Automation task




I use PRTG for monitoring my servers. I know PRTG is built around sensors, but I wonder if I can use PRTG for automating scripts? What i would like to accomplish, is to automate scripts (schedule) on some servers at a special time.. Is this possible?

Hello there,

Thank you for your KB post.

Perhaps you could use our EXE/Script Sensor or the EXE/Script Advanced Sensor for this. Maybe you can also use the Custom Notifications to execute a program.

Kind regards,
