Problems using ssh sensors



Hi support team,

I've running a AIX 5.3 machine and used a SSH sensor for monitoring hdd capacity. It works quite well but for some reason the two sensors for monitoring memory and load balancing aren't working as they can't process PRTG's command.

I've found a similar problem, see this post: https://www.paessler.com/knowledgebase/en/topic/56943-failure-when-set-ssh-script-sensor-in-aix-5-3

How can I add working sensors for AIX 5.3? This would be an important point as we have several machines to monitor.

Thanks in advance. Kind regards, Stefi

Sorry but the problem is based on the SSH-deamon of AIX 5.3, please try to update the deamon or you need to use SNMP to collect the values.

Please see this post of the developer of the sensor: AIX SSH problem
