SSH to device, run command, record results

I am trying to monitor an Arris C4 CMTS, specifically the "show interface utilization" command. This isn't a true "Linux" box, so I cannot install scripts on it. I'm thinking it will have to be run as an exe/dll script from the PRTG server, but I have not idea where to begin.

Essentially, I need to SSH to the CMTS, run the command, parse the output, combine, and graph the results. I am really only concerned with the first column (Port), and the respective "Loaded %" Column"; would love to combine and average on "Cable-Mac" column for column 5 and 7, but independently.

Can anyone help me?

Thanks! Spencer

Dear spencerjones,

in order to use an SSH Custom sensor, the script has to be put onto the target. Otherwise, the SSH connection has to be done via a custom script on the PRTG probe. The result parsing probably would be done with splitting the result lines on white spaces.
