Hi there,

Kindly note that we currently don't have device-specific built-in sensors for HP's switches, but this doesn't mean that you won't be able monitor your device with PRTG. As long as the device supports a protocol that PRTG supports (SNMP for example) and the vendor provides an SNMP MIB file for the device, you will be able to import the MIB with our MIB Importer and add all possible sensors within PRTG.

Kindly review the following KB article for instructions and links to the required tool to add your MIB's SNMP Library Sensors within PRTG:

For any further questions or issues, we're glad to help.
