I am a new user of PRTG using the trial version. I work in a shop with all Dell PowerConnect switches that I am looking to monitor bandwidth on. Because we use Dell there is no NetFlow or Jflow available to me. All switches have a very basic configuration and are on the same subnet. I installed the product and discovery found all the switches I asked it to, but there are issues:
1. Some of the switches were discovered by name, and some by IP. There are DNS entries for all switches and name resolution is working, but PRTG discovered them inconsistently. 2. Some switches show all the expected Ethernet Interfaces and some show few or none. 3. All interfaces that are being shown are listed as "paused" and have no traffic history associated with them.
I am using the default installation and discovery methods. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.
