Cisco Network Swtiches SNMP monitoring



Your Vote:




I've added a bunch of network swtiches into PRTG using the Auto Discovery Tool. It has added them in with all of the sensors for bandwidth monitoring etc. The sensor name it creates however is based off the Interface Name for example

(10103) Wireless AP Traffic
(10104) Wireless AP Traffic
(10124) gigabit Ethernet1/0/24 Traffic
(10201) Trunk to Core Traffic

The problem I have is when I click on one of these sensors it doesn't actually tell me what Interface it relates to, so if the interface description changes on the switch and doesn't get updates in PRTG, I don't know what is what.

Is there a way to view what interface it relates to?
