How can I monitor bandwidth on HP Virtual Connect 8Gb 20-Port Fibre Channel Module



I already tried the SNMP Traffic sensor and it shows only the management port. (also played with the SNMP Settings of the Switch) The switch offers SMI-S too, can I use it?

fc fibre-channel snmp virtual-connect

please use our SNMP Tester to "scan available standard interfaces" against the target switch. Do you then see all interfaces (with different settings, SNMP version, etc.)?

best regards.

Hello Mr. Lindner,

Here the result (tried different settings):

Found standard interfaces:
1: (001) eth0,Connected,100 MBit/s,Ethernet,
2: (002) lo,Connected,10 MBit/s,Software Loopback,

I also tried to figure out which MIB can be used to convert to a OID and had no luck: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?swItem=MTX-722ee8c388c04a469c24ff60df&taskId=135&swLang=8&lang=en&cc=us&mode=3&

best regards

If the tester also only reports these two interfaces then PRTG can't find the other interfaces. Please consult with the vendor if there are actually SNMP counters for those interfaces.
