All replication information is stored in tables on your SQL server. for example

SELECT COUNT (*) FROM [distribution].[dbo].[MSmerge_subscriptions]
WHERE status <> 0

returns the number of replications with an error.

Write you own stored procedure that returns the data you are looking for and parse the date to PRTG using PRTG's SQL sensor or Custom Sensor SQLspXML that can parse a multi channel result to PRTG
