SNMP - reboot devices



Somehow I can restart a device through the PRTG

Example: A Mikrotik device stops responding and then I reboot it via the PRTG via SNMP.

Hey Leonardo,

Thank you for your KB-posting.

Actually, this is not possible with our native sensors as PRTG uses SNMP get and walk only (but no set which is required to change anything on the device or to trigger any action, like a reboot).

However, please refer to this article which might point you in the right direction.

Kind regards,
