Hi there,

You could use the SNMP Traffic Sensor to monitor the traffic going through the switch. Did you try that already? Note that you need to configure SNMP correctly in order for the sensors to work properly.

Hi there,

Thanks for the quick revert. You only need to configure basic SNMP access on the brocade appliance. The documentation of the same should disclose how to do it correctly, in case it's somewhat hidden :)

Let me know if assistance is required regarding the SNMP Library sensor. Note that there might be no utilizable OIDs within those MIBs (i.e. only SNMP Trap OIDs). In this case, you won't be able to generate any sensors out of it. But it's still actually usable within PRTG using the SNMP Trap Receiver sensor. Simply copy all MIB files to C:\Program Files (x86)\PRTG Network Monitor\MIB.

Received Traps will then be translated accordingly.


Kind regards,

One of our Brocade FC Switch had produced nearly 2 million errors. We would like to have a sensor in PRTG that queries the errors for each Fiber Channel port.

Has anyone ever created a "FC Switch Port Sensor" and can provide tips (and MIPs) about this?

The MIB files are likely to be accessible via Brocade. That should be the one you're looking for:
