Unfortunately a native PRTG sensor does not exist to monitor the cisco tunnel state.

Please check if the vendor of your device offers any MIB files that you can import with our MIB-Importer . If so, you can monitor the target with the "SNMP Library Sensor" .

Here's a Knowledge Base Article that describes the setup of "SNMP Library Sensors" and there's also a video that shows how to.
