Cisco Router Process Data



I was wondering if there is anyway for PRTG to capture the CPU utilisation of a process on a Cisco router? We currently have a router that occasionally suffers from small bouts of 100% CPU utilisation but at random times and we are struggling to capture the process that is responsible. It would be very useful if PRTG was able to capture this info.

Dear Rob,

thank you very much for your KB-Post. I'm very much afraid though, there are no native sensors in PRTG to monitor process CPU usage on (Cisco) Routers. It might be worth a try though, checking with Cisco if they have an MIB delivering such information. Then you could look into importing this MIB with our MIB Importer.

best regards.
