I monitor a website that is served through a load balancer and a pool of web-servers. When i see a problem (the request times out) i have no idea which web-server is having problems.

I would like to do one of these 2 things:

1) pass a cookie with the request (example "SRV=web12" ) so the request goes to a specific webserver.

2) display the value of the cookie that the load balancer passes back to PRTG

Are either of these possible?

Hi,
I'm afraid the HTTP Sensor in PRTG do not support interacting with cookies.
Best regards

Are there other sensors that would allow logging of a cookie value in a channel?

Hi,
you might try writing a own script which then can be run with either the EXE/Script or the EXE/Script Advanced sensor.
Best regards
