Monitor temperature with SSH

Is there a way to monitor a Linux machine temperature using an SSH script? Currently to get the temperature I use this command.

/opt/vc/bin/vcgencmd measure_temp

This command will return this:

temp=51.4'C

Any way I can use this with PRTG SSH?

Thanks

linux ssh-script temperature

If you put this into an SSH script and put it into the directory that PRTG looks for scripts in, you will be able to set up an SSH Sensor with that script. The only thing that you will need to change is to format the result into a PRTG readable XML format. You can see more about how to set up this formatting under Setup->PRTG API.
