Thank you very much for your KB-Post. Currently this is not possible with PRTGs inbuilt sensors, we do have this one the wish list though, and your vote was just counted. Please bear with us.

best regards.

I would love to see this (and per datastore latency / IO as well)! i was very surprised this is not already possible in prtg v18.
