I want to add a SSH Load Average sensor for a Amazon EC2 Linux instance. I use a key file to log into the instance. Login with user name/password is disabled. I´ve not found a place to configure a key file in PRTG. Isn't it possible? If yes, please let me know how to setup the credentials.

Thanks.

Best.

Andreas

Update: Using private keys for SSH sensors is possible since PRTG 13. See this article for details:

Sorry, currently authentication via key is not possible. It's on the wishlist, but I cannot give you an ETA.

This seems like a pretty big limitation in monitoring AWS instances. Is there no public roadmap for PRTG available?

As Daniel said: We are working on it.

Our policy regarding new features that may or may not come in future versions is to only talk about features that are officially available as beta or release versions. It would not help you if we tell you now features X and Z are coming March 2nd and then - because of some unforeseen problems - we did not make it in the end. Software development does have its pitfalls.... So we only talk about stuff that's already done and ready to use for you.
