Switch Port Monitoring



Your Vote:




I have a lot of Cisco switches and want to have an auto-discovery that detects ALL switch ports. How can i do this?

I read that following: The Auto-Discovery only creates SNMP Traffic Sensors if the TrafficIN-counter for the according interface is above 0.

Is that still true?

Are there any workarounds? I could not add ports manually, because i have thousands of switch interfaces.

Hi Houdini,

This information is still up to date. Nevertheless, you can add an SNMP Traffic Sensor to the device and choose all available interfaces at once during the initial installation process. This will add a sensor for each selected object.

Best regards
