Monitor AFP on OS X machine




I would like to make sure AFP is running on a OS X fileserver. Possible to monitor this with PRTG?

Hi Tony and Noah,

PRTG can't use AFP shares, only standard SMB-based shares. That would require creating a custom-script sensor that checks the "status" of the share and reports that status into PRTG according to our Custom Sensor's API definition. For more information, see PRTG Manual: Custom Sensors.

Best regards.
