Measuring power consumption with LibreNMS?


We use LibreNMS to monitor Cisco, HP and Mikrotik hardware. I’m interested in the possibility of monitoring power consumption but can’t see a universal OID across multiple vendors.

I wondered if anyone is doing anything similar and if they could share their learnings before I spend ages researching.

Thanks in advance


You got it right. Power consumption is not exposed in an easy way across devices from a single vendor, and even worse between different vendors. So there is no standard way to get it.
Only option, manually select which Power Sensors make sense for you, and combine them in a dashboard. Also possible to manually create a graph summary of all devices, but this is a process that involves PHP code.
