SNMP or other solution for monitoring XGS1210-12 ?

Hi, I just acquired 2 XGS1210-12 switches. It's a very good product with a very good quality/price ratio, but it's a shame not to have any solution to monitor it.

Apart from the web interface, it's not possible to use an external monitoring solution (nagios, zabbbix, prometheus...) to get information about the switch status, or to get traffic statistics.
Do you think you will bring these features one day via a firmware update?

Thanks

    Hi @bvivi57 ,

    First of all, thanks for choosing XGS1210 for your network.

    XGS1210 desktop switches are intended for Home/SOHO users with just a few other networking devices in their network.
    A simple management tool such as web GUI is sufficient to setup such network easily for most cases.

    As external monitoring tools are mostly used for small-medium networks, SNMP feature is supported by more advanced Smart Managed Switches such as the GS1900 series.
    Hence, there’s currently no plan to add this to the desktop Switch series for now.
