SUN Solaris CPU SSH Monitor



Hi - Trailing the PRTG and I am finding it is closing alot of issues we previously had with other network management systems.

The last item we need to have working is the monitoring for SUN Solaris CPU and MEM via either SNMP MIB OID - OR - SSH.

I have seen from a previous post the current systems you support and also a post from a user offering to help PRTG to write a SSH script.

Has there been any movement on this ? It really would be the final piece we are looking for to allow complete migration to PRTG.

Did you already try the SNMP Linux sensors?

Yes - No Luck.

I was hoping to use a SSH custom type command ?

I'm afraid SSH CPU sensors do not work with Solaris / SUN OS.

What precisely is the issue with the SNMP option?
