In EXE/Script advanced sensors may I use special tags in output XML?



In my vbs script, can I put in the output XML more advanced tags like: <limitmaxerror>90</limitmaxerror> inside a <data> fields?

I examined file named "PRTG configuration.dat" to take inspiration..

I created an XML output that works fine and it would be nice to make more automatic the channel configuration!

Thanks as usual!

Dear Gianluca,

only the in the documentation listed fields will work, as only they are sent from core to probe.

Best Regards.
