Custom table: windows update status

Hi,

I would like some guidance on how to create a new map showing the status of Windows Updates across all my servers (around 20). I would like a table to show; Server name, time since last update and the Windows Updates which are of type "missing".

The Windows Update Status sensor has many channels, including 'time since last update' and others showing the number of updates which are missing or installed.

How can I create such a table? And how would I populate it for all my servers? Or would I simple create a new table (a 1 row table) for each server and stack them visually to create the illusion of a table??

I have read a few articles on creating custom tables by copying an existing table, but I'm struggling to understand how to incorporate the items I need.

Many thanks in advance.

Miyo,

Can you show me these articles you've read on creating these tables?

I'm not aware of this functionality.

They did not. Can you open a support ticket and put them in there?

Hi,

Actually the screen shots just illustrated what I wanted to achieve vs what I am able to do right now. I'll try to upload again.

Re your first question about the links; here they are again....

I submitted a reply earlier today, but it said it was awaiting moderation.

Thanks.

Ok, the issue is that the Data Tables cannot combine data from multiple sensors. They can only look at a single sensor.

To do what you're looking to do, you would have to pull the data out with an API call, and then build your own custom map object based on the data you extract from PRTG.

It's possible, just not with the native toolset we have in PRTG.
