SNMP Monitoring Arista switches 7048



Hi I have PRTG 8 running in my office, and we added Arista switches, enabled SNMP with a community string, and we are able to detect the Cisco switch, but not the Arista switches using auto discovery.

If auto doesnt work, how do I go about manually adding?

I'm afraid the mentioned devices are not supported out of the box. You might try adding a SNMP Traffic Sensor, this should work, as traffic counters are standardized. Furthermore the vendor should provide MIB files, which can be imported to PRTG using the MIB Importer.
Best regards
