Is there a way to edit the SNMP Traffic sensor to include the actual interface speed?



Is it possible to edit the SNMP Traffic sensor or create something else to have monitoring on configured/negociated interfaces speed (10, 100, 1000 Mbps)?

I know it's possible to create a custom sensor with ifspeed like this :


but simply adding it to SNMP Traffic sensor would be way better. Adding a custom sensor would mean maybe using 2 sensors (1 for the negociated speed and 1 for the actual traffic speed) for a single interface.

Thank you,

We don't offer a solution to change the SNMP Traffic sensor on your side. Currently you only have the opportunity to create a script which can check the desired values.

What do you mean by a script? I tried to create a custom lib sensor but it doesn't come out clean like the basic snmp traffic sensor.

You need to create a script which can show you the desired information. Afterwards, you can use this script in your PRTG instance with a EXE/Script Advanced sensor.
