I am using PRTG v8 and PRTG Traffic Grapher to monitor DELL switches in my office. A number of my switch ports go up and down all day. They are down for only a few seconds according to the email trail but it offers concern to me that there may be a larger underlying problem in my network.
State: DOWN Error: No response (check: firewalls, routing, snmp settings of device, IPs, SNMP version, community, passwords etc) Group: Core Switch
Sensor: Port 650 (802.1Q VLAN) on Core Switch (10.1.100.100)
Current Total: 0 kbit/second Date: 10/22/2010 11:53:42 AM
Is there a possibility that this error not caused by PRTG having issues with communication? Or can I be confident that there is a problem that I need to resolve.
Seems to be random ports that are failing but failing on a regular basis.
Thanks for your help with this.
