Hello

When i add a Bandwith SNMP Traffic sensor to a switch, i can select the Ports and see if the connected device is connected with 100mb/s or 1gb/s etc.

After the Sensors are added, i can't find that Connectionspeed Info again on the Port Sensors. am i missing something?

cheers Tibor

connect port speed switch

hallo,

this information is not yet available in the PRTG interface. Port speed is only requested during sensor creation.

Has any progress been made to allow this? Don't see a reason to allow us to see port speed etc during creation but not after creation. Would rather not create/cancel sensor creation, SSH or log into the switch UI to grab a high level view of port settings.

Would definitely be useful if we're able to see this information. Possibly a sensor that can detect speed/duplex changes would be nice as well.

Thanks, Sonny

I strongly agree. Being able to instantly know the port speed value is important.

We definitely have a need for this. We have a port channel where one of two ports degraded from 1gb to 100mb, and we would like to know immediately. Most likely a layer 1 cable was bumped. Are there plans for this and if so when. This item is pretty old with no real answer to the OP question.

Hi,

In the device settings, you can add [ifspeed] to the port name template (under SNMP Compatibility Options) to get the estimated current bandwidth of the port in the sensor name.

Best,
Stephan
