Trigger another sensor (script).




I want to create a scheme, where sensor status will run (trigger) a linux command (script).

Example: I have a "SNMP Custom Table" sensor which control some parameters on a Linux server and when it's goes to "Down" state this sensor run a script or command on the remote Linux server.

Which way is more simple for this?

linux script sensor snmp
