Template for device(s)



We are importing into PRTG a whole list of devices. The devices are all the same type of Cisco router / switches

Now we want to have a basline / template for those devices, example

  • Ping
  • CPU Usage
  • IP SLA sensors (3 x)
  • Interface sensor

When we have this template / basline, we want that implemented on a range of IPs. Is this possible without any manual intervention, so with the use of auto-discovery?

You could create a device and then use the PRTG API to clone the device.

For more information, see PRTG Manual: Object Manipulation.
