How to monitor Brocade switch CPU and Memory usage



How can I monitor a Brocade switch for CPU and Memory utilization? I have SNMP set up on the switch and it's in PRTG, but I cant get it to monitor the CPU and Memory. I've tried using multiple different OIDs and sensors and nothing has worked. They all come back with NOSUCHINSTANCE. How can I get this monitoring setup?

Thank you for your post.

I would recommend using our SNMP Tester to check if you are able to query the device. You could first try the "Read Device Uptime" option to see if the device responds to basic SNMP queries. If that works you can try the "Custom OID" option with one of the OIDs that you tried in PRTG.
