Fully integrated custom sensor



I've developed a custom exe sensor that returns information on several channels, and it works perfectly. The monitoring configuration is done via command line, and it also works perfectly.

However, I'd like to include this sensor in the "default" list of PRTG sensors, and allow configuring it via web forms, as you do with any of the included PRTG sensors. That would make it much easier to setup the sensor for PRTG users that having to guess what the command name is, what command line parameters need to be supplied, and so on. I've searched the KB and the documentation but I didn't find any information. Is it possible to do this?

Unfortunately, that's not possible. Sorry :/ You could use Metascans within your EXE sensors, though :)
