it is fetching up the snmp's service uptime. Please cross check.

you might need to modify the plugin or use differnt set of MIBs to get the exact details in Nagios Core.
