since upgrading to PRTG8, when i add a unix server (ubuntu) with SNMP as device, i only get the open services as sensors (HTTP, FTP etc) - in PRTG7 i got around 20 system sensors over SNMP.

also, how to get and install the new native linux sensors? the manual is "under construction".

linux sensors snmp

Hello,

the SNMP-Engine was not changed from PRTG 7 to PRTG 8. Please make sure that the proper SNMP Options (Version, Community String etc.) are used. The new native SSH Linux Sensors are in PRTG 8 already available, simply enter the appropriate credentials in the settings (of a group or device) and then add a SSH-Sensor to a device in PRTG (which is a Linux box).

Best Regards.

ok, i got it right to the " add a SSH-Sensor to a device in PRTG (which is a Linux box)." part. i was under the impressin that you need to install a special daemon on the target device.

the reason that i didn't get results i this particular case was, that ubuntu 8.04 LTS has not implemented WBEM yet. 10.04 LTS should work.
