Check sensor status



I am looking to do a project for my engineer room. I will be following the steps from the project below and need a little bit of guidance. Is there an easy way to poll the PRTG server to see if any sensors are in the down/warning/up state to adjust the light accordingly. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks, --- Will Fox

that should be possible, using the PRTG API (Live Data-Tab in the API-Documentation). Maybe using a script to query a list of sensors, and filtering by state. Then if more than 1 sensor is in error-state flash the red light, etc..

best regards.
