I know that you have answered that currently you cannot run a PRTG probe on Linux yet and that within the Beta 8 version additional methods are available to monitor Linux OS systems.
However, about six months ago, I asked about the Linux Probe capability and your support team indicated that maybe, just maybe, that would be available in the 4th QTR 2010. You did not promise a Linux Probe would be available, but indicated that it might.
We are a Managed Services Provider and currently have to deploy a Win32 server at our client's site for the sole purpose of running the PRTG Probe. This is very expensive to do. We are currently managing thousands of sensors on systems all across the continental United States.
We don't use the customer's Win32 servers for our PRTG probe because of network security compliance issues that they (our customer) mandates, and that by doing so, the customer may experience interoperability issues with other software running on their servers.
Also, several of our customers are government type organizations, therefore, we cannot install the probe software on any of their systems.
We desperately need a Linux version of the Probe software so that we can embed it into a Linux based security appliance to reduce our costs and provide a "Hands-Off" approach to collecting the performance data.
Do you have any realistic idea when a Linux probe will be available, if ever?
Your Product is absolutely the best we have ever worked with.
