Good afternoon,

I'm creating the new PRTG server for my company and I've got a litlle problem about how to organize my sensors.

First of all I've to define two different kind of sensors: VIP and normal. Normal sensors follow a schedule that let them run only from 8am to 8pm; VIP sensors run 24h;

Another important thing is that I need to see all the VIP sensors in a map, using a sunburst or a treemap object.

My current structure is: Remote_Probe1 > Server1 >>> Server1_Sensor1 (with normal schedule) >>> Server1_Sensor2 (with normal schedule) >>> Server1_Sensor3 (with VIP schedule) >>> Server1_Sensor4 (with normal schedule)

Remote_Probe2 > Server2 >>> Server1_Sensor1 (with normal schedule) >>> Server1_Sensor2 (with VIP schedule)

How can I show all the VIP scheduled sensors in a single Sunburst/Treemap object? I see that I can add tags, but I can't use them to filter the sensors shown in the sunburst/treemap, is there a way to achieve this?

Hello Andrea,

I think the best solution is to work with a library (https://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg/libraries). In a library, you can add nodes where you can filter with a tag or a priority.

I hope this fits your requirements.


Kind regards,

Libraries can help me grouping sensors but how can I choose a library as source for an object in a map?

I tried use that script but the object doesn't appear (I mean that in the right part of the Map Designer under the "Custom Object" section there'snt the object), why?

I see that since 2012 customer ask for this feature, I really hope that Paessler listen to use and allow us to use Library as source for object in map ...

Andrea,

Can you open a support ticket, and send me the map object htm file you created?

I tried this: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/59942-how-can-i-use-a-status-icon-of-a-device-in-maps-which-only-considers-specific-sensors

and now it works.

The bad thing is that I see only the node, and not the child of it, is it possibile to show the childs of the node?

Only when the child objects of the node are devices or groups.
