Reading the Monitoring Database

Hi

I hope that you are well

I am hoping to use PRTG in conjunction with some other systems to create ad-hoc or monthly reports for my Managed Services clients.

I have seen that the database files within the Monitoring Database folder are called "*.prd". Could you please confirm if:

I can open the files in MySQL, or mirror the files to a MySQL database? I could make calls to the database to "read" the data contained within the files? Similar to how I can work with php and MySQLi to output values in the table.

Thank you for any assistance that you can provide.

Thank you

Kind Regards

Chris

Sorry, the database format is proprietary (and binary) and can therefore not be read outside of PRTG.
