Dear Sven,

monitoring XEN-Systems is not available in PRTG Network Monitor 7.

However, for PRTG 8 a XEN-Sensor is planned, please have a look at the beta-page: https://www.paessler.com/prtg8beta (Please also feel free to give the beta a test-drive!).

Best Regards.

I hope you take into account the suggestions I made once for Xen monitoring and those are implemented in version 8. Currently using SNMP inside machines is not a very good solution. The XEN monitoring should be directly from the Node using Xen API to gather reports. A user can just disable SNMP inside a machine and you will have no reports.
