Is there a way to load the paepy module in PRTG v with Python 3.7?



I have a custom python script that was written to use the paepy module to format values properly. When it was written, PRTG used Python 3.4 and a simply "pip install paepy" would do the trick.

Trying that with the current version, I get the following error:

ERROR: Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement paepy (from versions: none) ERROR: No matching distribution found for paepy

Was the paepy module dropped?

Hi atvedge,

Please try to add the following code to your script:

For importing pae libs:

from prtg.sensor.result import CustomSensorResult
from prtg.sensor.units import ValueUnit

For channel definition:

csr.add_channel(name="Response Time", value=4711, unit=ValueUnit.TIMERESPONSE)
