monitoring specific dongle




I would like to monitor a specific usb dongle used for a certification's service. The customized sensor developped by Gerard Feijth don't work in this case because it is not a storage usb device. Is it possible to monitor a specific VendorID or/and ProductID for a device with a windows OS (WMI)?

usb vendorid wmi

thank you very much for your KB-Post. I'm very much afraid this is not possible with PRTG's native sensors. But it should be possible to do this with Custom Sensors.

best regards,
