How do I create a breakdown report of all entered probes, nodes and sensors

I need to extract all already entered devices, per probe, group and all their current monitored sensors in a CSV format, so we can easily compare what hardware we still need to transfer from our old monitoring tool to PRTG. Ideally such a report would also be capable of showing details like what notification has been set on individual sensors. These could be two separate reports if that simplifies things, but it is important to be able to create an copy and paste-able (to Excel) overview of all entered hardware.

Hello ahoppe,

Thank you for your contact.

The best approach is to extract the information via PRTG's API as .xml file, because there is no PRTG report that is capable of exporting such information.

Please navigate to Setup | PRTG API | Live Data and check the pre-defined API query for All sensors (with current status information).

The API call is:
/api/table.xml?content=sensors&columns=objid,group,device,sensor,status,message,lastvalue,priority,favorite
Other outputs can be generated using the XML Table Query Builder on the same page. Other parameters can be also found below.

Best regards,
Sebastian

I have one Primary Probe device and three remote probes. However, when I run the All sensors API query, It only reports sensors from the Primary Probe device and not three remote probes. How can I include the remote probe devices in the report?

Hello rrivera,

Thank you very much for your contact.

Unfortunately, I am not able to re-produce the described behavior. The API call: /api/table.xml?content=sensors&columns=objid,group,device,sensor,status,message,lastvalue,priority,favorite exports a .xml file which contains all sensors, no matter if they are deployed to the Local or a Remote Probe.

Would you please re-check this once more?
Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Sebastian

Can you explain what can cause the report to only report on the core probe device, and not the remote probes?

Hi there,

What exactly do you want to achieve?

You can export a sensor overview from only a Remote Probe as well. To do so, please navigate to the Remote Probe's Overview tab to identify the Object ID of the Remote Probe. This ID can be found within the right sided content window which contains Status, Dependency, Default Interval and ID.

Afterwards, navigate to Setup | PRTG API | Live Data | XML Table Query Builder and select the required table information as well as the output format and add the Object ID of the Remote Probe underneath.

If you have further questions, please don't hesitate to contact us again but please precisely explain what you want to do.

Best regards,
Sebastian
