Unfortunately a default PRTG sensor does not exist to monitor the cisco asr tunnel traffic, sorry.

Please check if the vendor of your device offers any MIB files that you can import with our MIB-Importer . If so, you can monitor the target with the "SNMP Library Sensor" .

Here's a Knowledge Base Article that describes the setup of "SNMP Library Sensors" and there's also a video that shows how to.

You guys should create sensor for this. This page shows steps needed: https://stujordan.wordpress.com/2012/05/15/collecting-crypto-vpn-traffic-info-from-cisco-routers/

Hopefully you can try making a sensor like that.

Thanks, Tadey

Hey there,

Thanks for letting us know. I would recommend to open an official feature request here. That way other customers are also able to vote for this.
