I want PRTG to ping some IP addresses. Just simple ping and get Historic data.

Do not want to add a device to add a ping sensor. I just want to add ping Sensor.

Hi Faizan,

I'm afraid that's not the concept of PRTG's device tree. A sensor always needs to be added to a device. What you can do, to get a different view, is to build your personal maps for illustration.

Kind regards,
