I am pretty new to this whole Dashboard thing and want to know if its possible to manage a PoE-Switch, in particular the ports of it, through Node-RED. So as an example simply turning on and off the PoE-Supply on certain ports when a button is pressed on the Dashboard.
I got a Aruba 1830 PoE-Switch. The PoE-supply is manageable through its web interface but I couldn't find a way to integrate that into my dashboard.
Furthermore I would like to display the current wattage from the switch. In the web Interface of that switch is exactly this displayed, so I just need to transfer that on to my dashboard.
I really hope there is a solution for my problems!
Either of those might be easier than trying to manipulate the web interface.
Bottom line is that Node-RED provides the tools all right but unfortunately there is no way round having to dig through the UI code for clues.
Yeah, I found out yesterday... it can be really painfull. But okay, I guess that is the best way for managing the switch.
The only concern I have is that in the Specsheet of my switch SNMP is listed as an option but only with a read authorization. So I guess I cant turn off the PoE on specific ports, right?
Cause when I want to do that I need to change the value of some lines in the table. Or am I wrong?
