Hi salhorgnem,

Thank you for your post.

PRTG provides some native Dell Sensors (e.g. SNMP Dell PowerEdge System Health Sensor). However, we don't have a native Sensor to monitor the "Dell vxrail manager". If you want to monitor this application, I recommend using the "REST Custom Sensor". The REST Custom sensor queries a REST Application Programming Interface (API) endpoint and maps the JSON or XML result to Sensor values.

For more detailed information, please follow these links:

Have a nice day!

Hello, any plan to introdice a "VSAN" sensor? According to Gartner "Hyperconverged software" quadrant published on December 2020, Vmware/VSAN is in the second place leader and very close to Nutanix.

Hi there,

At the moment, this is not planned according to our roadmap: https://www.paessler.com/prtg/roadmap
If you want, please create a feature request for such a Sensor: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/79245-how-can-i-propose-new-features-or-sensors-for-prtg
