DCR: APC Switched/Metered PDU support

Not sure where to submit Device Support requests, so please redirect.

We deploy the APC Switched-Metered PDU's to our entire bench & rack infrastructure across our multiple lab environments. I had hoped that since APC UPS's were supported natively that their PDU's would be as well, apparently not.

I will attempt to add device support via "Custom SNMP" sensor creation, but would much rather have the experts provide built-in support.

Thanks in advance!

In addition to the standard ping sensor these are the custom OIDs that I'm using to monitor my metered APC PDUs. I don't have any switched APC PDUs so I don't know which OID(s) might be able to be queried to return the details of individual outlets. Other that that, I would expect these OIDs to work the same between the metered and switched APC PDUs.

Native support for the PDUs might be available soon, but it is not jet certain when!

This is how we have set up monitoring the status and load (amps) of the APC metered PDU's.

I agree - I would like to see APC support so we can monitor our APC PDUs. And the link provided still doesn't work. If there is another HOWTO available, it would be extremely helpful.

I agree, APC PDUs are industry standard. Please add support or at least a HOWTO.

Dear banditti

For now, please use the SNMP Custom sensor or convert a MIB file to an OIDLIB for use with the SNMP library sensor. Native PRTG support for these devices will not be implemented in the foreseeable future.

In addition to the MIB's above listed by user Jason Proos, we were able to modify the MIB for various others:

1.3.6.1.4.1.318.1.1.12.2.3.1.1.2.1 - total amps/load (divide by 10) - change unit to "A" for amps

1.3.6.1.4.1.318.1.1.12.2.3.1.1.2.2 - bank 1 load (divide by 10) - change unit to "A" for amps

1.3.6.1.4.1.318.1.1.12.2.3.1.1.2.3 - bank 2 load (divide by 10) - change unit to "A" for amps

1.3.6.1.4.1.318.1.1.12.2.3.1.1.2.0 - wattage, can be displayed in watts: 1,200 OR divide by 1000 for kW 1.2 kW - change unit to "watts" or "kW" for watts/kW

These MIBS were tested on AP88XX PDU's.

Dear Felix Saure,

we just saw your answer to this post and the MIB from Jason Proos. A PDU usually also have optional sensor ports. Normally it is also in the MIB and you have to import it in PRTG with the MIB Importer. With our PDUs you do not have to import anything with the MIB Importer. You can easily use a Plug-n-play PRTG driver to import the most important monitoring values such as current, voltage, power consumption, temperature, humidity, ... It takes less than 5 minutes. See it yourself in the Tutorial of PRTG with GUDE. or read it yourself in our Quick Start guide:

Best regards,

GUDE support team
