How to generate a report for all sensors of a certain type?

Greetings Sam,
we appreciate your contact.

The link you've provided above will show you the list of all you sensors of that type. ( http://prtgserver/sensors.htm?filter_type=ptfsslcertexpiration )

  • 1. Within that sensors list kindly use the "select all" checkbox and multi-edit to add a new tag to all sensors, e.g.: ptfsslcertexp.
  • 2. Once all sensors have a specific tag, please proceed by Creating a New report (Under the Reports menu option).
  • 3. When creating the new report, configure the new Report's name and use the List of Sensors (no graph) Template.
  • 4. Configure the "Add Sensors by Tag" to only include ptfsslcertexp.

Once that was completed you can save the report and run the report on the Run Now tab. Please perform the report for "today" to get the current Days to Expiry value.

Note: Most sensors will have a built-in default tags (pingsensor, httpsensor, snmptrafficsensor) this sensor being one exception, that's why you must add the tag to the sensors manually first.
