I tryied this solution: https://www.paessler.com/knowledgebase/en/topic/14803-how-can-prtg-send-instant-messages-to-jabber-icq-msn-yahoo-etc-using-external-software

Everytime I get a message I receive it multiple times, here is an example on jabber:

prtg (16:07:28 23/11/2011) PRTG Network Monitor (PRTG-Monitor) AK Ping 33 (Ping) Fehler Request timed out (ICMP-Fehler # 11010) prtg (16:07:43 23/11/2011) PRTG Network Monitor (PRTG-Monitor) AK Ping 33 (Ping) Ok (Ausfallzeit: 0 Sek.) OK prtg (16:07:52 23/11/2011) PRTG Network Monitor (PRTG-Monitor) AK Ping 33 (Ping) Fehler Request timed out (ICMP-Fehler # 11010) prtg (16:08:43 23/11/2011) PRTG Network Monitor (PRTG-Monitor) AK Ping 33 (Ping) Ok (Ausfallzeit: 0 Sek.) OK prtg (16:09:27 23/11/2011) PRTG Network Monitor (PRTG-Monitor) AK Ping 33 (Ping) Fehler Request timed out (ICMP-Fehler # 11010) prtg (16:09:43 23/11/2011) PRTG Network Monitor (PRTG-Monitor) AK Ping 33 (Ping) Ok (Ausfallzeit: 0 Sek.) OK

That happens when I plug out the computer "AK". 3 Errors und 3 OKs.

When I run my command in CMD, I get only one.

Is this known issuse?

Thanks!

Hello,

have you read the following part in the article:

Known Issues

With the command line tool version used, messages might be sent triple (one per minute), although only triggered once. This is because the command line tool does not give back an exit code 0. You can work around this by creating a batch file calling the command line tool with the respective options, then terminating with

EXIT 0

In PRTG you will then use the batch file instead of the command line tool directly.
