Monitor TrippLite UPS power levels (sensor to do so?)




I was wondering if it was possible to monitor UPS power levels through PRTG. The UPSs all have smart web cards that currently have a ping sensor on them, but that only monitors the individual web cards, not the power of the UPS itself. Is it possible to use SNMP Trap Receiver or something similar to do so?

most vendors of UPS solutions are offering SNMP MIB files for their products. If this is the case, the provided MIB file can be imported for the usage in PRTG with the MIB Importer. The resulting OIDlib file can be used with the SNMP Library Sensor.
Best regards
