How to custom a map object just to have the value of traffic( in or out) for a MAP




I'm doing a network map to see our switch, the connexions to them, and i'd like to see the traffic between the switch. I'm already monitoring the switch via PRTG, and I have my sensor getting the values


I'd like to put at the side of each switch the real time traffic. i dont see any object like that ( just to have the value, no need more) I saw we can do custom object, anyone can provide help? thanks

More info

For exemple, I want traffic In, and Traffic Out, I know how to get the last value of a sensor, but I need to get for exemple: TrafficIN LastValue(Of traffic In)

TrafficOUT LastValue (of traffic Out)

i'm using this one

  1. <!--Status Icons: Last Value (On White)-->
  1. <div class="map_object map_icon mapicon_status_white" id="<@itemid>" objectid="<@objectid>" subid="
  2. <@subid>" style="<#mapobject type="topleftcoordinates" subid="<@subid>" mode="<@editmode>">">
  3. <#mapobject type="objectgrip" mode="<@editmode>">
  4. <#mapobject type="htmlbefore" subid="<@subid>">
  5. <#checkobjecttype objecttype="sensor" nicemessage="true" id="<@objectid>">
  1. <span class="label">
  2. <#objectstatus name="trafficin" id="<@objectid>">
  3. <#objectstatus name="lastvalue" id="<@objectid>">
  1. </span>
  2. <#mapobject type="htmlafter" subid="<@subid>">
  3. </div>

(I quoted to avoid issue posting) But it's on the same line, and it show: Not found, and the valor of the last value( working well) thanks
