Changes in  NYMNETWORKS-MIB after updating to up30r2.55016

Two sensors in PRTG available in the previous versions (up to up29r4) are now no longer available after updating to up30 or higher:

- zfsFilesystemUsed
- zfsFilesystemAvailable

Open-E JovianDSS offers additional SNMP values to monitor the zpool and ZFS attributes.
It is necessary to query specific OIDs in order to receive those attributes.

For basic ZFS parameters, NYMNETWORKS-MIB mib is included:

Up to version v.1.0 up29r4  NYMNETWORKS-MIB.txt

From version v.1.0 up30 on NYMNETWORKS-MIB.txt

SNMP OIDs for the version up30 and higher have been changed. Below there is an example for specified OIDS using test pool on up29r2 and up30r2 versions:

Between up29r2 and up30 OIDs for zfs have been rearranged and slightly modified.
zfsFilesystemName iso. = STRING: "Pool-up29r2"

In up29r2 zfsFilesystemUsed and zfsFilesystemAvailable are presented using two units KB and MB in separate OIDS
For KB:
zfsFilesystemUsedKB: iso. = Counter64: 8424616
zfsFilesystemAvailableKB: iso. = Counter64: 51000152

For MB:
zfsFilesystemAvailableMB: iso. = Counter64: 49804
zfsFilesystemUsedMB: iso. = Counter64: 8227

zfsFilesystemCounter: iso. = INTEGER: 1
zfsFilesystemName: iso. = STRING: "Pool-up30r2"

In up30 or higher OIDS for zfsFilesystemAvailable and zfsFilesystemUsed are presented only in one unit "zfsSizeAllocationUnit". This value is used as a unit that is presented in particular file system size values. In order to get the number of bytes it is required to multiply given value by allocation unit.
zfsSizeAllocationUnit: iso. = Counter64: 4096
zfsFilesystemAvailable: iso. = Counter64: 15268807
zfsFilesystemUsed: iso. = Counter64: 66617

Guides for SNMP provide two MIB files: one for version up29r2 and older and one for version up30 and newer. Those MIB files contain updated descriptions of OIDS.
