PRTG Integration with UNIX



I have an old Unix system here that is running an old version of MFG Pro, I was wondering if its possible to leverage PRTG to look at system resources and other items from that unix machine and the MFG Pro install?

I am in the process of justifying spend to purchase this product, having used PRTG in my previous company it would make a better justification piece if the product was capable of this.

please check out the following article to see what PRTG is able to monitor in terms of Unix/Linux-Systems: Which Linux or Mac OS distributions are supported by the Linux/Unix sensors (SSH, SNMP, WBEM)?
Apart from this you probably have to use scripts running as Custom Script Sensors in PRTG to monitor other 'counters'.

Best regards.
