HTTP CONTENT, Longer time for request value from arduino server

Hello! I probably already told , i use arduino server on local network, where have 17 temperature sensors, then i use in prtg network monitor HTTP Content to collect this value from server.

So far everything was fine, but now i add some display and sensors on my arduino, and the code on arduino has increased and consequently refreshing time on local server. ( arduino server work on princip: connect server, print value and disconect , then refresh every X second. )

Many times happens that http content request data just in time, when the server is unavailable ( A few seconds ), and PRTG triger warning and then somethimes alarm.

My question is: It is possible to extend the time for request data from server with HTTP Content ? I do not know what the time is right now, I want the request waiting for a few seconds ( cca 5 - 10 sec ) for server ..

Thanyou for help !

Dear svedr

You can increase the timeout in the sensor settings. If you just want to get rid of the red alarm status, you can set the sensor to switch to warning status first (for up to five error scans in succession) before it switches to red. The latter setting is in the same section where you also change the sensor scanning interval.

Hi there,

You could also open up the URL within the sketch after every run using the HTTP Push Data (Advanced) Sensor. This way, the data will be pushed to PRTG on demand and there's no need for PRTG to wait for it.


Kind regards,
