What OID displays the MAC addresses of devices connected to the switch and chassis?



I try to view the MAC addresses of devices connected to the switch and chassis but I did not find any functional information so far. Is it possible to be informed about this? Thank you in advance for your answer.

Hello there,

If you're able to locate this information(the precise OID's) on Cisco's MIB (or on one of the standard MIB's) you should be able to monitor the individual values with a SNMP Custom String Sensor configured with Extended Processing for Hexadecimal bytes (as in MAC addresses) (within the sesor's settings).

Best Regards,
