Can this tool monitor ports on Cisco stacks?



Having been a former SolarWinds user (which handles this effortlessly), I was open to giving this tool a chance. I'm initially a little disappointed in the support for Cisco switch stacks - which we use everywhere.

Am I correct in the statement that the tool cannot identify the actual ports that are presented from each member switch in the stack? I've messed with this for a few hours and haven't had any luck whatsoever.

Hi, unfortunately we do not have native sensors which are working for stacked Cisco switches at the moment. Please have a look here and see if the proposal from novolyus works for you.

Best regards
