Thank you for your message.

Regarding what you want to do, you can use the HTTP Advanced sensor to check if the div markup with the id AP_Container exists.

If you need to execute further actions/control, then I invite you to use a custom script with the EXE/Script or EXE/Script Advanced sensor.

For further information on how to use custom sensors with PRTG, I invite you to have a look to our corresponding manual: https://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg/custom_sensors

If you have questions, let us know.
