Export list of sensors by type and frequency?



Hi Paessler,

Im trying to chart which sensors we use and in which quantity, similar to the list provided on the status page like thus

1x wmiprocessor, 6x wmivolume, 1x snmpuptime, 3x snmptraffic, 2x snmpdiskfree, 1x snmpcpu, 3x snmpmemory,

however in a slightly easier to handle format and perhaps via api? I am having a bit of a headache trying to get that list mangled into a csv/json for sorting.

cheers sam

Hi there,

The following will give you a list of all sensortypes:


You can use this CSV to count the single sensortypes returned.

Best regards.
