celsius to farenheit



All my devices under mgmt are displaying temperature data in Celsius, that is not what we use. How can we change that to Fahrenheit.

Hello there,
thank you for your KB-Post.

PRTG doesn't implement a standard temperature unit yet. Some sensors support this conversion but it's sensor-specific. So check the sensor's settings if there's an option of switching between Celsius and Fahrenheit is available.

Otherwise, you could use the Sensor Factory Sensor to create a new sensor that uses the value in Celsius as source and converts it to Fahrenheit. Please have a look here for instructions:
