Is it possible to integrate a 1-Wire Multisensor into PRTG Miniprobe?




I'm currently trying to integrate a 1-Wire Multisensor into PRTG Miniprobe without success. Before this I tried another sensor which worked fine (Temperature DS18B20 via GPIO). The sensor showed up with correct Temperature on the PRTG Core Server which the RaspberryPi with the Miniprobe is connected to.

I configured the other Multisensor (WireGate 1-Wire - B-Serie V3.0 - Standard Line Temperature and Humidity) correctly. This sensor is connected via Busmaster DS9490R to the RaspberryPi. After running the "sudo python setup.py configure" command in Miniprobe i ran into an error: No such file or directory: '/sys/devices/w1_bus_master1/w1_master_slaves'. I have configured everything correctly, the only problem is that Miniprobe doesn't find the correct directory where the temperature and humidity data is stored in. I was able to gather the temperature and humidity data from the Multisensor via console with the command "owget".

I would like to collect temperature and humidity data from RaspberryPi via Multisensor onto the PRTG Core Server.

Thank you for your help!

Have you seen https://<yourprgserver>/api.htm?tabid=9 (Setup > PRTG API) ?

"if the available HTTP push sensors are not sufficient for your needs, you can still use the Mini Probe API"

Looks like the API here is still under development and i think your requirement can be solved by a httppush-sensor. very easy

Why not using a CRON-Job to start a small script to read the values and simply us a WGET or similar to post it directly to the next PRTGProbe/Server ?

I do a lot with distributed HTTPPush_Sensors to reduce the footprint of Probes around. Especially in IoT environments.

Have a look at: blog.paessler.com: PRTG and Your Daily Life #1 - Ledunia, the Wi-Fi-Enabled IoT Dev Board

The ESP8266 is a great board to grab data like I2C, 1wire, etc and send HTTP-Posts to PRTG. And because there is no "operation System" on these devices, you do no have to patch a lot. And they can run on batteries for a long time.

Thin about a ESP8266 connected to 1Wire, waking up every 5 Minutes, measure the 1wire data, starts WiFi to send the data to PRTG and go back to a deep sleep. Can rund Months or even years with 3x AAA batteries.

Starting point ?
