Capturing Information in Command Lines




Currently I make captures of information, using commands on a server and an agent, separates the information and rescues, just the field (line / position) that I need.

How can I do this in the PRTG?

Thank you.

Dear sandroalves,

custom programs or scripts can be run via the Exe/Script sensor. If you want to return multiple channel values, please use the Exe/Script Advanced version.

The program or script has to output the processed data in a PRTG compatible format. That XML or JSON structure is described in the PRTG API documentation.
