APC NetBotz 200 Cacti Temp and Humidity Graphs

How to Graph the APC NetBotz 200 Environment Monitor

Get the data templates ->  cacti-apc-netbotz200-data-templates

Cacti Temp and Humidity Graphs for the APC NETBOTZ 200 is different from the NETBotz 400 and 600 models.

The APC Netbotz200 has 8 sensor inputs on the device so each input has a OID associatedwith it. What I did was scan the MIBs available and found where the Temp and Humidity values were stored. They are not stored in the same OID as the NetBotz 400 and 600 models.

To scan your Netbotz 200:

Sensor #1
snmpwalk -v1 -c public [IP address of Netbotz]  
snmpwalk -v1 -c public [IP address of Netbotz]
snmpwalk -v1 -c public [IP address of Netbotz]

Sensor #8 (name)
snmpwalk -v1 -c public [IP Address of Netbotzs]
snmpwalk -v1 -c public [IP address of Netbotz]
snmpwalk -v1 -c public [IP address of Netbotz]

The last period in the OID starts at 1 and goes to 14. Each one in succession is another sensor on the Netbotz 200. Using snmpwalk to walk the OID’s will show you what is labeled. Walk this OID to see all sensor names (

In Cacti add a host with the correct IP and SNMP community (Version 1) then apply the templates provided above to pickup sensor #1 If you need more sensors then duplicate the templates and update the OID in them for the next sensor OID #.

Your graphs should look like..

Party on!!
