Have you extended your snmpd.conf with the needed bind command and copied the file inplace?

Exactly what Jarod2801 said, you need to follow the doc and set it up before you flip the switch in the web ui.

here is my modules, already enabled

i will follow the DOC
many thanks

@busy that dosnt do anything unless you have configured the app on the remote server.

Just to give you info about my experience:
Try to use the “SNMP extend” way.

It’s easier than the agent way!

Hi Guys,

Sorry to open an old thread, but I would like some help in getting BIND monitored.
I have followed the documentation as suggested, yet I still get NAN values in all the BIND application graphs

Below is my /etc/snmp/bind.conf file on the target DNS server running BIND9:

And below is what i see in LNMS:

BIND application is also enabled in the host settings in LNMS.

Any tips please ?
