Monitor JSON over Proxy - Int, String and Boolean



Hello PRTG Team

I'm having trouble monitroing a Webapplication.

Till today we monitor most of our applications with the XMLvalue.exe sensor with the following paramters: -ps= -u=https://website.foo/monitoring -n=mail/queue/count -----> count = integer

Due to more and new applications we now need to monitor a integers, strings and booleans delivered in a JSON file. As far is i know the XMLvalue.exe can only monitor integers and floats.

-ps= -u=https://website.bar/monitoring -n=db/connection/database -----> database = string

Is there a Sensor which meets our needs? - Open URL over Proxy - Integer, String and Boolean - Node selection

Hi Bluecare,

I'm afraid that strings can only be displayed in the last message field. It will require a custom sensor, which converts the strings into integer values. You can then use Lookups to translate the values into particular names and status.

Kind regards,
