Will you develop the remote probe for Windows 10 IoT Core?



Windows 10 IoT Core runs a very limited subset of Win32 applications and I don't know of a way to get the existing remote probe to function on it. My goal is to be able to use Raspberry Pi devices to monitor my nation-wide network from various points. PRTG is an excellent monitoring platform and I really enjoy the ability to monitor so many different services and extract so many metrics from a variety of standpoints using the remote probes. I would love for you to extend this capability to Windows 10 IoT Core so that I could have inexpensive appliances to place around my network and be able to monitor things like how quickly a webpage loads or DNS responds from a different part of the country. Is this something you're either currently working on or planning to support in the future?

Currently there are no plans to develop a probe for Win 10 IoT. However, when you want to use a Raspberry, you might have a look at the Python Mini Probe over at GitHub.
Best regards

Hi, has anything changed on this topic meanwhile? Do you develop or plan to develop a "Remote Probe on Windows 10 IoT"?

While it's planned to make the Probe available on multiple platforms, there is no ETA or proof of concept of this, yet (i.e. we don't know if it actually works).

Kind regards,

I am also putting in my vote for a Windows IoT probe.

I am also putting in my vote for a Windows IoT PRTG. Can we get a new status?

Thank you!

Unfortunately, this topic hasn't advanced in the recent past due to other aspects of PRTG requiring our attiontion :( Sorry, still no ETA!
