RSSI sensor




I try to monitor RSSI (Received Signal Strength Indicator) on my Cisco 819g router, but I can't see this type of sensor. Can someone help me with this, do I need some custom value to make this sensor?

Thank you for your KB-post.

You are right, there is no built-in sensor to monitor this, but you can try using customized SNMP sensors.

Please check if Cisco offers any MIB files that cover RSSI metrics of your Cisco router. If there are such MIBs, you can import them with our MIB-Importer (https://www.paessler.com/tools/mibimporter ), and monitor the target with the "SNMP Library Sensor": https://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg/snmp_library_sensor.htm

Here's a Knowledge Base Article that describes the setup of "SNMP Library Sensors": https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/65638 and there's also a video that shows how to: https://www.paessler.com/support/videos/prtg-advanced/snmp-custom-and-library-sensor
