Hiding Specific Device/Sensor from list of Downed Sensors

Hi guys,

We're well on the way with customising/modifying maps and objects, however, I can't work out if it is possible to exclude a specific device/sensor from the list of downed sensors.

I can understand why people may think this is a bad idea, but we want the list of down sensors to only really show the high priority downs...

The sensor/device I'm trying to exclude is our Veeam backup sensors/server. We have PRTG monitoring the job state, and we don't necessarily want the failed jobs to appear in the downed sensors list, as the backup states are displayed elsewhere.

I modified the downed list to exclude Acknowledged Downs, but is it possible to exclude a specific sensor/device?

Appreciate your help, James

That's possible when you add specific tags to them. Modify the data table object like this:

columns="sensor,status,lastvalue,minigraph,priority,favorite,probegroupdevice,message"
sortby="probegroupdevice"
infoheader="false"
links="false"
sortable="false"
varexpand="tabletitle"
tabletitle="@tabletitle"
filter_tags="@tag(-DontShowInErrorTable)"
filter_status="5"

Have a look at the second last line. It implies that objects that have the tag DontShowInErrorTable won't be listed in the table :)

Is this still valid for current versions of PRTG? I can not find a way to edit map obejcts in this fashion.

Hi there,

You need to modify the actual .htm file located in <PRTG Application folder>\webroot\mapobjects.
They can't be edited within the map editor.


Kind regards,
