Detect if Cisco interfaces haven't been used




Is it possible to add a single sensor to a Cisco switch (e.g. 2960X), which displays how long several physical interfaces haven't been used?

best regards

Hi there,

I am afraid that this information is not offered via any OID on the device, at least we are not aware of an OID that offers this piece of information.

Best regards.

Hello, I know that there is a OID which can be used to get the last output time on a Cisco switch. Is it possible with PRTG to create a "custom" table (not predefined like the "SNMP Custom Table"), which can be used to associate the interface name and another picked OID (in my case the OID of the last output)? I think something like that could be a workaround to achieve a table with the given if-name and the last output time.

Best regards
