Hi,

I am having an issue. I want to be monitoring the RSL, TX and RS power level of a trunk interface connected to a Huawei layer 3 switch on my network. I have tried different ways of doing that but none is yielding any result.

i can monitor the live traffic (ie Total traffic, traffic in and traffic out) on that interface. But i also want to be monitoring the RSL, TX and RS power also.

Do anyone have answer to these?

Hello Nitin,

Thanks for reaching out to us! Are you referring to the Received Signal level?

If so, these counters are not part of the default traffic sensors of PRTG, neither I'm aware if these are available on the interface of the switch or the target device.

My first guess here is that you'll need to request if these metrics are available on the device behind the Huawei router and if it's capable of SNMP for instance. You can then import the MIB file by following this guide and monitor the target device directly by creating a device in PRTG with the respective address.

Hello Nitin,

Thanks for elaborating. This is also not part of the IFX-Table which the SNMP Traffic Sensors are using.

Therefore, the second part of my reply still replies to request the respective MIB file to import it to PRTG.


Kind regards,
