Hello Derek, I was able to do this with an Custom WBEM/WIM Script. I described it in this Thread: https://kb.paessler.com/knowledgebase/en/topic/17503-implementing-python-script#reply-51893

Thanks Andreas, I appreciate the script and will definately make a note of it. However it is not what I was looking for.

I am looking for a way to monitor the hardware on an HP Proliant server such as the fan speeds, hard drive failures, etc.

There was a partial sensor created, but it is incomplete.

Sorry I wasn't more specific in my request.

It would be great if this functionality was a standard part of PRTG though.

Sensors are now included but not yet rolled out in the stable versions (might have changed though): https://kb.paessler.com/knowledgebase/en/topic/40463-monitoring-hardware-status-like-for-example-hp-sim
