I've inherited a group of sensors and I'd like to audit what they measure and I was hoping there was a way to download all the data into a usable format like excel etc. Is there way to export that information?

export prtg sensors

This can be done with PTF.CSVExport

CSVExport by default gets yesterdays data for the given sensors. Adding CSVExport to your Windows task scheduler can give you multiple export files (one for every sensor that you supply) in the folder of your choice every day. Adding CSVExport as a custom sensor to your PRTG Server can do the same thing.

The tool can be downloaded from this page

Hello,

you could try exporting a list of the sensors using the PRTG API (in your PRTG go to "Setup"->"PRTG API"->"Live Data"), but probably the best way to check what the sensors are actually doing is to view them in the Webinterface or the WinGUI.

best regards.
