PRTG Custom Sensor - Run script on Ping Up




First attempt at getting a custom sensor setup. I have a device in PRTG that i currently monitor for ping. Occasionally the Ping will go into a Down state, when it returns to the Up state i want to run a script i have written.

How do i apply this script to run on this Down > Up Status change?

Hi there,

For this you need to create a notification in "Setup | Account Settings | Notifications" where you can select that a script should be executed ("EXECUTE PROGRAM" is what you need to enable in it).

Kind regards,
