Additional to creating reports, you can export raw sensor monitoring data to XML or CSV files. This enables you to process data in external software, e.g. create your own charts in Excel, etc.

Data can be exported in a sensor's Historic Data tab, or using HTTP requests via the PRTG API.

For detailed information about the options please see manual section Data Reporting.
