i'm using Vbscript as "exe custom sensor". i would like to know if there is an option to configure PRTG to Value limit error and Send the Vbscript output message as "Down" message instead of PRTG default messages ?

Hi,
you usually can define your own limits for the sensor using the "Enable Limits" setting on the Channels tab of the sensor. You can also set own Warning and Error messages there but I'm afraid the return value of the script cannot be used.
Best regards

Thanks for your reply. it can be a great feature for us (and for many other people i guess)

for this time it leaves me only 2 custom messages (warning message and the error message)

Hi,
we will place the inquiry on the wishlist for future releases. But please note that there is no guarantee if or when this feature will be implemented.
Best regards
