Cisco 6506 current and voltage



I have two 6506's and both report about 27ma for current and 0v for voltage. The current sensor is the Current 5012 and the voltage is the Voltage 5011. Both of these readings are below the low threshold and alarming.

Is this an accurate reading and should I be concerned?

thank you very much for using PRTG. When PRTG adds this sensor, it asks the target device (the Cisco Device) for critical threshold for each value (channel). These thresholds are then set as Warning & Error-Limits in the Channel Settings of the Sensor. Sometimes the devices return non-sensical values, in those cases please change the limits manually and adjust them to your "needs".

best regards.
