Hi Pierrot,

Historic data (to calculate the average on) can be retrieved with the /api/historicdata.xml API call. This call however can only be done for one sensor at the time (processing multiple sensors at the same time would cause a too heavy load on the PRTG server). For more information, see PRTG Manual: Historic Data.

So, after extracting your sensors into the xml table, you will need to retrieve the average values one by one.
