How to integrate live data on downtimes in maps?



We want to use PRTG Network Monitor to showcase availability to stakeholders within our company. Therefore I am looking for a way to show live data on downtime for devices/single sensors in a short, textual format like e.g.:

- Date,time and duration of last down status

- Time passed since last outage

Preferably, I want to display Info like this in a live view like in the maps feature. So far I didn't find the right objects within maps designer to provide me with these or similar statements. Does somebody know how to achieve this? Thanks in advance for you support.

I'm afraid in the moment there is no map-object to show this. Sorry.

best regards.

Any chance that using the API can get something like this?

It should be possible to gather information like:

		<![CDATA[40511.5501967593[20 s ago]]]>
		<![CDATA[40511.5407662153[13 m 55 s ago]]]>

Please see "Setup"->"PRTG API"->"Live Data".
