I also had no luck with SNMP polling. But I use the e-mail sensor to check for keep-alive messages and failure notices.

Found a minimal solution at last:

Using the fibrealliance MIB showed an entry:

"conn unit Status"

After digging arround, it seems this one is providing integer values, and IMHO "3" ist stating that the unit is OK/healty and all other number indicate that something is wrong. however this is not yet veryfied, because all our Units ar in production.

if anyone has a testunit available: pleas test/verify! TNX

Update: As of version 18.1.37, PRTG includes 5 sensor types that enable you to monitor your Dell EMC storage systems out of the box! The sensors use the REST API of Dell EMC devices to show you health status and other important measurements of your Dell EMC storage components.
