How many sensors do I have?



Hello, good morning, I have a question .. It is possible to get a report of how many sensors and what type are installed in the prtg console, for example snmp type sensors I have 100, wmi type sensors I have 45 etc. It's possible?

This can be done using PRTGapi and PowerShell:

Get-Sensor | Select Id,Name,Type | Group-Object -Property Type The output will look something like this:

PS C:\Users\steph> Get-Sensor | Select Id,Name,Type | Group-Object -Property Type

Count Name                      Group

    1 Sensor (clusterstate)     {@{Id=31; Name=Cluster-Zustand; Type=Sensor (clusterstate)}}
