Only one channel in advanced sensor somewhy.



Greetings! I have a sensor that monitors a state of RAID controller and Virtual disks. It makes output like this:

<channel>PERC Status</channel>
<channel>Virtual Disk sys</channel>
<channel>Virtual Disk bu</channel>

The same i see with "Write exe results to disk" My problem is that i can see only one channel "PERC Status" in PRTG, there is no others at sensor's page and settings page. This is my first powershell sensor, there was not such a problem with .net sensors.

I'm very curious. What could be a possible reason of this?

Greetings! Thank you for your KB-post.

There's a slight syntax issue. Each <channel><value> should be enclosed by a <result> (you're only opening <result> at the top and closing it at the end, like the <prtg> tag), please refer to this example for the correct syntax.

Fore more information, see PRTG Manual: Custom Sensors.
