How to make Alarm for interface Up/Down on Cisco Pi 1.3?

Dear all,

Could anyone please tell me how to monitor only some Uplink ports on C2960S, C3750X on Cisco PI 1.3?

I would like to receive the Alarm in case one of my critical ports is down.

Using syslog seem be inconvenient because it makes alarm for all ports.

Have you tried to configure an port group?

Perhaps this works.

Did you mean using the SNMP to monitor the group of ports?

I used the default interface health monitoring of Cisco PI 1.3, that included:

- Interface availability

- Interface input/output utilization/error/discard ...

However, it only show the availability percent of ports and port utilization,...

it did not make alarm when port down?

could you explain more details?


Yes, i meant that.

I've tried to create an port group and deploy template, but I had no success

I'll keep trying to find a way, if I get something, I'll let you know.

Actually, when you monitor Interface availability, it only provides Availability percent of ports (Ex: 25% uptime, 75% downtime)

If you want to monitor up/down status of ports, use IF-MIB with IfOperStatus and IfAdminStatus Objects.

However, for PI, it did not works.

Anyone help?


Hello Guys,

I have this problem here too, i need to monitor only trunk ports in my access switches, not all.

I receive some e-mails alarms because the up/down ports...

Anyone can help us?

Tks in advance!


Can somebody confirm that the Interface Availability parameter in the default monitoring policy of WAN interfaces does not raise any alarms?
