I'm using SNMP::Manager to poll some network devices. I can successfully
poll ifName, ifDescr but not ifDescription (iso.3.6.1.2.1.31.1.1.1.18)
for some reason. I believe I have the right oid here...maybe someone can
correct me if I'm wrong but I am trying to get the interface description
that was assigned by the administrator on the port of a Cisco switch.
ifDescr gives me the interface name assigned by Cisco (ex: fastethernet
0/1) but I need the description which usually contains the server name
assigned by the administrator of the server plugged into each port.

Any reason why ifDescription won't work in this situation?

thanks
