Beta sensors in PRTG

Beta sensors are a part of the experimental features in PRTG. You can enable beta sensors to test the most recent developments from our sensors team.

Important notice: The operating methods and the available settings of sensors in beta status can change at any time. Do not expect that all functions work properly, or that this sensor works as expected at all. Be aware that sensors in beta status can be removed from PRTG at any time.

Enable and use beta sensors

  • Open the PRTG web interface and navigate to Setup | System Administration | Monitoring.
  • Go to section Experimental Features and enable Beta Sensors.
  • Open the Add Sensor dialog and search for beta. You can now see all available beta sensors.

Note: If you disable beta sensors, existing beta sensors change to the Unknown status.

Provide feedback

If you want to share your beta sensor experiences with us, please send your feedback to [email protected].
