PRTG & Grafana



I am maintaining the most up to date server version of PRTG, and did a fresh installation of Grafana along with the most updated(yet still older) PRTG data source. The interesting thing is that many sensors don't show up in Grafana when trying to map them out. Is that something with PRTG and it's ability to share data, or more of a Grafana/PRTG Data source issue?

Hello Tim,

As the Grafana Datasource is querying the PRTG API, and we don't restrict the polling of the API this is most likely to be a data source issue.

I must assume that the data source is not polling for the right types of data here.

Kind Regards,
