Not super-featured, but works well for what it is made for. I wish there was hardware monitoring (fan + temp), but who knows... maybe it's just not possible, the other options don't either. I am using a stack of 5 Dell Powerconnect 5548 switches.

I was curious how to check the ports on anything after the first switch and, through trial an error, I figured it out. It separates each switch in the stack by 2.

So I made a formula. Assume that s = switch number in stack and p = port number on that switch. Calculate t by adding your total number of numbered ports (count on front plus SFP if you have them) and add 2 to this number. Solve for n, port you want to watch.

n = ((s * t) - t) + p

So, and I'm only assuming this works on other models, I have 5 48-port switches with 2 SFP+ ports each, plus the two spacers... for me, t = 52. Let's say I want to select port 31 on switch 4:

n = ((4 * 52) - 52) + 31
n = 187

Good luck!
