Monitoring box.com free space




I was wondering if it is possible to monitor the free space of a service such as box.com.

I can mount a drive via webdav to box.com but not sure how/if this can be approached with PRTG reliably.

there are no native sensors in PRTG for box.com. Sorry.
However, as they are providing an extensive API and documentation you might write an own script which monitors the free space and run the same using the EXE/Script or EXE/Script Advanced Sensor of PRTG.
Best regards

Ok, I will look at the Box API to do this.

A sensor for Box.com will be added to the "Cloud Sensor" range at PRTGToolsFamily.com

The "Cloud Sensor" range consists in sensors for DropBox, SkyDrive and GoogleDrive. The Box.com sensor is currently in beta test and will be public available beginning 2014.

This would be perfect. Is it too late to join the beta? I have several cloud services to monitor.

The Box sensor is now available for download at http://www.prtgtoolsfamily.com/?page=downloads_sensorsxml.

You will need the SDBToken.exe tool to generate an access token for the sensor.
