just want to share this knowledge after troubleshooting.
i had installed a monitoring station on a window box and intend to use the above monitor to capture some data statistics from a bat file that is calling a ssh to a remote linux server to execute a bash script to return a value. this implementation will not require any agent
on the custom monitor with data retention
put the bat file on c:program filesuptimescripts
this file d:uptimemrtgcheckremedy will contain the interger value of the statisitics you want to collect
Run a scheduled job on data collection that does the following :
ssh nodeA /opt/scripts/checkremedy.sh > d:uptimemrtgcheckremedy
