wishlist : UPS sensor



Hi, I would really appreciate an nice and easy UPS sensor, we are using EATON EX 1000 UPS and with the Eaton mib, it's not really usefull.

I'm ready to help to develop something as it's something that I'm missing.

Kind regards,

Thank you very much for using PRTG. As pretty much each vendor uses its own set of OIDs (and thus MIBs) for its devices, it's very hard to build generic sensors. This applies to UPS devices as well. I'm afraid we can only recommend to really use the MIB from Eaton here then and work with SNMP Library Sensors. Or if you know the exact OIDs, consider using SNMP Custom Sensors.

best regards.
