Seperating SNMP data into different measurements

I am collecting data from several different types of systems using SNMP. I don’t mind systems with the same data types going to into the snmp measurements area, but when I add different data types, it makes a mess of the columns in the database. Some systems are collecting data for some columns, while other systems are collecting data for completely different columns.

Is it possible to direct snmp plugin input data to different measurements? Have a measurement area for Switchs, and a measurement area for ServerHardware, and maybe another one for OS measurements?

I would consider using different snmp input plugins for each of the different areas if you are not already. Then you can set the name_override to change the metric name.

Figured it out…

name_override = ‘MeasurementNameInDB’
