How can someone add a sensor to monitor disk I/O in Linux?
There are only 2 answers using WMI for Windows but nothing for Linux and this post here: https://kb.paessler.com/knowledgebase/en/topic/36813-how-to-monitor-disk-latency-on-a-linux-server
Seems more like a hack. If we need to create custom scripts then why would you even need PRTG in the first place to do the job....
I have another open source monitoring system and I can add disk measurements just fine. With PRTG I can only use free space, swap, etc, only sensors related to very basic usage. Nothing that will measure disk performance which is kind of odd. It seems nothing related to monitoring drives in Linux can be added or maybe I can´t find this sensors.
Drives are an important part in any IT infrastructure as they tend to be the slowest equation in servers and with most problems, so sensors for drives should be a high priority.
