Hey cgultekin,

could it be, that you think about an "Map". A way to display these informations from PRTG in a way, that is much easier to read?

If I'm right, than take a look to this page:


Maybe this is the solution you want

Dear Cemre

Beside maps, PRTG also comes with three default dashboards (menu "Home".)

Dashboards are no further customisable. If you need different features or a different layout, please create a map. All map objects are htm files found in the PRTG installation folder, subfolder \webroot\mapobjects

You can derive new object if you copy such file, change its first line to give that object a unique name and further change the content of the file, for example to apply a different filter.

Hey Cemre,

It is also possible to "link" the a inline url to the Map-objects. So if an error takes place, you can click on the sensor and be linked to the system with that error (or the sensor itself with all informations.

If you create a new Object in one of your Maps you will see the "Map-object settings" on the right side. One of them is the "External Link" section. There you can link to an Sensor, oder an System. Otherwise also a link to another Map is possible.

If you want to make a deep link, than follow the description from CEO Dirk Paessler in Paessler KB:


But you have to be sure, to use the newest version of PRTG.

I'm not sure if this is what you are looking for, but when using a big TV on the wall PTF TrayNotifier can give your department a constant overview of current alarms including the alarms message.
