Remote Probe Icon




Is it possible to change the Icon of the remote probes? We would like to have the company icon for every customer which has a remote probe.


icon prtg remote-probe

thank you very much for your KB-Post. The first option to do this could simply be replacing the image file:


with an png-image of your choice (size should be 14 x 14 pixel). This would be overwritten with PRTG Updates though.
The 2nd option would be "customizing" the PRTG webinterface, by referring to a custom icon in the styles_custom.css:

#objecttreecontainer row .probe icon {
background-image: url(/icons/ICON_FOR_CONNECTED_PROBE.PNG)!important;

#objecttreecontainer row .offline .probe icon {
background-image: url(/icons/ICON_FOR_DISCONNECTED_PROBE.PNG)!important;

The icons (png-files) should be copied into the icons-subfolder of the webroot - folder of PRTG. best regards.

Thanks, great info! I have the same need as @christopherschatz and it would be great if you could change the icon in the same way you do when changing an icon for an device. #featurerequest
