Monitor PostgreSQL process on Linux?




I would like to monitor a PostgreSQL server running on CentOS Linux. From what I understood so far the ADO SQL Sensor will work only with a Windows device - is that correct? If not, please point me to the documentation on how to achieve that.

there are three options:

1.) Use the ADO SQL sensor with the psqlODBC driver


ODBC Driver: http://www.postgresql.org/ftp/odbc/versions/

2.) Write a script sensor

You can use the many examples out there and adjust it to PRTG style (see the API guide)


3.) PostgreSQL sensor


Apparently, this sensor does not exist anymore in the latest release !?!

The PostgreSQL-Sensor will be available in stable builds as of version 14.x.12. Currently it's only available in Preview-Builds (which is why there is a manual chapter for it already). Please bear with us.
