Request an update to the APC UPS Sensor for Power Chute version 10



I would like to request an update to the APC UPS Sensor for Power Chute version 10. Along with receiving all the basic information as with your original sensor, it should be able to independently change the port since the newer versions won't work with the Windows default SNMP port (if you try to use port 161 in the PowerChute app, it tells you that port is being used and will not let you set it). Thank you, Ken

Hi Ken,

For feature requests please use the steps described in this article: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/79245-how-can-i-propose-new-features-or-sensors-for-prtg

You can also change the SNMP Port in the device settings. Therefore, please follow these steps:

  • 1. Navigate to the corresponding device
  • 2. Switch to the "Settings" tab
  • 3. Deactivate the inheritance of the option "Credentials for SNMP Devices"
  • 4. Enter a new SNMP-Port
  • 5. Save your changes

Please note that this changes the port for each SNMP sensor on the corresponding device.

Best Regards, Moritz Paessler Support Team
