Monitoring Dell PowerVault (not just disks)



Is anyone doing full monitoring of a Dell PowerVault? I see there's disk sensors for it, but what about monitoring the controllers and network ports? Is there a way to monitor these in PRTG?

At this time we do not have sensors for these elements of the PowerVaults. But if you get the SNMP MIB files for your hardware version of the PowerVault, you can create sensors to monitor this information.

Dell has good MIB support through their support portal. I recommend you reach out to them for support.
