Hi there,

It appears the LiMa can output stuff into a logfile, which you could monitor then with a file content sensor maybe (?)

Kind regards,

Thanks a lot. It works.

A Task "D:\DATEV\PROGRAMM\SWS\LiMaStatus.exe -d +i C:\DatevLog\LiMa_Server_Status.txt" to generate a status log. and in PRTG a file content sensor "LizPool_konsistent=Ja" + a file sensor to get if the last status is to old.
