How can I monitor interface bandwidth on a cisco sg 200 switch? It doesn't appear to support SNMP - thought it does offer RMON.

Has anyone come across this yet?

Cisco SG200-08 (SLM2008T V01, firmware v1.0.8.3) apparently still does not support SNMP. It looks like its an intentional restriction by design - to force people into buying more expensive models - just to get SNMP.

But, I've written a bat to sidestep this restriction. It extracts the data values from the web interface using cURL, and outputs it as XML so you can use it directly in PRTG as a custom EXE/Script sensor.

I've created a small guide on how to do this... https://sites.google.com/site/sg20008/

It's obviously a limitation of the switch itself -- even in the web management UI for the switch, the utilization info is very limited. I found myself surprised with all the other management features of the switch that it doesn't support SNMP at all. Huge mistake by Cisco! RMON without SNMP is fairly useless for remotely gathering / reporting on the interfaces of the switch.

Now we know, not a switch we'll recommend or encourage clients to use!

The latest firmware version from Cisco now supports SNMP for the 200 Series switches. Download from Cisco and install.
