Map object for aggregated down counters




Is there a way to create a map object that shows a count of how many times a sensor have gone down per 24h and 7 days per device? The graphs doesn't really provide a good aggregated view of this.

It could resemble a 2-light traffic light, where one light is the 24 hour counter and the other a 30 day counter, where each light is split (in donut fashion) into each sensor..

There might not be a predefined MAP object to accomplish this - but there are ways to still get it.

  • You could e.g. create a custom sensor script that uses the PRTG API and constantly asks PRTG about this sensor.
  • You could create a NOTIFICATION script that e.g. sends a DOWN counter (+1) every time your sensor goes down to e.g. a HTTP Push sensor

In both cases you would do the down-calculation for 24 hours and 7 days on the script side - but yes - you can relatively easy accomplish this.

All you do then is actually grab e.g. a table-object on the map and show the data from this down-counting sensor...

There are even more ways to accomplish it - those are just two quick examples...
