Hello,

my task is to create a list of all components and there Software Versions. So I decided to use our PRTG Solution and create a Custom SNMP Sensor on each device to get the Version. We use Devices like Cisco / Checkpoint / F5 and so on. I created these sensors with the specific OID and I get the Value of the Version from this sensor in the Big Green Status Field from the Sensor. (Ping Sensors says "ok" and my Custom Sensor Displays the Value I got from my Device) for Example my Checkpoint Say "R76.45" The Graph of this sensor only shows the Speed, how fast our Checkpoint reply to this request and this is ok, the only information I need in a Report is the "R76.45" from the Status. I Tagged all Versions Sensors with "VersionSensor" and create a Report with all Sensors that are Tagged with "VersionSensor" but I got only Tables with the SPEED Value .... I dont want to know how fast my device reply to PRTG I want the Information behind the request

please help Michele

Ah, you could use the API for that:

http://<your-prtg-server>/api/table.xml?content=sensors&output=csvtable&columns=group,device,sensor,status,message&[email protected](VersionSensor)

This should give you a CSV list of the sensors and their versions. You can strip unwanted columns from the query if you like. Does that suit your needs? :)

P.S: An overview of the API possibilities can be found directly on your PRTG server: http://<your-prtg-server>/api.htm

Is the speed channel the main channel of the sensor? Can you try clicking the small pin in the version channel, making this the favorite channel? Can you send me a screenshot of the sensors overview page?

I Hope the link will work: http://s14.directupload.net/images/141020/8psog6to.jpg

so I got only the speed Channel from this sensor. But as I said we need the information in the big green line and Make reports about this Text Value.

Hello Mr. Linke,

its work like a charm, I had also the idea to use the api before, but unfortunately it is not accessable from the Enterprise Console and I searched to late in the webgui :)

so Thanks for this case
