Hello there,

It's not possible to sum up to values via the API. You have got two options at this point:

  • Create a custom script which does the math outside of PRTG
  • Create a Sensor Factory Sensor which sums up the values in PRTG. These values can also be requested via the API.

Best regards, Felix
