I have question about PRTG. I can bring number sensor up and number sensor down to perform calculations or not. and show graph %

Ex. Link Sensor Number up : 5000 Link Sensor Number down : 100

Calculate % = (100/5000)x100 = 2%

PRTG can do this? and plot graph %

I tried looking up number sensor up and sensor down bring to calculate but i can't found.

Please Help me find a way to calculate and show graph on PRTG. I want to calculate % of number sensor link down.

Now l set one sensor by one link. (Now i have total link around 7500 Link and further increase in the future.)

graph percentage prtg-network-monitor-8-x

Hey Noah,

we've tried to reproduce the behavior in our environment and it seems that the SensorCountXML.exe works with older version of PRTG (before 17.4.35) only.

For newer versions and hosted instances, please use a Rest Custom sensor instead as described under this KB article.

Best regards,
Sven

I've been using the SensorCountXML sensor for a while on a self-hosted installation of PRTG. Now I'm trying out the Paessler-hosted PRTG and cannot seem to get it working. I have installed the custom sensor on a remote probe server on our network and have tried setting it up to query a group in our Paessler-hosted core server. I keep getting the following error:

<prtg><error>1</error><text>The request was aborted: Could not create SSL/TLS secure channel.</text></prtg>

I'm passing parameters like this:

-s=https://MYSUBDOMAIN.my-prtg.com -u=MYUSERNAME -p=MYPASSHASH -r=2014

Do you have any ideas on what I am doing wrong?

Follow-up comment in case anyone else stumbles on this thread. PRTG Tools Family added an input parameter (-ph for passhash) to the SensorCountXml sensor earlier this summer that allows it to work with the hosted version of PRTG. http://prtgtoolsfamily.com/downloads/sensorsxml
