How can I run a report and export it to an excel file?



Hello everyone.

I have recently become the administrator of sorts for our PRTG setup. That being said, we have a lot of servers with WMI disk space sensors. One thing I've noticed is that the sensors do not update automatically after they've been set up. After the initial WMI scan, the disks shown are pretty much static unless the sensor is recreated. This becomes problematic if a drive is taken away or, in rare cases, added to a server.

Our PRTG setup is probably small compared to some others but there is easily well over 100+ servers, physical and virtual, that all have WMI multi disk space sensors. Needless to say, checking to make sure that these are up to date is important should drives be added or taken away.

Is there a way to run a report on the WMI sensor data, which drives its currently reading and export it to an excel document? Checking it manually is possible, but having to individually check every single multi diskspace sensor to make sure that it's showing all the drives is a bit of a task. Thanks for the support!
