Http data push sensor



Some devices are able to push several data in the same http string like:

http: <probe_ip> : <port_number> / <token> ?value1= <integer_or_float> &value2= <integer_or_float>& value3= <integer_or_float>&......&text= <text message>

Before doing the test and understand by myself, I would like to have some information. Many possibilities for the PRTG data push sensor:

  • take that 3 values as different channels of the same sensor
  • parse the value corresponding to the unique value defined in the sensor parameters
  • parse the x values corresponding to the x values defined as the different chanels of a sensor in its parameters
  • no action
  • error information

What will be the behaviour of the PRTG data push sensor.

I would like to have the choise to use the third solution or the second one

thank you very much for your KB-Post. In the moment, the HTTP Push Data Sensor can only accept one value. So you will need 3 sensors if you want to push "in" 3 values into PRTG via webhooks.
You can then use Error- / Warning-Limits in the Channel Settings of those sensors to compare the results with certain limits, and set the sensor into a certain state if the limits are exceeded.

best regards.
