Monitoring result from Java updatechecker



Java update checker runs frequently jucheck.exe in %Javahome%\Java update. But there is only a popup window telling me if Java is up tp date or not. No entry in eventviewer or anything else. What I like to get is a PRTG sensor telling me if Java is up tu date or not. Can anyone help?

java prtg update

Dear AgentFred

A PRTG custom sensor relies on running a program which has no GUI output because it is started by the PRTG probe service which is a service without a GUI context. Therefore, there is no solution running that update checker directly with a custom sensor.
