PRTG device archive



Is it possible in PRTG to exclude device from alerts/dashboards etc, without loosing historical data? If not, I would like to submit a feature-request, to make it possible to "archive" a device (instead of deleting)...

Archiving a device would mean, that it would not appear anywhere (sensor licensing, alerting, dashboards etc), but historical data would still be accessible in a separate menu (archived devices, maybe with optional "reactivate")...

Hello there,

I am afraid PRTG does not have such as feature.

To propose a new feature, please refer to the steps stated in the below KB post:

New Feature Request
