Hi there,

This depends on the operating system of the mainframe servers and which protocols are supported. If the devices are capable of SNMP, you can use the manufacturer's MIB file to create sensors within PRTG.

For more detailed information on SNMP and a step by step guide which includes screenshots, please have a look here: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/65638
