Monitor Cisco POE budget



Does PRTG monitor the POE budget of Cisco switches?

I am concerned we are adding more and more POE devices to our Cisco switches, at some point the POE budget will be up.

Does PRTG monitor the POE budget of Cisco switches? Will it warn me when the switch is nearly at capacity of POE and before people start adding too many POE devices?

Thanks, Richard.

Hi there,

We have no native Sensor. However, you can use a SNMP Custom Sensor. I would recommend to take a look at this MIB. In addition, here is another KB post which describes an similar situation.
