collected snmp data usable i.e. import to excel???



Dear experts, is it possible to use the snmp-data collected by PRTG, i. e. to import the data in Excel? However - the data seems to be stored under "C:\ProgramData\Paessler\PRTG Network Monitor\Monitoring Database\20130522" as .prd file. Please correct me if I'm wrong! Is it possible to read and export this data format?

Any help will be highly apreciated! best regards joejoe

You can export data for sensors through the historic data tab for the sensor then use that data in Excel. The options there are to export to html, xml and csv.

The prd files are for our proprietary database that is used by PRTG and you cannot export or import data from them sorry.
