Trigger notification after every sensor run



Hello, It sounds stupid but I like prtg to trigger a notification after each run of a sensor. Root cause is that I want to transfer status and more of a sensor to an external database and I think about using 'http action' notification. I could run a new sensor very frequently to export sensors data that has changed since the last run but this will bring useless load on the system.

Or is there an other possibility to export data from prtg to another database directly after the sensor ran?

Regards thomas

If you want to have a notifcation triggered every scanning interval, then I would say to set something like a threshold trigger and have it set to a threshold that will be met each scanning interval.

You can also set up PRTG to autmatically export data. You can find more information about this below:
