HTTP XML/REST Value for Sensor Status



Hi PRTG Support,

I would like to ask regarding HTTP XML/REST Value, i was able to get the total number of device in a group using the API below


Would it be possible if i could get the total number of a sensor status? for instance ping sensor status?

The HTTP XML/REST Value will show the total number of ping sensors that is currently up and total number of ping sensor that is current down.


display http-xml-rest-value-sensor sensor

You find the filter for the status of sensors under "Setup | PRTG API | Live Data". In here you have to scroll down to the "Sorting and Advanced Filtering" section and look into the "filter_status" command.

Kind regards
