My EXE Sensor doesn't fire a change trigger!



In my EXE Sensors, when Change trigger is enabled and when content changes, I'm used to see a system string like "(result changed..)" near new result, and I expect the notification configured.. In my new EXE sensor, the "Result" and "Message" change simultaneously for example from: "0:attivo su sctipcsdmdba" to: "1:attivo su sctipcsdmdbb" ..but nothing happens!

What things I've to look for?

Thanx again! Gianluca

which exact version of PRTG do you use? Do you have a Notification configure in the Change trigger of the Exe Sensor? Do other notifications generally work?

Best Regards.

A value-change triggers the change trigger.
