Filtering System Status API Calls

Hi there, i'm making a monitoring dashboard for our PRTG hosts and have it almost working. However, i was wondering if there is a way to filter the output of getstatus.xml?id=0 to only give certain crucial information.

I could do this with slice on my dashboard server but i hope you can help with this as it'd be very useful to have a customsiable api call to tell us critical things.

Thanks Samuel

api prtg system-status

Well you can't filter for certain properties, but filtering via ID (to only get info about the object and its child items) works. You'll need to apply the filter afterwards in your dashboard application :)

a fair request :) Currently all i need is

  • New Messages
  • New Alarms
  • Alarms
  • Ack Alarms
  • Background Tasks
  • Version

I configured them to return this data for certain groups but am struggling to make it a simple system wide status report. We monitor around 8000 devices with 100k+ sensors over 6 PRTG host devices, i have the data aggregating from all of them into Dashing however that server receiving all the information and then configuring it is proving dang near impossible for some unknown Ruby reason :)

Couldn't you turn the response json into an object and only show certain properties?
