Network Interface (Switch Port) State Monitoring

The program can monitor state of a network device's interface (switch port) using the SNMP protocol. The port state can be monitored using the OID (ifOperStatus). This parameter can have several possible values depending on the network interface state. The normal operating condition value is up(1). The program generates an alert if current network interface state is not equal to up.

To configure the check you will need the following:

  1. The device should support the SNMP protocol.
  2. The SNMP access password is required (the community string or username/password for SNMPv3)
  3. Receive the list of available interfaces in the program and select one of them for the state monitoring.


Requirements: Windows XP/Vista/7/8.1/10/11, Server 2003/2008/2012/2016/2019/2022 supported.
