Can you advice on custom EXE sensor script? - Problem with integer out

With a custom EXE it looks like PRTG only accepts 5 outputs with descriptions attached.

Is there anyway to have it accept any integer or another way to accomplish what I need.

I have a custom built exe that pulls total customers at our retail location every minute. I need to get that data into PRTG for graphing and logging purposes.

I can get the data anywhere I need in a range of formats, I just need some help getting it into PRTG.

Thanks

Please have a look at the Custom EXE Sensor documentation:

http://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg7/api_for_custom_exe_sensors.htm

You can supply a "value" in the returned text before the ":".

>With a custom EXE it looks like PRTG only accepts 5 outputs with descriptions attached.

Do not mix up "EXEcutable Return codes" and the "value" that you can supply in your output!

Thanks, I just ran into that, it looks like I need to take a second look at my script.

Thanks
