Can PRTG do sensor reading in a order that I define?



Hi there,

Just wondering if PRTG can do sensor reading in a specific order, for example, I have 2 sensors both have time interval for 10 seconds:

Can I make the sensor reading like this: Sensor A read at XX:10:00 Seneor B read at XX:10:01 Sensor A read at XX:10:10 Sensor B read at XX:10:11 . . .

I want the system to do sensor A reading right before doing sensor B reading.

Thanks for your help in advance.

By default this is not possible. PRTG will schedule the sensor scans automatically. You can however set a sensor to run at a specific time to accomplish this.
