How to add channel to SSH Disk Free Sensor?



Can I monitor some additional mount points such as /u01 via SSH Disk Free Sensor? I can see only predefined channels - root, /stand, /var, /opt, /usr, /tmp and cannot find the "Add channel" button...

Can I write some shell script like "df -h | grep /u03 | awk '{print $2}' " and execute it via PRTG?

Yes, this should be possible with the EXE/Script Sensor or EXE/Script Advanced Sensor.
