How much only one SNMP poll(not several polls per min) consumes(data needs to be transferred) from a Cisco Switch Interface? I am talking about that interface itself snmp not the whole switch(data like input and output rate of that interface itself)
for only one 10gig interface(not all) I set an interval of 1 sec to monitor the load on this interface, I wanted to know how much extra load this SNMP polling can put the interface...
it will not put much load on the interface - since it is 10G, it will add more process consumption. monitor CPU before monitoring interface every 3 seconds and compare.
before and after,

9500 processor won't be even bothered by something like this, so I will decrease to 1 second, I really need a live data out of this specific interface for a day or two..
I just wanna be certain that the traffic that I am monitoring is not showing wrong statistics based on the utilization I am putting on the interface because of snmp, in total is it gonna be more than 2Mbits/s?
"6672 bits during the span of one minute"
I have gone over this link before I post the question,
He hasn't put the interval, you can make intervals from milliseconds(not in prtg) to 59 seconds!
How many bits per poll? I couldn't interpret...
The Interval depends on the application. For example; SolarWinds Network Performance Monitoring (NPM) system polls every 120 seconds (2 min). You can change that but it is usually not recommended as it can overwhelm the database.
