Hello, I found an article on how to do this on a Windows server with a custom sensor, however nothing on Linux (DebianOS) side.

Any help on how I can best monitor if a USB dongle disconnects from a linux system? We do have some dongles which seem to have random disconnects so we would like to monitor that

Many thanks in advance

debian disconnect usb

Hello there and thank you for your inquiry.

There is no built-in sensor capable of this. But from PRTG's perspective, if this information is somehow made available via SNMP, it should be possible to monitor it with one of the available Custom SNMP Sensors.

If should be possible to extend the SNMP implementation of net-snmp to run a bash script for example. Please refer to:
