Is there a way to get a list of all sensors for a device with the sensor's ID listed, too? If Channel numbers and names were listed as well it would be great, but not critical.

channel id sensor

Hello,

you could do this with the PRTG API, and for example the following call:

/api/table.xml?content=sensors&output=xml&columns=objid,device,sensor,status&id=13337

You would receive an XML-Output list with all sensors from the device with the ID 13337. Please go to Setup|PRTG API to review all options. Please also be sure to use the Query Builder there on the tab Live Data.

Best Regards

hallo,

which exact PRTG version are you using? In PRTG 12 in the web interface you need to go to Setup in the menu bar and there you can select PRTG-API

in version 9 look at the help section of PRTG. There should be a small question mark at the right top of the web interface. Click on it and you should be able to go from there.

We upgraded to version 12 but there's no PRTG-API under setup. Setup has overview, apps for phones, etc...just 3 items under it. How else can I get to the API to launch commands.

Thanks

Hi,
to access the API documentation, just append /api.htm to the URL of your PRTG installation, e.g. http://yourprtginstallation/api.htm .
Best regards

Thanks for this information. I still don't see how I can run API commands from PRTG but I now know how I can get a list of the device name from the web address. Here's a little issue.

The device name entries in my PRTG look like this:

Name of Device xxx:1234 (123.456.789.899)

some look like this:

Name of Device xxx:1234 (123.456.789.899)

where (123.456.789.899) is the IP address of that device.

When I ran the command: http://myprtg/api/table.txt?content=sensors&output=xml&columns=device&username=myusername&passhash=myhash

It returned all my device names.

Name of Device xxx:1234

However the IP address part was not listed.

How can I have the command to also list the IP address with the device names.

Thanks,

Alfred

Hi,
as PRTG only contains a HTML API the documentation is all what is needed. All API Calls against PRTG are made through URLs. To get a IP address associated to the device you may add the "host" parameter to your API call wich will cause PRTG to show either the IP address (if known) or the hostname. An example would be

http://myprtg/api/table.txt?content=sensors&output=xml&columns=device,host&username=myusername&passhash=myhash

I tried your suggestion, It gets the device name but it did not get the IP address in front of it. We put the IP address in from of the device name. example:

ABC company Dallas Tx Cisco:4200 (72.99.11.222) some look like this: ABC company Dallas Tx Cisco:4200 (72.99.11.222)

When I ran the command, I only got: ABC company Dallas Tx Cisco:4200

How can have the command grab the entire line or lines?

Thanks,

Alfred

One note: You must be administrator user in PRTG to be able to see the API section in the Help Menu.

Sorry, it is not possible to get the IP/Hostname of a device on a table-sensors call.
