Hi Miethana

Hmm. What do you want to monitor exactly? I think the ssh sensor would be the right thing for you

https://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg/ssh_script_sensor and https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/39513-is-there-a-shell-script-example-for-prtg-s-ssh-script-sensor

Hi Miethana

Yes, but what do you want to monitor exactly. I mean it's easy possible to check if something has changed, but you have to use a bash script for this as well.

Wouldn't it be easier to just create multiple ssh scripts and then check e.g. database usage, get a returnvalue and compare that with a value in PRTG? motd is usually just pure text, and extract the needed info from it is hard to achieve.

Explain more detailed what you want to know from your linuxmachine and I may can help you create a script which returns the values you need.
