Introduction:
Using the snmpcollector Self-Certification portlet, wish to  poll a string OID but in metric families there are no string variables with polled on

Similarly, try to create a monitor with the snmpget probe but this is not possible to create a QoS monitoring profile if the corresponding OID contains only a string value.
Question:
Can metric monitors be created for OIDs that return only string values with any of the snmp probes (snmpcollector or snmpget)?
Environment:
Any UIM Server release
ump_selfcert:  1.14 and earlier
snmpget:  2.01 and earlier
Answer:
UIM only supports numeric QoS metrics therefore it is not currently possible to create monitors for OIDs that only return string values.
