How to add Cisco Nexus N7706 to PRTG




I have some cisco devices and want to monitor them using PRTG. For Catalyst switch, I can add sensor using default Cisco template but for Nexus N7706 I can not add any sensors using Cisco default template, just found PING sensor.

Could someone guide me how to add Cisco Nexus N77 to PRTG?

Thanks in advance

What are you looking to monitor exactly? You can find all available (Cisco) Sensors here. Are you able to add these sensors manually?

Kind Regards,

Hi Timo,

Thanks for your response.

Is there any way to add sensors automatically like default Cisco template? I am new to PRTG so I think add sensors manually is not a good way...

If the default Cisco template is not working but you are able to add your desired sensors manually, please do so once. Afterwards you can create a custom device template using this device, if you want to add it several times.
