I have a lot of custom scripts for Windows systems. Where can I share them?



I have written many scripts for custom sensors for Windows, Synology, and Cisco systems (CPU and GPU temperatures, HDD temperatures, PSU statistics, etc). Some of these scripts are quite advanced, and gather data that would otherwise be inaccessible to PRTG.

Is there any place on your website for users to browse other users' scripts, or to upload/share your own?

Good question. We've also created a couple of sensors that might be of use to others.

Sorry for the delay. There was an internal discussion about how to handle scripts/sensors written by customers.
We later will introduce a howto on making your custom sensors public here.
So please stay tuned.
Best regards

Hi all,

since the Paessler Knowlegde Base is the place where PRTG users and the Paessler team meet, you can share your self-written scripts/programs with all users and team writing a Knowledge Base article.

This is easy and fast. Just have a look at How can I share my self-written PRTG script/program with other PRTG users?.

If you upload a binary or script file to a third-party website, we recommend that you create a new Knowledge Base article where you describe your contribution and link to it. If possible, put a copy of your source in the article as well. This way you make sure that all users can find your script/program in the Paessler Knowledge Base.
