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



Your Vote:



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:
Other outputs can be generated using the XML Table Query Builder on the same page. Other parameters can be also found below.

Best regards,
