Thank you for your message.

If you want to submit a feature request for such sensor, please follow the procedure described in this KB article: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/79245-how-can-i-propose-new-features-or-sensors-for-prtg

Otherwise, as mentioned in the KB artcile you linked, you can use the SSH Script sensors to execute a script which gets the information you desire. Please, make sure to follow the structure mentioned in this manual to return information in PRTG.

Kind regards.
