sensors to detect ProCurve port connections



I am trying to find a way to monitor all the switches in our company and to notify if there is a particular port that goes down and if a MAC address plugged into a port changes. Are there sensors to do this? Thank You!

Thank you for the KB-Post. While you can use simple SNMP Traffic Sensors to monitor if a switch port is connected or not, monitoring for certain MAC addresses plugged into ports can't be done with PRTG. Sorry.

best regards.
