Insert Meter Point at specific time




I am monitoring a value with a custom made sensor script. It sends the response to PRTG in xml-format. In the graph of the sensor, I can see the value every time the script is executed via PRTG. Is it possible to insert a given value into the PRTG-Database via the API, so that I can see it at that time in the graph?

For example: I insert the value 3 at 29th Apr. 2019 at 2pm and the value 1 at 29th Apr. 2019 at 3pm. I can then see these two values in the "2 days" graph.

Best regards

Hello Moritz,

I'm afraid that it's not possible to change historic data in PRTG and to insert particular historic values, sorry.

Kind regards,
