Support for AIX Systems



Hello, I'd like to monitor a service of an AIX System. Does the current version of PRTG support AIX Systems for example via SSH?

Hi mw-twol,

PRTG has no native SSH Service Sensor at the moment. However, you can use the SSH Script Sensor and a custom script to monitor the service at your AIX System.
