Registry Hkey_Performance_Data



Hi Guy , I'm trying to use the registry sensor to monitor the status and the qos of my isdn connection. I know that i can use the hkey_performance_data registry but i'm a little in trouble to find the correct keyname and value name. Is there any way to browse the registry in PRTG to select the correct entry ? best regards

thank you very much for your KB-Post. I'm very sorry, it's not possible to browse the registry in PRTG. Please try getting the name from the normal regedit.exe

best regards.

Hello , that is my problem. I can't use regedit to browse the Hkey_Performance_Data. If there is a possibility to create a funtion to browse this kind of registry will be great.

Thanks for the answer . I've found another solution for my problem using a "PerfCounter Custom" sensor. Maybe is the best way to control the status and qos of the isdn modem line in my server. Best regards
