Advance script and Limitmode



Hi I have a Powershelscript that monitor a SAN system. A portion of the XML output, seen here .:

Unfixed errors in the system

My problem is that I would like to have defined DOWN message when the value is 2 or higher than 0. I have also tried with

</ Warning>

Instead of <Down>, in my script. When set to Warning, then comes the script fine with a warning, but the channel is still green. In PRTG is this channel value shown correctly, like 2.

How can I best define a DOWN message in my script.?

down exexml limits

Hello, thank you for your inquiry.

Please note that there is no <down> </down> tag within PRTG. It also seems that you've used <LimitMinError> which defines a lower error limit for the channel. For an upper error limit you must use <LimitMaxError>.

Please take a look into the following post as it describes a similar situation/case.

The complete documentation for Custom Sensors can be found within PRTG under Setup > PRTG API > (Custom Sensors) tab.

Best Regards,
