Average multiples sensors using API



I want to extract averages from multiple sensors, more specifically from an entire tag (sensorping) using API to generate CSV or XML file. In the documentation I found only to obtain averages from a single sensor (https://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg/historic_data).

Its possible?

api average csv reports sensor tags xml

Hi there,

via the API this is only possible via a script which queries the sensors one by one. Did you checked our Reports feature in PRTG? With this feature, you are able to select Sensors by tag and configure a certain report template which meets your requirements.

Hi Heller,

I want to get specific information in the historical data, just three in table summary data, the table with details is irrelevant (contain date and time).

Is it possible to obtain this type of data via script in CSV or XML?

Hi WC,

You can take a look at our historic data API documentation. In this way, you can query historic data via a script. In addition, you can define a certain output format.
