thank you for your KB-post.
Monitoring a ship with PRTG is pretty cool if you ask me. :)
Now, what exactly would you like to perform (API Related)?
- Would you like to pause a device/sensor(s) via PRTG's API? This can be done with /api/pause.htm?id=objectid&pausemsg=yourmessage&action=0
- Would you like to PUSH custom data (readings) into PRTG? Please check the HTTP Push Data Advanced Sensor, also mentioned here and here.
- Would you like to monitor a 3rd party API and display values in PRTG? Please check the HTTP XML/REST Value sensor (for XML-compatible) or consider creating your own script/sensor with the Exe/Script Advanced sensor. You could even implement this option and use an HTTP notification within this sensor to pause or resume other PRTG sensors.
Please let me know in more details what you're trying to achieve, and I might be able to come up with further instructions.
