Cisco Switches usually have three connection states:
- connected (an active device is connected to the Port)
- notconnected (no device is connected or the device is without power)
- disabled (the port is shut down by the network administrator)
I didn't find a way to distinct between state 2 and 3 in PRTG. The Cisco OIDs give us the correct values, but for PRTG, "disabled" an "notconnected" ports are the same.
In a well managed network, all Ports which aren't in use are "disabled", while "notconnected" ports point to an error/misconfiguration.
Is it possible to get and distinct all three states ?
