I am using PRTG to monitor our network to see if it is worth the investment in the full product. I like the information it can give on CPU usage and memory et cetera, but when it comes to switch's and SNMP monitors it doesn't seem to give any information that I can find, and I might be missing a lot, that could point me into a direction to look for a cause.

I have a sensor setup to monitor a Cisco 3750x Switch stack and one of the servers attached to a part had a connection issue that was called it. I looked at the log for that server and this is what I see for the port that the server is plugged into:

You can see from the monitor log that it shows an error, but it gives me nothing to determine what the cause was. Was it the switch, the port, something plugged into it, nothing, at least as far as I can tell.

How can something like that help me other than to tell me something happened and at what time.

Does anyone have any suggestions?
