Using Delta (Counter) with Non-Valid Integers



I'm monitoring a device which is returning a value containing a decimal point. It is counting as an integer but always has a ".0" at the end. Is there any way to change the "PRTG Configuration.dat" file to force this sensor to count the delta value? The values are 1.0 then 2.0 then 3.0 etc.

I'm sorry, this is not possible, you may be able to do this with a Custom Script sensor (that stores the last result in a text-file or similar and then calculates the delta itself) though.

best regards.

Is there any documentation about Creating a "Custom Script" sensor?

In the manual: EXE/Script Sensor and EXE/Script Advanced Sensor and also in your very own PRTG under Setup->PRTG API->Custom Sensors.
