I have a Microsoft SQL v2 sensor collecting a total count of orders in our system. How can I display that number only in big on a plasma TV?

Thank you for your message.

Regarding what you would like to achieve, I invite you to add the custom map object provided in the KB article below in the \webroot\mapobjects folder of your PRTG server (located in the installation directory "C:\Program Files (x86)\PRTG Network Monitor").


Then, by using the object Last value (on white) from the section Status icons you should be able to only display the sensor's value.

If you have questions, do not hesitate.

This is awesome. 2 more questions please.

  1. - its tiny and no one can see the number on the screen. How do I make it much bigger?
  2. - There is a # after the actual number. How do I get rid of that?

To make the value bigger, you need to modify the custom map object to include the value within a span tag and apply a CSS style as illustrated below:

<span class="label" style="font-size:40px;"><#objectstatus name="lastvalue" id="<@objectid>"></span>

Here is the entire code:

<!--Status Icons: Last Value (On White)-->

<div class="map_object map_icon mapicon_status_white" id="<@itemid>" objectid="<@objectid>" subid="<@subid>" style="<#mapobject type="topleftcoordinates" subid="<@subid>" mode="<@editmode>">">
  <#mapobject type="objectgrip" mode="<@editmode>">
  <#mapobject type="htmlbefore" subid="<@subid>">
  <#checkobjecttype objecttype="sensor" nicemessage="true" id="<@objectid>">

  <span class="label" style="font-size:40px;"><#objectstatus name="lastvalue" id="<@objectid>"></span>
  <#mapobject type="htmlafter" subid="<@subid>">

Of course, feel free to change the name of the object as well as the font size by modifying the first line as well as the value after "font-size:".

Concerning the unit displayed, I'm afraid that it belongs to the value (they both come together) and therefore can't be removed.
