This article applies as of PRTG 22.2.77

Python update and Python library update

PRTG 22.2.77 includes an update of the Python distribution. The update includes the following changes:

  • Update to Python 3.9.12
  • New /paesslerag_prtg_sensor_api/ library

Python 3.9.12 update

Check the Python 3.9.12 changelog for a comprehensive list of changes and deprecation notices.

New /paesslerag_prtg_sensor_api/ library

We renamed the Python helper library from prtg to paesslerag_prtg_sensor_api. To make sure that your Python Script Advanced sensors continue to work properly, please review the updated Python Script Advanced sensor example and adjust your Python scripts accordingly.

Example based on sensor_example.py:

  • Before PRTG 22.2.77:

from prtg.sensor.result import CustomSensorResult from prtg.sensor.units import ValueUnit

  • As of PRTG 22.2.77:

from paesslerag_prtg_sensor_api.sensor.result import CustomSensorResult from paesslerag_prtg_sensor_api.sensor.units import ValueUnit

Note: You can find the example sensor_example.py in the \python subfolder of the PRTG program directory under:

%programfiles(x86)%\PRTG Network Monitor\Custom Sensors\python


%programfiles%\PRTG Network Monitor\Custom Sensors\python
