PRTG with my monitoring API




I have my own Access Point controller that its communication between AP and controller using the CAPWAP protocol which by default the SNMP will be disabled and take over by the controller. But the question is, can i also use PRTG to monitoring my AP that already manage by the controller ? i already got the API of the controller from the AP Vendors. which if i saw the API is using JSON and only can use "get" command.

Hi there,

I would recommend to take a look at our REST Custom Sensor. This sensor can run an API get request and map the JSON or XML result to sensor values.

Kind regards,
