Configuring a sensor for a Cisco switch



Hi, We are evaluating PRTG Monitor at the moment, and I am adding the switches at all of our sites. Is it possible to add a single sensor per switch that shows all of the ports, if they are up/down, speed, duplex and (if possible) connected MAC address?

i know that this information can be obtained, as much of it is displayed on the initial configuration screen when you start the configuration of a sensor using "SNMP Traffic".

Thanks, Tony

Thank-you for your response. Ho much of that information can I see on one sensor? If in the setup I can get a table showing the speed, connection status and name of all the ports is it possible just to get that information on one sensor?
