Will Custom Sensors from the Google Code project also work with PRTG 8?



I'm using some sensors from the Google Code project with PRTG 7. Will they still work with PRTG 8?

All Custom Sensors are now compiled for PRTG 8 and continued at this page.

What is changed?

  • All Custom Sensors now have unified errorhandling and help.
  • The username (-u) and password (-p) parameters have become optional for some sensors as PRTG 8 allows you to run a Custom Sensor with elevated credentials.
  • Most Custom Sensors are still backwards compatible with PRTG 7.


The notification tools like the TrayNotifier and the Gadgets are also compiled for PRTG 8 and can be found here
