I have 6 'regular' switches here from 5 to 16 ports and none of them have IP addresses.  Not really needed since there are no options to set or get.

Very simple: no.

It's not manageable and not layer 3 for that matter.  Non manageable switches just keep arp tables for fast switching (simply put) and that's about it.

That's what I figured
Percona Monitoring and Management and Grafana

Proactive monitoring is vital to a highly-available environment. We have a quick start guide on Experts Exchange for Grafana users.
