Does PRTG support notifications via Telalert?



Does PRTG 8 have the ability to alert using telalert? If not, are there plans for telalert in the future?

With PRTG you can define notifications in various ways.

  • There is the option Execute Program. This will run an external program which you can use to call an application which initiates sending messages via external software or appliances.
  • There is also the possibility to Execute HTTP Action which can also control other applications.

Whether or not you can use Telalert software or appliances with PRTG depends on the interfaces provided by the vendor. Please check with MIR3 directly.

Once you know more, other users will certainly be interested to hear about this in this knowledge base topic.

Unable to get PRTG to run .bat file for same command. I can put in the command, for execute program, as follows: execute program: telalertc.exe parameter: -host alertsvr -i mgrossemail -m "[%sitename] %device %name %status %down (%message)" If I paste the same command into a alert.bat file and set the execute program to: execute program: alert.bat - it will not run. Note: the telalertc.exe is in the "program files\prtg network monitor\notifications\exe" folder and I put the folder path in the system path statement.

Any ideas?

Does the EXE in case open a window?

telnetc.exe is a command line program with the server and addressee parameters. PRTG will run the program and parameters, but not from batch file. It does not open a window.
