Hi

I'm sorry i just realize to make this thing working you should pointing your browser to your PRTG Server. What i'm doing is im logging in 127.0.0.0 ip address of the server or if you click the PRTG network monitor.

Just another question am i going to add another <img width="100%" src="http://yourprtgserver/images/<#objectid>.png"> if i want to another image?

Thanks for walking me through here i appreciate it.

regards nezky

Depending on your project the function of displaying the actual picture of the devices can be very interesting .

For each device will be necessary to have a picture with the same name as the device ID saved in the images folder .

C:\Program Files(x86)\PRTG Network Monitor\webroot\images

If you have 100 Divices must have 100 images. Or just add the images of the principal devices.

The idea of ​​using the device ID in the image name (< #objectid >.png) is to be used by companies that have several models equipment, the pop-up function will display the image set for each device .

( http :yourprtgserver/) is just The URL of the page in this example. you need to add the access address of your PRTG, can be the IP or URL.

URL EXAMPLE

<img width="100%" src="http://yourprtgserver/images/<#objectid>.png">

IP EXAMPLE

<img width="100%" src="http://10.X.X.X/images/<#objectid>.png">

You Can be used in other ways ( Some browsers do not locate the image as well )

<img width="100%" src="/images/<#objectid>.png">

Hello Zarete Max

i tried out of my curiosity to add another line similar to this

<img width="100%" src="http://10.X.X.X/images/<#objectid>.png">

And yes with same format it display the images since in the group device i have a 2 catalyst 4500 but the only problem is instead of displaying one image per device id it display two images (because i add another line). and same thing if you will add another more it will just keep on adding images. would it be nice if PRTG can somehow add this feature so that monitoring personnel will have an idea what type of device it is upon hovering the mouse?

Hi,

I will forward this article to our GUI team so that we can consider if we want to integrate this in future version of PRTG.

Hi Felix,

Thanks for considering this since for us it will be effective if you have an image since not all the time documentation is update immediately especially in infra upgrade. That's why for us it is much better to please add my vote for this because with this PRTG will be much effective. Thanks felix

Hello,

This feature is not requested this often and as there is a workaround to integrate these images, I'm afraid that it won't be highly prioritized nor can we promise that it will be integrated at all, sorry. Please follow this link to see how we rate and handle feature requests for PRTG.

Best regards, Felix

Hi Felix,

Thanks for replying but as what you said can you give me the workaround for me to implement this thing in our infra? cause for me as a network guy it will be beneficial for me to see the device that you monitor.

Hi,

In the near future, there will be no changes due to the reasons mentioned above. If you want to illustrate which device is in an error state, you can create your own maps which can easily created and display pictures of the device.

Best regards, Felix
