PoE usage Data

Hello,

 

does anybody know a method to retreive the PoE usage on a given port?

I've tried it over cloud snmp and device snmp, but I wasn't able to find a matching oid.

 

For sure I know that the meraki rest api isn't providing that information.

Do you mean outside the dashboard?

Re: PoE usage Data

Exactly.

I want to monitor the PoE usage of the ports.

Re: PoE usage Data

I don't think there is anyway to do this.

Re: PoE usage Data

The summary report will give you the total power usage in KWH for POE switches but it doesn't go as far as breaking it down per port.

Re: PoE usage Data

The earlier replies are correct and you'll need to look at this info either at an individual port level in somewhat real time, or aggregated in a summary report.  That info is not syslogged or event logged for example.  And unfortunately there is no API call today that will return the instantaneous PoE power draw on a port by port basis either.  There are however errors for PoE overload and warnings for PoE power being denied. 

 

Curious, since it would be a ton of data, what is the use case for needing to track instantaneous PoE usage port by port?  Or perhaps it's more about alerting?  Perhaps the feature request would be to add an alert on the Network-Wide > Alerts page to have an alert if a port is denied PoE power, so you could start being alerted if a switch is over budget and some devices cannot get power.

Re: PoE usage Data

At the moment it's more for statistical reasons and personal interest. I don't need to track it instantaneous. It would be enough to have the value which is in the dashboard (which gets updated every 1-2 minutes I think). I would pull the data every 1-5 minutes.

From the API side we currently have GET/devices/{serial}/switchPortStatuses which is currently providing most of the statistical data (e.g. TX/RX, CDP, ... ). PoE is just missing here.
