Monitoring SNMP Top Level OID

I am trying to setup a monitoring template for my AIX 6.1 servers. I would like the template to be generic enough that it could be applied to any of my AIX systems that I want to monitor.


I would like to setup Zenoss to monitor certain top level SNMP OIDs and then pull the data for all of the sub OIDs underneath it. I cannot get this to work correctly.


Here is an example .....


The AIX OID has three sub OIDs,, and


I can specify each of the three sub OIDs in the template individuually as separte datasources and it works great. When I try to specify the top level OID( it doesn't seem to pull any data. The issue is that not all of my AIX systems have the same number of sub OIDs for this particular top level OID, so I was thinking I could just tell Zenoss to monitor the top level OID and it would pull the correct sub OIDs for each system. This particular top level OID is for HBA perforamance and the number of sub OIDs depends on how many HBA adapters the server has.


Is there an easy way to setup Zenoss to monitor a top level OID and automatically pull in all of the appropriate sub OIDs?
