Generating the Watchpoint OID
You can send traffic-related metrics from Watchpoints to your SNMP manager. To send Watchpoint data, you create the SNMP Object Identifier (OID) for the Watchpoint and select the metrics that you want defined in the MIB.
Before you begin
Ensure that the Watchpoint for which you want to build an OID is exposed in the MIB. To do so, open the Watchpoint details and ensure that the Expose Watchpoint in MIB check box is selected, as shown in the following figure:

To generate the Watchpoint OID
To perform this procedure, you must have Operator-level access, or higher.
In the Real User Analyzer interface, click the Watchpoints tab.
The Watchpoint summary page opens.
- Click the Watchpoint for which you want to build an OID.
- On the Watchpoint details page, on the Action menu, click Build an OID.
The Watchpoint OID builder opens, as shown in the following figure:

Select one of the following metrics that you want to access through the system MIB:
Metric Description Host Delay introduced by server processing (web, application, and database) Network Delay caused by network transmission End-to-end Total delay in request handling Page-render Time the browser took to load a page and its content SSL Delay caused by SSL encryption Throughput Network throughput TCP RTT Time for the request to travel the network between client and server Errors Number of errors during the last 5 minutes HTTP Status code HTTP value from the web server in response to the request HTTP method Type of HTTP transaction used in the request Out-of-order TCP segments Number of TCP segments delivered out of the expected sequence TCP retransmissions Number of TCP segments that have been re-sent Monitor A variety of metrics and statistics to get an overall view of the performance
- Choose a calculation for the selected metric, for example 95th percentile.
The OID builder automatically generates the OID based on the variable parameters:
- Watchpoint ID
Copy the generated Watchpoint OID and use it in your system MIB.
