We have a Citrix farm that we monitor, and we monitor the license server service using wmi to generate graphs showing used and available licenses. This works as it should, but we would like to show just the numeric live value of the used and available licenses on a external webpage (Dashboard). I have played around with the API, but this does not seem to generate the code that i need to make this work.

There are various ways to do this:

  • You can either use the technique suggested by Torsten (How can I publish my monitoring results) using an <IFRAME>
  • Or you use some code inside your webserver that requests the value from PRTG's API and displays it in the page's HTML.
  • Or you use some AJAX on your webpage that requests the value from PRTG's API

More about the API: How can I access my monitoring data via an external interface (e.g. an API)?

Anyway, there is - except for the IFRAME solution - no out of the box solution. Depending on the technology used on your webpage you will need to make your "hands dirty" and write some code. Since I know too little about your project I can not suggest a more detailed approach.

The answer really does not answer my question. How can i show a live numeric sensor value and not a graph on an external website?
