Can you provide trouble shooting for SNMP sensors that are not working?



Dear Parsselor,

I have PRTG N/W Monitor installed for monitoring my Critical devices at Workplace.

Initially when I installed, every thing was working fine. Almost 60-70 SNMP Sensors were up. then One bad day I formatted my Monitoring Server and Reinstalled the same PRTG N/W Monitor.

But now by all efforts of mine, Only PING Sensors are Up and not any other sensor.

Please Suggest me possible trouble shooting,

you could try using our SNMP-Tester to see if the SNMP communication is at least possible: How can I test the functionality of my SNMP device?

Best Regards.
