Single sensor data text box for network map



I'm using what I've built in Network Weathermap as the basis for this question. I'm looking to design a similar map to what's been done, specifically have current bandwidth for a link between devices displayed within a simple, transparent box; no labels, no other information other than the data from the sensor I want to look at. I would use this for other things, such as overlaying CPU or other health data on top of the icon representing the device in question as embedding this information makes the links displayed cleaner as they don't need to intersect other data.

I've seen several guides about modifying the existing htm files, but nothing really toward accomplishing this.

Other links in old KB articles that were supposedly a repository of templates or other modifications has disappeared.

Would anyone have a specific file to accomplish the above, or have a better link to said repository, if it even still exists?

Hi there,

Your desired outcome is very hard to achieve with just HTML and CSS. Please note that most of your described desires need access to PRTGs backend in order to retrieve the data and even then I am not sure if that is technically doable. Therefore I am afraid you need to figure a way out to achieve this. Or you use an external tool to create a dashboard with the use of PRTGs API.

Best regards.
