Need to extract XML data



I cannot figure out how to get the <hits> values from the following XML using the XML/REST sensor. I tried "webconnectionconfig comservers server hits" but I'm just getting errors:

<version>Web Connection 5.42 (ISAPI)</version>
... etc


node rest xml

please try:


If you want the hits from one certain serverid (fitered), or


if you want the first hist-filed of the XML-Document.

best regards.

Perfect! Thanks! Is there a way for me to show all 4 'hit' values as different 'channels' so they all show up on one sensor? That is, to show all 'hits' values in the xml in the same sensor?

Sorry, that would require for such sensors, each filtering for a different server ID.
