Network device serial number detection



Good afternoon,

Does PRTG have sensors for detecting a serial number of Network device/Voice device?

This is only possible to do using specific OIDs that contain this information and a custom OID sensor if this information is available for the device through SNMP. With many network devices, they will have an OID that contains the serial number but this OID can vary from device to device. You would have to look at the MIB provided by the manufacturer to find this info.
