Missing Temperature Sensors on Cisco ASA 5506-X



The "SNMP Cisco System Health" sensor does not appear to be properly setup to pull temperature data from Cisco ASAs. We are using (primarily) Cisco ASA 5506-x in our branch firewalls and PRTG is not showing temperature data from any of our units.

Other SNMP monitoring systems I've tested (Solarwinds and LibreNMS) are capturing and displaying this data successfully so I know the data is available through SNMP.

Is there anyway to PRTG to access and display this data as well? Currently, the "SNMP Cisco System Health" sensor appears to only be able to read CPU and Memory utilization statistics.

Hi there,

I will open a Support Ticket for further analysis. First we need to check what exactly the device is reporting back. Sometimes adding the sensor anew might already help.

You'll get a mail shortly with further details.

Kind regards,
