Hello Eden,

Thank you for your message.

To monitor the SMB service on your device, I invite you to have a look at the following KB articles which provide examples of scripts and indications which might be helpful here: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/39513-is-there-a-shell-script-example-for-the-ssh-script-sensor https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/29403-monitoring-processes-in-linux

Please, note that we do not officially provide support for customizations. The modification, update and usage of the scripts/indications are up to you.
