How can I display a value from a sensor in a map as text?



I want to use the disk free sensor to display the information on a map in various ways. I have done a graph and it runs fine. I also want to just display it as a large number, but I can not work out how to get the data into a text field! I presume I use custom HTML element, and then put it in a span or something I can style, but how do I actually get the data to to show and update?

I would also like to be able to show this as a pie chart, but as far as I can tell there are none? Is there any type that can show the current disk free in a way it is easy to see if it is filling up?

Hi there,

You can either add some Custom CSS to the "styles_custom_v2.css" on the Core Server under "C:\Program Files (x86)\PRTG Network Monitor\webroot\css\" to alter any of the "Status Icons"-Texts or you add one of the "Status Icons" to the Map and add a style block to the "HTML-Before"-field of the object:

<style>/** YOUR CSS HERE **/<style>

You can also find all original objects under "C:\Program Files (x86)\PRTG Network Monitor\webroot\mapobjects" which you can alter or duplicate and alter.

Best regards.
