Custom sensor for my own exe



Hi, i have a c# net core console app which processes IOT data When its running, I can see a print out on screen of the stats for each min i.e. Number of records received Number of API calls Highest ms API time Lowest ms API time Average API response time

I would like to plot these to a graph and have alerts enabled when stuff hits a threshold Is this possible? and do you have any guides?

Alternatively I was looking at grafana to do this

If you can create a powershell script which is able to pull the desired information, then you can create the Exe/Script Advanced Sensor to monitor the values in PRTG. You can find more information about this sensor here.
