Hi Ralf,

In addition to the previous answer, the speed could be monitored with your own custom script. The PowerShell command

Get-WmiObject -ComputerName 'servername' -Class Win32_NetworkAdapter | `
    Where-Object { $_.Speed -ne $null -and $_.MACAddress -ne $null } | `
    Format-Table -Property SystemName,Name,NetConnectionID,Speed

will list all adapters including the speed of the interface. The required syntax is documented on the Setup > PRTG API > Custom Sensors page.

Best regards, Felix

Did you already have a look at the Windows Network Card Sensor ?

Thanks

maybe i'm wrong, but the Network Card Sensor shows me not the connected speed of my networkcard. (like 10gb or 1 gb).

The second answer with WMI helps me to solve my Problem:

wql-File with: SELECT Speed FROM Win32_NetworkAdapter WHERE NetConnectionID ='<#PH1>'

<#PH1> = NetConnectionID (Show WMI-Script from Felix)

Thanks at all, regards, Ralf
